once upon a time…

With babies on the mind this weekend (thanks to a certain Cristiano Ronaldo), here are some pictures of our internationals in their younger days via Marca.

Of course Sergio Ramos would be wearing light blue (denim?) shorts and have matching sneakers.  I almost didn’t recognize Pepe Reina (and it’s not just the hair), and Marchena is absolutely adorable!  Is he holding the plastic ball he was talking about here?  Little Busi is also cute!  I also love Xabi and David Villa’s bowl haircuts!  (David’s head looks a bit like a palloza, without the pointy bit on top of course.)  And Fernando Torres looks EXACTLY the same as he does now, except the hair is darker, as does Geri, although his picture is more recent.  And check out little Xavi and little Cesc, already Barça’s captains at those early ages, while that’s probably the most tan Andrés has ever been.  And Iker’s smile makes me smile.

  9. oh -my-god!!!
    xavi is lovely!!! i dont know if i’m the only one but i started to think that xavi is one of the cutest and sympathic players in la roja! his interviews are always funny and smart, everyone thinks there is something special about him, he definitely feels the team spirit, doesnt try to be like a hero and try impossible shots like cristiano ronaldo does and it seems like his feet are still on the ground!! such a great player!!
    by the way does cristiano ronaldo really have a son?? whats the latest news??

    Reina, Villa, and Busquets I had trouble recognizing, but now that I think about it David Villa’s smile is the same. XXXDD And doesnt Torres still look like that?! Ahhhh he is the cutest, him and Pique and then Ramos and Xavi.
