 BBC SPORT | Football | World Football | Spain's story of pain
Since then, it has been a story of what might have been for Spain, with defeat in the Euro 84 final against France and agonising World Cup quarter-final exits in 1986, 1994 and 2002.
Despite producing some of the game's finer talents - Francisco Gento, Emilio Butragueno, Andoni Zubizarreta, Raul and Fernando Hierro among them - and with what some consider to be the finest league in the world, Spain has not been equal to the sum of its considerable parts.
Seasoned observers point to the influx of too many foreign players to the Spanish league, the pre-eminence of Real Madrid's as Spain's number one sporting institution and of the long, hard domestic seasons.
