fun at La Bombonera
(Is the school dance about to start?)
I hesitate to call it “training” since the boys seemed to be really enjoy themselves yesterday! And ok, I’ve only chosen pictures of them clowning around instead of training, but the training pictures were boring! In the ones I’ve chosen, we get to see once again how much fun the team has together, how well they get along, and of course, their smiles! El País characterized the session as “touristic training,” and even the RFEF described them like this: “parecían un grupo de amigos en el patio del colegio” (they seemed to be a group of friends out on the patio of the high school). And, part of the training session consisted of them chasing each other around, as well as making groups of two, three, four.
The Spanish national team trained at La Bombonera, home of Boca Juniors, yesterday afternoon. Iker Casillas received the most applause when he appeared, although the crowd gathered at the stadium welcomed each player with cheers. This was the first time in 32 years that the Spanish national team had stepped foot in Argentina – the last time was the 1978 World Cup.
I also love this one. Some seem to have more of a sense of balance than others.
And lastly, the president of Boca Juniors presented Iker, VDB and the RFEF delegates with a Boca shirt. The shirt had the number “10” on the back and said “champions of the world.” The Spanish delegation gave to Boca a plaque commemorating the visit of the Spanish national team to La Bombonera, as well as a shirt signed by all of the players.
Other (serious) pictures can be found over at the RFEF site or daylife!
