Editor's Viewpoint: Fantasy football

Sport, and particularly football, is all about opinion. Who is the greatest player, what was the greatest team, who scored the best ever goal? There will always be a myriad of answers, but Spain has earned the right to be included in any list of the best ever international side.

This golden generation of Spanish players have brought fantasy back into football with their sublime and unequalled skills. Their technical ability, their mobility, their work-rate and their success - the first national side ever to win three successive major tournaments - mark them out as very, very special. We should just feel privileged to have seen them, never mind arguing over their all-time ranking.
