Iker Casillas vs Diego Costa


Casillas receives the Grand Cross of the Royal Order of Sports Merit 
Iker Casillas was awarded with Grand Cross of the Royal Order of Sports Merit (Gran Cruz de la Real Orden del Mérito Deportivo) during a ceremony held in the Palace of Moncloa. The Spanish Prime Minister, Mariano Rajoy, presented him with Spain’s highest sporting honour.

“I would like to thank the Spanish government for presenting me with this medal. I’m not sure I deserve it, but I’m filled me with happiness. I dedicate this decoration to the people who have helped me over the course of my career, but in particular my wife, Sara, and my son Martín. I hope that when my playing career comes to an end I’m not only remembered for my sporting achievements, but also for helping and giving back to society everything I’ve been given” – Iker Casillas (November 10, 2015)


What a save of Iker during the match between Benfica-FC Porto!
