»Goaaal!« – Finally there is a complete football team.
The Spanish national football team, the so-called Furia Roja, presents itself at NOCH, the model landscaping specialist, in its traditional red jerseys.
The team consists out of 10 players and one goalkeeper. The model railway figurines - the football players - have been re-created on a 1:87 scale for the model railway H0 scale and modelled in typical, game-related scenes. The players fight, straddle, curse and run. In combination with other national teams, international matches can be depicted on the model railway landscape or in a diorama.
The Spanish national football team (Spanish: Selección de fútbol de España) is all-star player selection of the Spanish Football Association "Real Federación Española de Fútbol". The mens team is currently (as of 2015) ranked thrid by the FIFA on its worldwide rankings. Spain won the European Championship in 1964, 2008 and 2012. In 2010 the team won the World Cup for the first time. The team's nickname "La Furia Roja" means "The Red Beast" and it was created during the 1920 Olympic Games in Antwerp, in which the team, surprisingly, won the silver medal.
Football as a sport arrived in Spain in the late 19th century, above all, coming from the British Isles. On 21 March 1904, Spain was one of only seven European founder nations of the World Football Association FIFA. However, at this time, there was no national Spanish Association, and the nation was, therefore, represented through the FC Madrid, which is today's Real Madrid. The Spanish Football Association, the Real Federación Española de Fútbol (English: Royal-Spanish Football Association) was founded in 1909. In 1913 it was re-named and in 1914 it finally became a member of the FIFA organisation. (Source: Wikipedia)
