Alvaro Arbeloa (PA)
Excellent defensive skill, especially in one-on-one situations, makes Alvaro Arbeloa an excellent addition to Vicente del Bosque’s side.  

Born in Salamanca, Arbeloa debuted for La Roja in 2008 against Italy while he was a player at Liverpool. Arbeloa has never missed a cap since and was an integral member of his side in the Euro 2008 tournament.  

Able to play in both the right and left-back positions, Arbeloa, currently at Real Madrid, is a versatile defender who will provide excellent alternatives to Joan Capdevila or Sergio Ramos in South Africa.

Did You Know?

Arbeloa was capped for the first time by Luis Aragones, but in the moments prior to the match suffered an injury that forced him to delay his debut.
