Alvaro Arbeloa Coca is a Spain international football player who currently features for Spanish and European giants Real Madrid. He is a right-back and is one of the best players in Europe. Arbeloa won the Euro 2008, 2010 World Cup and Euro 2012 with La Furia Roja.
Arbeloa grew up at the Real Madrid cantera but managed just two first-team appearances before being signed by Spanish side Deportivo la Coruna in 2006. After an impressive tenure for Depor, was signed by Liverpool for 2.5 million pounds and was a regular for the Reds in the 2007-2008 season.
Arbeloa’s impressive performance at Anfield earned him a move to Real Madrid in the summer of 2009, and he has proved himself to be a star at the Santiago Bernabeu since then, winning the Copa del Rey in 2011 and La Liga in 2011-12.
Arbeloa was a member of the Spain squad that won the Euro 2008. He also won the 2010 World Cup finals with his nation and Euro 2012.
