Fury was born in Antwerp

The Spanish football team for many years it has been known by the nickname of the “Fury”. But nevertheless, few know that the origin of the nickname comes from the Olympic Games in Antwerp, back in 1920. Spain, already eliminated from the fight for the gold medal faced in their third match in Belgian land to Swedish.

With 1-0 for Scandinavians who were primarily under wood to distribute the identity cards, in the minute 6 the second part was to produce the play where everything would be born. José María Belauste, Basque midfielder Athletic Bilbao, tired of the Swedish abruptness in the game would utter the magic words to kick for a foul: To my platoon (ball), Sabino, the brook! And I said and done. Sabino, His team mate Athletic, he threw the ball over the area, Belauste in control with his chest and was introduced with the same ball in the goal leaving three defenders ahead they could not stop him nor grabs.

A selection for the memory. The Olympic silver.

Spain eventually won the match 2-1 and he managed to hang the silver medal, the first of three would get along history. That meant the championship was the first official match of selection against Denmark (28 August 1920) and the first victory thanks to the solitary goal from Patricio.

Since then, Fury has played 632 parties with a balance of 366 victorias, 146 draws and 120 losses. These are the most important meetings.
