Why is the Spanish National Team nicknamed ¨La Roja"?

10/06/2015 12:48


Hi football players!

The origin of La Roja was started by charismatic coach Luis Aragonés, who named this way when he was the trainer, without any political meaning, simply because of the color of the shirt.

Most of the great national teams have a nickname, a way to distinguish themselves from the rest. For example, Uruguay is the "celeste", Italy is the "azzurra", France, "les bleus"... and not naming colors are Germany, the "mannschaft", England, the "three lions", and so on.

However, Spain is not the only national team to be nicknamed this way. Chile, who shares shirt color with Spain, wants exclusive rights to the nickname La Roja. But for now, Spain "wins" and the nickname is a success among its fans.

What's your team's nickname in Korner 5, players?

Let us know in the official forums and we'll see whose is the most original and creative!

See you on the pitch,

The Korner 5 Team
