21 years ago, on 12 September, 1999, the best goalkeeper in the club's history played his first official match for Real Madrid. Iker Casillas arrived at the club when he was nine years old and made his debut at the age of 18 at the San Mamés stadium against Athletic Club in a match that ended 2-2.
In Bilbao, Casillas played the first of his 725 games for Real Madrid - the club's second all-time highest number of appearances, only behind Raúl (741). His decisive saves are fondly remembered, such as those in final for la Novena against Bayer Leverkusen, in addition to the trophies he lifted in his years as team captain.

Casillas won 19 trophies as a Madrid player: three Champions Leagues, three Club World Cups, two European Super Cups, five league titles, two Copa del Rey cups and four Spanish Super Cups. In addition, with the Spanish national team he lifted the 2010 World Cup and was also awarded the Golden Glove during the same tournament, as well as the 2008 and 2012 European Cups.
