World Cup Countdown - Adrian

Spanish domination of international tournaments has been a feature of the last six years, since La Roja lifted the European Championship in 2008.

Since then a World Cup and another Euro title have followed as the Iberian nation put their stamp on the world game.

West Ham United's own Spanish import, Adrian, will be watching his nation's fortunes with interest this summer, although he expects the competition to be fierce.

He said: "Of course I am looking forward to the World Cup. It's the best tournament in the world with the best players and best national teams.

"I'll be enjoying a holiday with my family but I'll certainly be watching! It'll be difficult for Spain, because every other team respects them for winning the Euro Cup, the World Cup and the Euros again.

"It's hard because everyone wants to win this year, but Spain do have a really good team.

"I know Pepe Reina and I speak with him sometimes, and I've played against a lot of the players, but I don't have many relationships with them.

"At the moment Spain have really good goalkeepers. Victor Valdes is injured, but David de Gea will go there with Pepe Reina and Iker Casillas.

"Playing for Spain is the next step in my ambitions. I need to keep going with West Ham, keep improving and why not?"
