Not only is the Spain national football team currently situated at the very top of FIFA's world rankings, but the team is also the reigning world champion from the last time the World Cup was held. Those two factors will earn Spain plentiful good will, a fact represented well by how products like the Spain 2014 FIFA World Cup home shirt have been flying off the virtual shelves of the Soccer Box online store.

The home Spain soccer jersey is a fan favorite in the world of football, a dark red Adidas shirt with rustic gold lettering. The shirt also includes an embroidered rendering of the Spain team's meticulously ornate crest, and is made of ClimaCool technology that keeps players and fans comfortable and temperate regardless of the conditions.

Spain Shoots for Back-to-Back World Cup Victories

Despite the fact that the Spain national football team only has a single World Cup title under its belt (for the 2010 tournament in South Africa), the team's current position as a world favorite and overall frontrunner has given it the chance to join a rare group in World Cup history: that of consecutive winners.

Indeed, when fans take the stands this June and July, wearing the Spain 2014 FIFA World Cup home shirt, they will be rooting for a result that has only happened on two other occasions in history. Since World Cup events take place only once every four years, it is rare that one team can maintain the momentum, depth, and skill necessary to win two titles in a row.

That is not to say that consecutive World Cup victories are impossible, though, or that fans wearing the Spain soccer jersey are hoping for something that is completely unlikely. On the contrary, in the 1934 and 1938 World Cups, the Italy national football team pulled off an amazing hat trick to become the first team ever to win back-to-back titles. Brazil, this year's home team, duplicated the feat between the 1958 and 1962 events.

Since the early 1960s, however, no team has managed to attain consecutive victories at the World Cup. Brazil, which leads the world with five overall World Cup titles, nearly notched a second back-to-back run in the mid-to-late 1990s, winning the tournament in 1994 and making it to the finals in 1998. However, a loss to host team France ultimately cost Brazil that extra piece of glory.

Similarly, Argentina almost became the third team ever to achieve back-to-back World Cup triumphs after winning the 1986 tournament. Instead, Argentina lost in the 1990 World Cup finals to Germany, which itself landed a milestone by becoming only the third team to win more than two World Cup titles (the others being Italy and Brazil).

World Cup Chances

Despite how difficult it is to win World Cup titles in a consecutive fashion, the fans of the Spain team are not giving up hope. With a number one FIFA ranking, Spain is sitting pretty with a medium-difficulty group stage draw and plenty of "home team" football matches.

Spain has been drawn into Group B, where it will face Chile and Australia, as well as play a rematch against 2010 World Cup runners-up, The Netherlands. None of the three teams are ranked in the top 10 by FIFA, and Spain will have the home team position in two of the three matches (against The Netherlands and Australia, respectively). Needless to say, fans will want to iron out their Spain 2014 FIFA World Cup home shirt, because the jersey will be getting plenty of play time in this summer's group stage.
