The huge changes in the style and fortunes of modern Spanish football provides clear evidence of how a nation's character can evolve over generations. Go back thirty years from Spain's breakthrough European Championship success of 2008 and you'll quickly appreciate what a different beast their 1978 World Cup squad was. Rough, tough and uncompromising with flair at a premium; even its more gifted creative individuals like Real Madrid winger Juanito came with a wild side. That 1978 Argentina campaign was as disappointing as most of Spain's other big tournament appearances in the second half of the twentieth century. On this occasion a dull scoreless draw with Brazil and narrow victory over Sweden wasn't enough to see them make it out of the group stage.
