Spain 1980 player shirt by Adidas believed to have been match worn by Arconada in the friendly match against Holland played at Balaidos, Vigo on the 23rd January 1980.
The last time that Spain had hosted Holland they had won 5-1 back in 1957.
They managed another victory here but even though this time the scoreline was only 1-0 it was more impressive given that the Dutch had been runners-up at the 1978 World Cup. Although the conditions left a lot to be desired and the pitch resembled a mud bath by full-time. Substitute Dani scored the only goal of the game from the penalty spot in the 80th minute. Arconada had established himself as his country's #1 keeper after making his debut in '77 and 'El Pulpo' went on to go to 4 major international tournaments winning 68 caps while at club level spending his entire career with Real Sociedad and putting in performances worthy of 3 Ricardo Zamora Trophy's as Real won back-to-back La Liga titles.
