BIO: Iker Casillas Fernandez  is a Spanish football goalkeeper who captains La Liga club Real Madrid and the Spanish national team. Casillas started his football career playing in a junior squad of Real Madrid's youth system during the 1990–91 season. On 27 November 1997 at age 16 he was first called up to the first team to face Rosenborg in Champions League, but it wasn't until the 1998–99 season that he debuted in the senior side. During the 2011–12 season, Casillas won IFFHS Best Goalkeeper award, making him the first and only goalkeeper to win it four times. Casillas played his 600th match for Real Madrid on 22 January 2012 in a 4–1 win against Athletic Bilbao. On 2 May 2012, Casillas clinched his fifth La Liga title and his first as a Captain of Real Madrid, with a 3–0 win at Bilbao. In August, he became Spanish captain to win all 3 domestic titles, La Liga, Copa del Rey and Super Cup.  In 2008 he was on the Spanish team that won their first European Championship in 44 years, the Spanish team that went on to win Spain's first World Cup and the 2012 European Championship. Casillas has been nominated for the European Footballer of the Year award twice. At the end of 2009 he was voted into the UEFA Team of the Year for the third consecutive time.  In 2010, he was awarded with the Sports Prince of Asturias Award. On 19 October 2010, Casillas became the most capped goalkeeper of all time in the UEFA Champions League and in November 2011, he became the most capped player of all time for the Spanish national team.
