Raúl was born in the San Cristóbal de los Ángeles neighborhood of Madrid where he played for the local youth team before moving to the Atlético Madrid youth team.
Considered one of the most important players in the history of Real Madrid, Raúl is regarded to be one of the greatest Spanish players of all time.He spent 16 years of his career playing for Real Madrid and is the club's second all-time top goalscorer with 323 goals. Raúl is also the most capped player in the history of the club with 741 appearances, ahead of Sanchís. With los Blancos, he won six La Liga titles, three UEFA Champions League titles, scoring in two finals, four Supercopa de España titles, one UEFA Super Cup and two Intercontinental Cup. He is the third highest goalscorer in Champions League history, behind Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, and the fifth most capped player. In 2003, he was appointed captain of the team and retained that position until his departure from the club in 2010.
In La Liga competitions, Raúl is the fifth highest goal scorer in the history of the tournament with 228 goals, behind Lionel Messi, Telmo Zarra and fellow Real Madrid legends Hugo Sánchez and Cristiano Ronaldo. He is also the highest Spanish scorer in European leagues, with 256 goals, scoring 228 goals in La Liga and 28 goals in the Bundesliga. Moreover, he is the second most capped player in the history of the Spanish competition, with 550 games played, just behind Andoni Zubizarreta (622 games). Leaving Real Madrid in 2010 and signing for Schalke 04, he scored the 400th goal of his career in February 2012. He signed with the Qatari team Al Sadd in 2012. He won the Qatar Stars League in his first season and he reached 1,000 games played in his career.Buy cheap fifa coins and enjoy game.
He scored a then-record 44 goals in 102 appearances for la Roja, appearing in three FIFA World Cups and two European championships. Raúl took over the captaincy of the side in 2002 and held it until 2006, the year in which he played his last international match for Spain.
Raúl resisted retirement for one more week, rebelling as he had always done. There seemed to be 29 minutes left of his 21-year professional career when he scored the winner against Fort Lauderdale Strikers in Brooklyn last Sunday and ensured there would be another 90 minutes at least. The goal, the 448th of his career, took the New York Cosmos into Sunday’s NASL final, his final. There is no delaying the end any more, but the curtain could fall with him holding a trophy. It would be the 22nd of his career.
The World Cup and the European Championship are not among them; Raúl left as this generation was arriving. Whether he had to was another matter: his departure from the national team in the run up to Euro 2008 became a question of state and a horribly divisive one, but Spain won three trophies in a row, a unique feat in world football. David Villa took his No7 shirt and his record too: with 44 goals Raúl González Blanco is now the country’s second all-time top scorer.

“Raúl is synonymous with Madrid: the face of the club for the last 25 years,If you wrote a list of Raúl’s qualities, it would be a list of the values of Real Madrid. He is the Di Stéfano of our time. He is the people, the incarnation of Madridismo. Even if he did start off playing for Atlético Madrid.
Atlético’s then president, Jesús Gil, decided that there was no point in having a youth team, so Raúl headed to Ciudad Deportiva, up at the northern end of the Paseo de la Castellana. He was 17 when he met Valdano, who had arrived from Tenerife, and after whom his first son is named. Valdano gave him his debut – although the way he puts it, Raúl gave himself his debut. It was ever thus.
Raúl had started the season in the C team, very briefly played for the B team and, with Emilio Butragueño coming to the end and Alfonso Pérez injured, Valdano was thinking of playing him in the first team. If Valdano admitted that he had doubts, Raúl had none. “If you want to win, play me,” he replied. “If not, put someone else in.” There was something in the response that summed him up.
On the bus to the match, he was asleep, as if it just didn’t matter. It was 29 October 1994, week nine of the season, and the truth is that he was a disaster. Ten seconds into his debut, he scuffed a one-on-one; then he went around the goalkeeper and put his shot over; next came a shot straight at the goalkeeper, clean through. On and on it went, miss after miss. Real lost 3-2. But this was not the end. The coaching staff expected to find a kid in tears, destroyed, but they could not have been more wrong.
Raúl was skillful, his first touch impeccable and his finishing fast, the ball often struck earlier than anyone imagined. But his success was not really about natural talent. It was more about being astute, intelligent, focused; about recognising and minimising his flaws. He was bandy-legged, hunched, not especially fast. In Fernando Hierro’s words, “he was not a 10 out of 10 in anything but he was an eight-and-a-half in everything”.
He was supremely competitive, his conviction unshakeable. Más talante que talento, they say: more temperament than talent. Which is not to say that there was no talent, but this was no gifted child.
Valdano defined him like this: “Quantity above quality, absolute commitment and endeavour above all else. Utter professionalism. Every. Single. Day. Of. His. Life.”
“Conviction,” is the word Cappa most returns to; conviction no matter what. He had seen it from the start.Buy fifa 16 coins and build the best team to challenge players around the world.
