I don’t have time to make a proper ICYMI post, as this game occurred in the middle of Semana Santa, so you’ll have to do with this.
Pedro said after the game that he had no idea how the ball went in, but the important thing is that it went in!
Keep in mind somos España as we take on France at 21h tonight, with a spot in the 2014 World Cup at stake. Luckily for us, these two guys are scheduled to play.
Spain will debut a completely red kit (shirt, shorts, socks) for the game! Let’s go La Roja!
Spain took on Uruguay in a friendly in Doha, Qatar on Feb. 6, winning 3-1 behind two goals from Pedro and one from Cesc. This game was also Carles Puyol’s 100th, making him the seventh Spaniard to reach that magic number. As for Vicente del Bosque, he tied Ladislao Kubala as the coach with the most number of games under his belt, 68, since taking charge four and a half years ago.
We may have taken a step backwards towards our medal aspirations with the loss to Japan on Thursday, but I have complete confidence that our boys will go into Sunday’s game with even more hunger, desire and determination. Meanwhile, on Friday, the entire Spanish delegation was looking quite sharp (surprising given the other clothes that Bosco designed for us, which we’ve already seen) at the opening ceremony. I like the hat, the belt and the shoes.
Even though this was our third trophy in four years, I’ll never get tired of the sight of Iker Casillas lifting a beautiful cup up.

Another historical date for La Roja. Spain made history by becoming the first national team to win two consecutive Eurocopas, with a World Cup sandwiched in between, when it beat Italy 4-0 (in the highest scoring final in history) to close out the 2012 edition of the Eurocopa.

ELEVEN. The first thing Cesc did after scoring the decisive penalty was run over to Iker and jump into his arms. It was reminiscent of David Villa four years ago, no? Although this time around no one ended up on the ground with their shirts off, it was still a pretty fantastic celebration.

We are through to the final! It took more than two hours and quite a few heart pounding moments, but Spain will be playing in the final of the 2012 Eurocopa against Italy.
ONE. Prior to the game, we had the players all listening to music through huge headphones (especially Fernando Llorente), texting or both simultaneously. Meanwhile, Xabi had to have his coffee and Pepe his beer.
