Tiki Taka - Tee or Sweat

Tiki Taka. If Spaniards can claim anything, it’s excellent taste in footballers. The intricate passing ability of that mid-2000s Spain team, widely known as ‘tiki-taka’, is unrivalled this century and probably the only style of football that has come close to challenging Cruyff’s Dutch total football generation of the 70’s. Nurturing a possession based game, the Spanish national team dominated the continent and then the world from 2008-2012, picking up three major trophies.

Tiki-taka is a systemic approach to the game, founded upon team unity and a solid understanding in finding pockets of space across the pitch. Although generally renowned as an elegant and intelligent style of play, ‘La Furia Roja’ (Red Fury) were ruthless in victory for an extended period of time, which holds them in high regard to this day. Take a dose of Xabi Alonso, add a hint of Iniesta and Xavi and the recipe is complete.
