La Liga fields and has produced some of the best talent in the world.

When looking at my previous teams in the Spanish Regional Starting XI series, readers were able to see how much depth there is in Spain—especially at midfield.

My reasoning behind this series was to show fans who do not typically follow La Liga that some of the world's best talent plays or started in Spain.

However, Ariff Zulkifli made me realize something. If I am going to celebrate La Liga and it players, it would be an injustice to leave out its best non-Spanish players.

So I decided to make this one final addition to the series.

What follows is the best starting XI of Spain's foreign players.

Note: I did not include foreign nationals who play for the Spanish national team—such as Thiago Alcantara.

Also, I limited it to three players from any one club. I did not want to let Los Galacticos benefit from preferring non-Spanish players.
