Pepe Reina broke a few records by starting for Bayern Munich today

It must be easy being the back-up goalkeeper to Manual Neuer.

Well, easy in the sense that you wouldn't have a lot to do because you're going to be spending all of your time sitting on the substitutes' bench.

Today though, Pepe Reina has been called into action, making his Bundesliga debut for Bayern Munich just seven months after signing for the team from Liverpool, and in the process breaking a few interesting records.

Reina is the first Spaniard and first goalkeeper to play in Europe's four big leagues, England, Italy, Spain and Germany.

The Spaniard joins other legends of the game who achieved the feat, such as er, Obafemi Martins, Christian Poulson and Abel Xavier.

He is, however, the first World Cup winner to play in the four leagues, but, with Neuer only being rested today, it could potentially be his first and only league appearance for Bayern.
