Jesús Navas – El País Q&A
Today it’s the turn of Jesús Navas and his gorgeous eyes to answer the questions from El País. Is he as timid as he appears to be? Let’s find out.
Note: we’re still waiting for the newspaper to interview Iker, Piqué, Cesc, Xavi, Xabi, Sergio, Javi and Pepe. Like I said earlier, Spain cannot get themselves kicked out of the World Cup before some of these guys are interviewed!
Back to Jesús:
