Watch: Spanish Third Division Team Go Apeshit After Being Drawn Against Real Madrid In Copa Del Rey

Footage of third division Spanish footballers celebrating being drawn against Real Madrid in the Copa del Rey shows what it feels like for dreams to come true.

The humble footballers of Spanish third division club Cultural Leonesa awaited with bated breath the result of the Copa del Rey 'round of 32' draw. After three hard-fought victories in the opening rounds they arrived into the draw with the hope of drawing one of the big clubs, of playing against Messi or Ronaldo and having something truly special to take away from their football careers.

Most football careers lack glamour or massive wealth and the beauty of cup competitions like the Copa del Rey and the FA Cup in England offer up the chance for these players to rub shoulders with those who are worshipped worldwide.

Brilliantly someone decided it would be a good idea to film the Cultural Leonesa players just in case they were lucky enough to be drawn against a big gun. And when Real Madrid's name came out of the hat the reaction from the team was suitably ecstatic.

It is sure to be a day that these players will cherish for the rest of their lives.

There'll be an unholy battle for Ronaldo's shirt after the game, though.
