Spain is currently the best team in football and is in the middle of their Golden Age.

The current team is experiencing historic success which also coincides with Barcelona being one of the most dominant club teams ever.

While the differences in tactics, attacking ability and even formation are very different, it is fair to say that La Roja is currently thriving largely on the strength of Spain's two greatest clubs—Barcelona and Real Madrid.

What some fail to realize is just how much world class talent exists at nearly every position beyond those two clubs.

This article will look at just that. Here I list a Spanish starting XI without using any players from La Liga's two best teams.
