Iker Casillas

With a full name Iker Casillas Fernández, was born on May 20, 1981, and is a spanish football player who plays as goalkeeper.

Currently (2011) captain of Real Madrid C.F., is a fix player in the spanish national football selection, and is almost champion at all levels, with Real Madrid and with the national team which won the  Euro 2008 and the 2010 World Cup.

Iker Casillas was selected as the Best Goalkeeper of the World in 2008, 2009 and 2010, being the great rival of the italian Gianluigi Buffon.

In 2011 he was elected the second "Best Goalkeeper of the 1st Decade of the Twenty-First Century" by the International Federation of Football History and Statistics (being outweighed by Gianluigi Buffon). Currently ranked third in the ranking of the "Best goalkeepers in the history" by IFFHS (being outweighed by Gianluigi Buffon and Peter Schmeichel).

But aside from all these statistics, if anything stands out above Iker many others is to be an excellent person, committed above all to the poor. Has a foundation with his name and has been seen many times around the world visiting especially children. For being this way, in 2010 received the award for most outstanding athlete of national human and sporting values "Province of Guadalajara".

Besides his good heart, Iker is also famous for ... no attention. He is not a regular at the camera, except for tributes, and likes to keep his private life in that state, private. He does not like disputes nor bad environment, and usually makes fair play.

His nickname is "the Saint" because the amount of times he has saved his teams from a defeat or a draw.

Followed by children and adults, their way of being and doing should be a role model in a society that claims to be civilized.
