The sport of football in the country of Andorra is run by the Andorran Football Federation.[1] The federation administers the Andorran national football team, as well as the Andorran First Division. The national team has existed since 1996. So far they have recorded three victories, these were against Belarus, Albania, and Republic of Macedonia, all of which were at home. They are known as one of the most penalized teams in Europe, having received more red & yellow cards in the WC 2006 Qualifiers than any other team. The most famous Andorran player is probably Albert Celades who has played for both FC Barcelona and Real Madrid. The midfielder never made an appearance for the Andorran squad however he did make it to the Spanish national team.[citation needed]. FC Andorra is the only Andorran team to play in the Spanish football league system instead of the domestic league.
