He played several friendly matches with the Spanish team between 1924 (Spain 0- Belgium 5) (5) and 1929 (Barcelona International Tournament for Universal Exposition: Spain 3- France 0, Spain 3- Austria 0 and Spain 0- Germany 1) (6).He gave up playing this sport regularly in 1925 (although he returned for some exhibitions and for the important Barcelona International Tournament in 1929) due to knee problems and lack of time to take part in so many sports and a working life.Some journalists claimed his part in the national team but it was never proved. The RCD Español historian Juan Segura Palomares told us in 1974: “As a footballer he is extraordinary.If he never wore the national team shirt it was due to his nationality which he never surrendered despite his love for Spain”.As right defender alongside the legendary international goalkeeper Ricardo Zamora and left defender Conrad Portas they formed one of the best defences of the era.Among their titles there were two Catalonian championships and the King’s Cup in 1929 (Español 2- Real Madrid 1).(2) -Tennis: he joined the small and elite Sportiva Pompeya Club where he quickly became one of the best players, especially in doubles, pairing up with Antonio Juanico.In 19 they were champions of Catalonia and Spain and logically (apart from the doubts regarding his nationality) they were selected for the Paris Olympic Games.
With Flaquer he survived two rounds, beating the Portuguese pair Casanovas and Castro-Pereira by w.o.As a typical sportsman of the era he practiced several sports, standing out as a boxer and above all as a tennis player, winning the first Central American championship for El Salvador against Guatemala in 1920.He also took to other sports such as baseball and football, as well as hunting and chess.and the Japanese Fukuda and Honda 6-2, 6-3, 6-3, losing in the 3rd round to the South Africans Condon and Richardson 6-2, 6-3, 6-1 and receiving harsh criticism from the Spanish press.
In the mixed doubles with Rosa Torras (first Spanish woman in the Games together with Lilí Álvarez) they were defeated in the first round by Italians Umberto de Morpungo and Giulia Ferelli 6-3, 10-8.
We must specify that (with the exception of the 1928/9 season when he accepted a professional contract from RCD Español because of financial difficulties) Saprissa was always an amateur and defended that romantic concept of the sport.
