About This Quiz

With the ratings success of the 2018 World Cup across the globe, it's clear that soccer has never been more popular. Truly, it's a marvelous sport, and that's not just because it has a place for you even if your only real skill is throwing yourself on the ground in the vicinity of another person and then screaming and grabbing your knee while falsely claiming that they kicked you (folks who do this: you know who you are!). 

No, soccer is also one of the most democratic of sports. If you have $9.99 to spend on a ball, and an open space to play in, you can play. You don't need to be good with your hands - in fact, most positions barely even require you to have working hands. You don't need to be especially fast or talented. As long as you're up for it and willing to mark another player, you can be valuable to your team.

That means an awful lot of people love soccer, and no group more so than Europeans, especially the British, Italians, and Spanish. These are the top three leagues on the planet, attracting players who generally play for their countries when the World Cup rolls around. The Spanish league is our focus today: La Liga, where some of the world's most talented footballers (as they call themselves) can be seen making magic. Which of its teams would suit you?
