The Spain national football team (Spanish: Selección de fútbol de España) represents Spain in international association football and is controlled by the Royal Spanish Football Federation, the governing body for football in Spain. The current head coach is Vicente del Bosque. The Spanish side is commonly referred to as La Roja ("The Red") or La Furia Roja ("The Red Fury").

The players of the Spain football team have celebrated their historic success in the 2012 European Championship with their followers in the Spanish capital city of Madrid.

Spain defeated Italy 4-0 in Sunday's final played in Kiev to make history by becoming the only team to defend their European title, while also winning the World Cup in between the two competitions.

The plane carrying the Spain team arrived at Madrid's Barajas Airport from Kiev just before 4 p.m. local time and the squad left for the Royal Palace of the Zarzuela just over an hour later.

King Juan Carlos of Spain congratulated the players and coach Vicente del Bosque one by one for their success, while Spain captain Iker Casillas gave the King a commemorative shirt.

The team then took an open-topped-bus to travel through the packed streets of the capital to the Plaza Cibeles in the center of Madrid.

The sheer volume of hundreds of thousands of supporters lining the streets meant the journey took much longer than expected, but nobody seemed to mind as everyone joined in the celebrations. Even the firemen, who used their hoses to help ensure that none of the supporters suffered too much from the heat.

The bus finally reached Cibeles, where thousands more fans were waiting. There the players were finally able to get off the bus and receive the applause they so richly deserve.

The highlight of the celebration was reserve goalkeeper Pepe Reina, who showed what an important member of the squad he is for helping keep morale high, with a magnificent and entertaining speech in which he introduced his companions, some of whom may have enjoyed a couple of drinks, to the fans.

Spain are the current reigning World and European champions, having won the 2010 World Cup and the Euro 2012 as well as the Euro 2008. They are the first European team to win two consecutive European championships, and the only international nation to have won three successive major international tournaments.

Mukesh Ambani, the fifth richest man in the world and head of the Mumbai based petrochemical giant Reliance Industries is estimated to be worth somewhere in the region of $43 billion. He is also the owner to-be of a 27-story skyscraper in downtown Mumbai that is to cost him colossal $2 billion! His wife Nita Ambani was staying in the Mandarin Oriental in New York and was so impressed with the interior Asian style decor that she wanted something similar for her to live in. 


What resulted from that is the world's largest and most expensive home ever. Every story in the Antilla's skyscraper home will be built to a different specification. The vast variation of materials to be used in its build has tremendously added to its overall cost. The meticulous planning that has gone into this architectural design is astounding and once the 27 -story tower is built it will certainly become a spectacular site for all eyes.

Updown Court, England - The most important private residence to be built in England since the 19th century ($150 million)


Updown Court is situated only 25 miles from London, and through a pair of large sophisticated iron gates, one can see a palatial construction of immense scale and beauty. The property, however, is best known for its price tag: more than 85 million British pounds (+$150 million U$, with 103 rooms, five swimming pools and 24-carat-gold leafing on the study's mosaic floor.

As well as 30 bedrooms the home would have 23 bathrooms with spectacular views over Lake Butler, about 20 miles from Orlando. The hand-built windows for the house cost more than £2m and other luxuries include a ballroom and a children's theatre.
