Santiago Cazorla González, born 13 December 1984 in Asturias, earned his first Spanish cap in 2008. Senior side boss Luis Aragonés included him in his UEFA Euro 2008 squad. After making his debut on 31 May 2008 in a 2–1 friendly win over Peru, Cazorla made substitute appearances in the tournament's group stage matches against Russia, Sweden and Greece, also coming from the bench in the quarterfinals against Italy, converting his penalty in the ensuing shootout which Spain won.

The Asturias-born player represented Spain at Euro 2008 and Euro 2012, winning both tournaments. Cazorla has amassed 77 caps for Spain and scored 14 goals. After a domestic season beset by injury, Cazorla missesd out in a place in the Spain squad for the World Cup held in South Africa.

Cazorla joined the Gunners on a long-term contract in 2012 becoming an impressive addition to Arsenal's squad.
