Madridista pulls level with Zubizarreta as the goalkeeper with the most international clean sheets
Iker Casillas equaled Andoni Zubizarreta's mark of 56 international clean sheets last Saturday against Belgium. The Madridista keeper can break the record on Wednesday against Estonia.
Iker Casillas' clean sheet performance in Spain's 5-0 victory against Belgium pulled the Madridista keeper level with Andoni Zubizarreta's record of 56 shutouts with La Roja. Casillas has a chance to set the new bar at 57 during Wednesday's match against Estonia. 

Of note, Casillas has only 97 caps, while Zubizarreta reached 126 during his career. The next milestone for Casillas is his 100th cap, which only Raul Gonzalez and the aforementioned Andoni Zubizarreta have managed to reach and surpass.
