Iker Casillas Fernández (Spanish pronunciation: [ˈikeɾ kaˈsiʎas
feɾˈnandeθ]; born 20 May 1981) is a Spanish professional footballer who
plays as a goalkeeper for Portuguese club Porto and the Spanish national
team. Popularly dubbed "San Iker" ("Saint Iker") for his ability to
produce spectacular saves, Casillas is widely considered to be one of the
greatest goalkeepers of all time,[3][4][5][6][7] known for his
athleticism, quick reactions, and outstanding shot-stopping

Casillas began his youth career with Real Madrid in 1990. After gaining
promotion to the senior team in 1999, he remained with the club for 16
seasons, later serving as club captain. During his highly successful time
in Madrid, he won five La Liga titles, two Copa del Rey titles, four
Supercopa de España titles, three UEFA Champions League titles, two
UEFA Super Cups, one Intercontinental Cup, and the FIFA Club World
Cup. He also amassed 725 appearances for Real Madrid, the second
most in club history, before departing in 2015 to join Porto on a free
transfer.[12] In Portugal, Casillas captured a Primeira Liga and
Supertaça Cândido de Oliveira title.

Casillas debuted for the Spain national team in June 2000 at age 19. To
date, he has made a national record 167 appearances, making him the
joint sixth-most capped male footballer in history, and the joint second-
most capped European player of all time. He became the nation's first-
choice goalkeeper at the 2002 FIFA World Cup, and went on to play at
UEFA Euro 2004 and the 2006 World Cup. In 2008, he was made
captain, and led the team to that year's European Championship. He also
led Spain to their first World Cup in 2010, and retained the European
Championship in 2012.[13] In 2014, Casillas also became one of four
players to represent Spain at four World Cups.[14]
Casillas was nominated for the Ballon d'Or award in 2008, ranking
fourth overall.[15] In 2012, he was voted into the UEFA Team of the
Year for a record sixth consecutive time. Casillas also holds the record
for most appearances by a goalkeeper in the FIFPro World XI, and is the
record appearances holder in the UEFA Champions League.[16][17] He
has also played over 1,000 professional matches,[18] and has won all
major club and national championship titles.

Early life
Casillas was born on 20 May 1981 in Móstoles, Community of Madrid,
to José Luis Casillas, a civil servant in the Ministry of Education, and
María del Carmen Fernández González, a hairdresser.[19] Both his
parents had moved from their home of Navalacruz, Ávila.[19]

Casillas has a brother, seven years younger, named Unai, who used to
play as a central midfielder for CD Móstoles.[20] The brothers'
forenames are of Basque origin due to a family connection to the region:
their paternal grandfather – an officer in the Civil Guard – was posted to
Bilbao and settled in the city, their father grew up there as a result and
Iker also lived in the area as a small child before the family relocated to

On one occasion as a young child, Casillas forgot to post his father's

football predictions for the weekend; his father had correctly predicted
all 15 results, and the family lost out on an estimated €1.2 million (£1

Club career
Real Madrid
Early years
Casillas began his career in Real Madrid's youth system, known as La
Fábrica, during the 1990–91 season. On 27 November 1997, at age 16
and still a junior, he was first called up to the senior team squad to face
Rosenborg in the UEFA Champions League, although he remained on
the bench throughout. After spending a season with the C-team[24] in
the fourth tier, during which they won their regional group,[25] he came
into contention as the club's first-choice between the posts. In starting
the 1999–2000 UEFA Champions League group stage fixture against
Olympiakos on 15 September 1999, he became the youngest goalkeeper
ever to feature in the competition at the time, aged 18 years and 177
days; a record which was only broken in October 2017 by Mile
Svilar.[26] Three days earlier, Casillas had made his La Liga debut in a
2–2 draw against Athletic Bilbao at San Mamés Stadium.[27] In May
2000, he became the youngest ever goalkeeper to play in and win a
Champions League final when Real Madrid defeated Valencia 3–0, just
four days after his 19th birthday.[28][29]

Casillas lost his place in the side to backup César Sánchez after poor
performances in the 2001–02 campaign, but redeemed himself when
Sánchez suffered an injury in the final minutes of the 2002 Champions
League Final. Casillas came on and pulled off several key saves to deny
a rampant Bayer Leverkusen the Champions League crown. Real
Madrid won 2–1.

Casillas in action for Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabéu in 2009

The 2007–08 season was a fruitful season for Casillas, as he helped Real
Madrid reclaim their 31st La Liga title and conceded only 32 goals in 36
matches to claim the Zamora Trophy. On 14 February 2008, he and club
captain Raúl were awarded contracts for life; Casillas signed a contract
extension that would keep him at the club until 2017, with an automatic
extension if he played 30 competitive matches during the final season of
the contract and a buy-out clause of £113 million.[30] His performances
earned him a spot in the UEFA Team of the Year for the second time.

In February 2009, Casillas equalled Paco Buyo's record of 454 matches

played for a goalkeeper and has since surpassed it to become Real
Madrid's most-capped goalkeeper of all time at only 27 years old.[31]
During the 2009 summer transfer window, some Spanish media reported
that Manchester City had launched a record £129 million bid for the
goalkeeper. The club denied the rumours, however, saying that no such
offer had been made. Manchester United had been rumoured to have
enquired about him, but no price was announced.[32] He had been
linked with other Premier League clubs before[33] but Casillas himself
stated that he "had no intention of leaving" his boyhood club.

During the 2009–10 season on 4 October in a game against Sevilla,

Casillas made an extraordinary save, running from one side of his goal
to the other to deny Diego Perotti in a one-on-one, close-range
encounter.[34] After the match, he received praise from fellow Spanish
goalkeepers and England goalkeeper Gordon Banks, who stated,
"Casillas' reflexes are incredible. If he continues to play this well he will
become one of the best goalkeepers in the history of the game." Europa
Press reported that Casillas was the second-most popular Spanish
sportsman on the Internet in 2010. The study performed by company
Vipnet360 examined the web presence on platforms like Facebook,
Twitter and YouTube.[35]

in 2010
During the 2010–11 season, after the departure of first and second
captains of Real Madrid, Raúl and Guti respectively, Casillas was
selected as first captain with new vice-captains Sergio Ramos, Marcelo
and Gonzalo Higuaín.

During the 2011–12 season, Casillas won the IFFHS Best Goalkeeper
award, making him only the second goalkeeper to win it behind
Gianluigi Buffon four times and the only goalkeeper to win the award
four times in a row. 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 in Bilbao.

On 22 December 2012, Casillas was dropped by José Mourinho for a
Liga match against Málaga in favour of Antonio Adán.[36] This was the
beginning of a series of sour disagreements between the Portuguese
coach and the player, some of which, along with other internal affairs,
were allegedly aired to the press by Casillas himself. This generated a
shift in the opinion of certain sectors of Real Madrid's fans, who gave
Casillas the nickname "topor" (a portmanteau of "topo," and "portero,"
Spanish for "mole" and "goalkeeper," respectively).[37] During the
2012–13 season, Casillas won the IFFHS Best Goalkeeper Award for the
fifth consecutive time, making him the only goalkeeper in history to
have ever won that award five times (in a row).

In January 2013, after a serious injury to Casillas, Mourinho signed

Diego López from Sevilla. López was named first-choice 'keeper ahead
of Antonio Adán and kept his place in the team even after Casillas had
returned from injury. After the 2012–13 season, Mourinho left Madrid
and soon after his departure, Spanish midfielder Andrés Iniesta criticised
him for benching Casillas.

In the middle of 2013, it was announced that Carlo Ancelotti would be

Real Madrid's head coach for the 2013–14 season. Real Madrid started
the season with a 2–1 victory over Real Betis in which Casillas was
benched once again. He made his first start in 238 days in the
Champions League group stage match against Galatasaray, but was
injured in the 14th minute after Sergio Ramos caught him with an
accidental elbow as the goalkeeper came from his line to make a routine
catch.[38] Despite being the club's second-choice 'keeper in La Liga,
behind Diego López, Casillas continued to be Madrid's first choice
'keeper in the Champions League and Copa del Rey, setting a new
record of 962 minutes without conceding a goal.[39] In February 2014,
he became the first goalkeeper to play in every round of the Copa del
Rey prior to the final without conceding a goal.[40] On 16 April, he
captained Madrid in the final as they beat rivals Barcelona 2–1 at
Valencia's Mestalla Stadium.
On 24 May 2014, Casillas captained Real Madrid in the 2014
Champions League final, winning the title for the third time in his career
with a 4–1 win over Atlético Madrid in Lisbon; this was the tenth time
Real Madrid had won the trophy.[41][42][43] Following the Champions
League win, the 2014–15 season saw him return to being the club's first
choice goalkeeper, as he then went on to win the UEFA Super Cup over
Sevilla on 12 August 2014.[44][45][46] He then also won the FIFA Club
World Cup later that year, making his 700th appearance for Madrid on
20 December 2014, in the 2014 FIFA Club World Cup Final, as Real
Madrid defeated San Lorenzo 2–0.[47][48][49][50][51]

"You've always been a Real Madrid icon, but above all you've been one
of the best representatives of our position on the pitch. Good luck in
your new adventure, it'll be strange to see you in another shirt from now
on. Go Iker!"
—Juventus and Italy goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon on Casillas following
his transfer to Porto in July 2015.[52]
After much speculation about his future, on 11 July 2015 Casillas signed
with Portuguese Primeira Liga side Porto on a two-year deal with the
option of a one-year extension.[53][54][55] Real Madrid's conduct in his
exit was criticised, with Casillas' parents claiming that he was being
forced out of the club by president Florentino Pérez, who received calls
to quit from fans. Former international teammate Xavi, who earlier that
summer left Barcelona after a similarly long and successful career,
claimed that Real Madrid were ungrateful of Casillas' service to the
Casillas made his Primeira Liga debut on 15 August, keeping a clean
sheet in a 3–0 win over Vitória de Guimarães at the Estádio do
Dragão.[57] On 29 September 2015, he overtook Xavi to become the
player with the most appearances in the Champions League, making his
record 152nd Champions League appearance in a 2–1 home win over
Chelsea.[17] That season, Casillas also broke Edwin van der Sar's record
for the most clean sheets in Champions League history, keeping his 51st
clean sheet in the competition on 20 October 2015, in a 2–0 win over
Maccabi Tel Aviv, as his team climbed top of Champions League Group
G.[58][59] In January 2016, he was blamed for the away loss at Vitória
de Guimarães (1–0) in the league, following a high-profile error.[60][61]

On 11 March 2017, Casillas set a new personal record for clean sheets in
a single season with his sixteenth clean sheet in a 4–0 away win over
Arouca.[62][63] On 14 March, Casillas made his 175th appearance in
UEFA club competitions in a 1–0 away defeat to Juventus in the second
leg of the round of 16 of the UEFA Champions League, overtaking
Paolo Maldini as the player with the most appearances in European club

On 13 September, Casillas equalled Ryan Giggs's record of playing in

19 consecutive UEFA Champions League campaigns when he appeared
in Porto's 3–1 home defeat to Beşiktaş in the 2017–18 edition of the
On 2 April 2018, Casillas played his 1,000th match as a professional in
Porto's 2–0 loss at Belenenses.[18] In May, he won his first trophy with
the club as they won the league title for the first time since 2013.[67]
The 2017–18 Primeira Liga title was confirmed after Sporting CP and
Benfica tied their respective match.[68] On 17 May 2018, he renewed
his contract with Porto for another year.[69] On 4 August, Casillas
started in Porto's 3–1 victory over Desportivo das Aves in the 2018
Supertaça Cândido de Oliveira.[70]

International career
Youth career
Casillas debuted for Spain at the under-17 level. At age 16, he was the
youngest player in the Spanish squad that placed third at the 1997 FIFA
U-17 World Championship in Egypt. He was later made captain of the
U17s. Two years later, he went on to win the FIFA World Youth
Championship and the UEFA–CAF Meridian Cup that same year.
Initially second-choice, he soon worked his way up to first-choice and
eventually earned his first senior cap following some brilliant
performances at club level.

Senior debut, Euro 2000 and 2002 World Cup

Casillas is currently the most capped player in the history of the Spain
national team. Following his full international debut at the senior level
on 3 June 2000 against Sweden (at 19 years and 14 days), Casillas was
an unused substitute at UEFA Euro 2000. He was part of the roster for
the 2002 FIFA World Cup, initially as the understudy to Santiago
Cañizares. Coincidentally, he became first-choice when Cañizares had to
withdraw from the tournament due to injury from a freak accident.[71]
At 21, Casillas was one of the youngest first-choice goalkeepers in the
tournament. He played an instrumental role in Spanish progression when
he saved two penalties in the shoot-out during the round of 16 match
against the Republic of Ireland, earning him the nickname "The Saint".
One of his saves during the quarter-final against South Korea during the
2002 World Cup was rated by FIFA as one of the top ten saves of all

Euro 2004 and 2006 World Cup

Casillas played in all eight Group six fixtures during Euro 2004
qualifying, conceding just four goals. He kept a clean sheet in the second
leg victory of the playoff against Norway which ended 3–0 in Oslo, and
started all of Spain's Euro 2004 matches. He was the first choice for the
2006 World Cup, captaining the team twice, but could not prevent La
Roja from losing 3–1 to a Zinedine Zidane-inspired France in the Round
of 16.

Euro 2008
With the exclusion of his Real Madrid teammate Raúl from the squad
for Euro 2008, Casillas was given the captain's armband. He started the
first two Group D games against Russia and Sweden before being rested
in place of second-choice goalkeeper Pepe Reina for Spain's group stage
elimination of Greece. Casillas saved two penalties from Antonio Di
Natale and Daniele De Rossi as Spain eliminated Italy in the quarter-
finals with a 4–2 shootout win following a goalless draw on 22 June.[73]
Spain later went on to win the competition with a 1–0 win over Germany
in the final on 29 June. Casillas kept clean sheets in all of the quarter-
final, semi-final and final matches, with Sweden's first round goal by
Zlatan Ibrahimović being the last one scored against him. On 29 June
2008, Casillas became the first goalkeeper-captain to lift the UEFA
European Championship trophy when Spain beat Germany in the

In October 2008, Casillas and back-up Pepe Reina broke the national
record for the longest time spent without conceding a goal. The pair
went unbeaten for 710 minutes, longer than Spain's longest-serving
goalkeeper Andoni Zubizarreta and Paco Buyo. Wesley Sonck of
Belgium ended their goalless streak when he scored against them a 2010
World Cup qualifying match.

Casillas was the highest-ranked goalkeeper (fourth place) in the 2008

Ballon d'Or, behind Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and national
teammate Fernando Torres. Also in 2008, Casillas was named the
world's best goalkeeper by the International Federation of Football
History & Statistics (IFFHS).[75] He also came in third place in the best
goalkeepers of all time ranking, beating Oliver Kahn.[75]

2009 Confederations Cup and 2010 World Cup

Casillas was Spain's starting goalkeeper during the 2009 FIFA
Confederations Cup in South Africa, making four appearances as Spain
finished the tournament in third place. On 5 September 2009, after a 5–0
win over Belgium in a qualifying match for the World Cup, Casillas
equalled Andoni Zubizarreta's national record of 56 clean sheets, and
during the Spanish team's next match, against Estonia on 9 September
2009, he surpassed Zubizarreta as the record holder for the most Spanish
international clean sheets (this being achieved in Casillas' 98th
appearance for the national team, while Zubizarreta made 126 before his
retirement).[76] Two months later, Casillas made his 100th appearance
for Spain in its friendly win over Argentina, making him only the third
player in history of Spanish football to ever reach this far

Casillas with the World Cup trophy during celebrations in Spain, July
On 11 July 2010, Casillas captained Spain to their first ever World Cup
title with a 1–0 win against the Netherlands.[78] In so doing, he became
the third ever goalkeeper to captain a World Cup winning side (along
with Gianpiero Combi in 1934 and Dino Zoff in 1982; the feat was later
also achieved by Hugo Lloris in 2018). He was voted the tournament's
best goalkeeper and awarded the Golden Glove. In the course of the
finals in South Africa, he kept five clean sheets, conceded two goals and
saved a penalty in the quarter-final against Paraguay. In the final, he
made two crucial stops from Netherlands' Arjen Robben with the score
at 0–0 after the Dutchman had passed all the defenders.[78] Before he
went to pick up the World Cup trophy, Casillas would later state that
images of the past captains doing the same was in his head, reeling them
off in perfect order going back to the first World Cup he saw as a
“From when I was small, I saw Matthäus lift it. I saw Dunga lift it, I saw
Deschamps lift it, I saw Cafu lift it, Cannavaro… so to watch me lift it, I
could watch it tomorrow, I could watch it within 10 years and it will
always make me emotional because it’s incomparable.”[79]

On 15 November 2011, Casillas became Spain's most capped player,

breaking Andoni Zubizarreta's record after starting for Spain in their 2–2
draw against Costa Rica.[80] On 29 February 2012, in Spain's 5–0 win
over Venezuela, Casillas equalled Edwin van der Sar's record of 72
international clean sheets. On 30 May, in Spain's 4–1 win over South
Korea, Casillas came on for Pepe Reina on the 82nd minute mark. This
set the record for most international victories with 95 giving Casillas yet
another record to his name. On 6 June, In Spain's 1–0 win over China
PR, Casillas set the record for most international clean sheets with

On 1 July 2012, Casillas became the first player to reach 100
international wins for his country. He also set another record with his
509 minutes without conceding a goal in that year's European
Championship, keeping five consecutive clean sheets and breaking the
longstanding tally of 494 minutes set by Italian goalkeeper Dino
Zoff.[82] The only goal he conceded, scored by Antonio Di Natale,
came in Spain's opening match of the tournament, against eventual
runners-up Italy.[83] Casillas then continued his new record for minutes
unbeaten with Spain to 817 minutes.

2013 Confederations Cup and 2014 World Cup

In June 2013, Casillas represented Spain at the 2013 Confederations Cup
in Brazil, making three appearances as Spain reached the final, only to
be defeated by the hosts Brazil.

In June 2014, Casillas was selected to represent Spain in his fourth

World Cup.[84] In the team's opening match, he made two mistakes
leading to goals from Stefan de Vrij and Robin van Persie as the
champions were defeated 5–1 by the Netherlands.[85] After the match,
Casillas apologised for the defeat and called his performance the worst
of his career.[86] He also started in Spain's second group game against
Chile, which they lost 2–0 and were subsequently eliminated from the
World Cup.[87] He received criticism for his role in Chile's second goal,
where he punched Alexis Sánchez's free kick into the path of the
goalscorer Charles Aránguiz.[88][89] On 23 June, Casillas was left on
the bench for Spain's final game against Australia, with Pepe Reina
playing instead.

Euro 2016
On 5 September 2015, Casillas kept a clean sheet in his 100th game as
Spain's captain, a 2–0 Euro 2016 qualifying win over Slovakia at the
Estadio Carlos Tartiere in Oviedo.[90] On 13 November, Casillas kept
his 100th international clean sheet with Spain in a 2–0 friendly win over
England, in Alicante, becoming the first goalkeeper ever – male or
female – to reach this landmark.[91] He equalled the Latvian Vitālijs
Astafjevs' European record of 166 caps on 27 March 2016 by playing in
a friendly against Romania.[92]

On 31 May, Casillas was named to Vicente del Bosque's final 23-man

Spain squad for Euro 2016.[93] The following day, he became the most-
capped European player by earning his 167th cap in a 6–1 friendly win
over South Korea in Salzburg.[94] During the tournament, he was the
second-choice goalkeeper behind David de Gea; Casillas did not make
an appearance during the tournament as Spain was eliminated in the
Round of 16 following a 2–0 defeat to Italy.[95]

2018 World Cup

On 21 May 2018, Casillas was left out of Julen Lopetegui's final 23-man
Spain squad for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.[96][97]

Style of play
"Honestly, I don't have to use up many words to say how good he is, the
results are there for all to see. He has won everything there is to win and
has been on the same great level for so many years now, which is
possibly hardest of all for a goalkeeper. Spain almost never concede
goals and Casillas is the main reason for that."
—Juventus and Italy goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon on Casillas prior to
the UEFA Euro 2012 Final.[98]
Widely considered by pundits, as well as both former and current
goalkeeping colleague, as one of the greatest goalkeepers of all
time,[3][4][99][100][101][102][103] Casillas was given the nickname
"San Iker" ("Saint Iker") throughout his career, for his precocious
performances as a youngster, and due to his ability to produce acrobatic
and decisive saves. In his prime, he was a spectacular and athletic
keeper, who was known in particular for his outstanding agility, reflexes,
consistency and shot-stopping, as well as his foot-work, positioning
between the posts, concentration, and speed when rushing off his line in
one on one situations;[9][100][104][105][106][107] he has also stood
out for his penalty-saving abilities.[8][108][109] In spite of his reserved
character, he has been highly regarded for his strong personality, calm
composure under pressure, and leadership from the back throughout his

A precocious talent in his youth, Casillas has drawn praise for his
longevity and consistency at the top level;[11][99][100][104] despite his
reputation and goalkeeping ability, however, due to his lack of notable
height and strong physical attributes, he has been criticised at times by
pundits for his handling and indecisiveness when coming out to claim
crosses, often preferring to punch the ball away, which led to a series of
errors and less consistent performances in his later career, as he lost
some of his speed and mobility with age.[9][112][113][114] Although
he has occasionally been criticised by pundits for his limited skills with
the ball at his feet in comparison to other Spanish goalkeepers, Casillas's
distribution with both his hands and feet has generally been reliable
throughout his career, and he is capable of sending the ball into deep
areas of the pitch with his long kicks and throws.[99][113][115]
In January 2012, Casillas agreed a sponsorship deal with Adidas to wear
their Response goalkeeping gloves and Predator football boots.[116] The
move to Adidas ended a long running association for Casillas with
Reebok, which started in 2004. In February 2005, Casillas was the
football face of Reebok's "I Am What I Am" global integrated
advertising campaign that linked all the brand's marketing efforts under
one umbrella.[117] Adidas has been the parent company of Reebok
since 2005.

Personal life
Since 2009, Casillas has been in a relationship with sports journalist
Sara Carbonero.[118] Their son Martín was born on 3 January 2014 in
Madrid.[119][120] In November 2015, the couple announced they were
expecting their second child. On 20 March 2016, the couple married. On
2 June 2016, Sara gave birth to the couple's second child, Lucas.[121]
