Now is the day when, as I said in the post about "Copa Libertadores" will reveal the name and history of the only Spanish footballer who currently plays in this year.

And he is ... Rubén Cuesta (1981 ) midfielder from Cordoba who emigrated two years ago to Bolivia in search of success that was denied in the fields of Second and Second B. After his experience in Cordoba, Ecija, Atletico Madrid B, Zamora, Guadalajara, Lucena and Linense, met new accents and dialects that led him to become champion of the Bolivian Clausura with Universitario de Sucre, and, of course, to fight against the big teams in Latin America in this edition of the Copa Libertadores.

Rubén that the Spanish footballer is very regarded in Bolivia and encourage anyone to try in this league. Although being respected and being a leader one would have to win being humble, hardworking, by example. His experience in Bolivia highlights being very rich, knowing another culture, different places, different people and the ability to play another championship that has nothing to do with the Spanish.
On the Bolivian league there are some delays in certain equipment as to collecting the bills, but it has nothing to do with what happens now in Spain. In his team, Universitario de Sucre, are serving very well and is grateful to be a serious club.

Match  in Bolivia
Currently , he does not think back to Spain and want to end up playing in Argentina or Brazilian league, but you never know. It is focused on making the best paper possible in the Copa Libertadores and time will decidemore.

And finally, we close with a phrase spoken by Ruben, and in which particular I can very agree "Those who say that football it is easy to know nothing of life. Football is a reflection of life ". 

And a video with some of his hightlights.

The Belgium Football Team has a long history with multiple sporting achievements, at Euro 1972 he achieved a third position, and in 1980 didn’t win the final against the Italian team so they had to accept their second place. Since 2004 it suffered a drawback in quality among the players and the technical’s level so it didn’t get selected for any European and World Championship except in the World Cup Brazil in 2014. In this championship they achieved a very good classification getting to the quarter finals.

At the personal level, the Belgian team has players that have become important. Some of them are Jan Ceulemans, Timmy Simons and Eric Greets, with more than 90 games each with the selection and Paul van Himst as top scorer with 81 goals.

Currently this selection is among the best in Europe with an excellent team . This can be seen in its latest call for a great competition, as it was the World Cup Brazil 2014. As a coach, Marc Wilmots. From 2009-2012 he was the technical assistant of the team but since 2012 he has been training the Belgian team combining it as the head coach. in goal highlights the presence of Thibaut Courtois, Chelsea goalkeeper CF, players like Thomas Vermaelen, Vincent Kompany and Daniel Van Buyten were in charge of defending the Belgian goal. In the midfield there are two players, Eden Hazard, excellent player of Chelsea FC and Adnan Januzaj, fast and agile player who plays for Manchester United. In front stands the young striker, 21, Romelu Lukaku.

This team has great potential and great young players struggling to achieve their dream of playing in the absolute selection, so that in the future they will fight to achieve great victories in bigger competitions.
