The iconic captain is celebrating yet another milestone in his career after becoming the player with the highest number of international triumphs, surpassing Lilian Thuram

Real Madrid goalkeeper Iker Casillas has set a new record in international football following Spain's 4-1 victory over South Korea in a friendly match.

In what was his 130th appearance for Spain, Casillas won his 95th match for the national team, breaking the record for the highest number of international victories that had been set by France's Lilian Thuram and matched by Egypt's Ahmed Hassan.

The 31-year-old custodian was introduced in the second half and did not concede a goal, while watching Alvaro Negredo score La Roja's fourth goal of the night.

Casillas, who also recorded his 74th clean sheet with the national side, has also become the fourth-highest-capped goalkeeper in football, behind Saudi Arabia's Mohamed Al-Deayea (178), Sweden's Thomas Ravelli (143) and South Korea's Lee Won-Jae (132).
