In 1998, Xabi Alonso was an unknown quantity. He was a mere whippersnapper – albeit a very talented, handsome whippersnapper – in the Real Sociedad academy. We know that because we saw it on Wikipedia.

As we are all made painfully aware every time England play like shit at a World Cup, Spanish football takes a month-long break each mid-winter.
