training at El Monumental
The training session yesterday at El Monumental looked more like a training session and less like a school excursion, but there were still plenty of good moments! These included the captain and the coach talking, and Sergio Ramos. Really, sometimes, the only thing you need for a good moment is a hot footballer, with the flowing hair an added bonus.
Following the training session, the team made their way to the presidential palace, where Argentine president Cristina Fernández de Kirchner received them. She received a signed shirt and a commemorative plaque, and they got handshakes. While the players were waiting around, they reverted back to their schoolboy alter egos, with their matching uniforms and the joking around (quietly).
Question: who was the third Barcelona forward in the World Cup? The president’s son had told her to congratulate VDB for using the “three Barcelona forwards” in the World Cup. I only count 1.5 Barcelona forwards in South Africa, since to me David Villa was at the World Cup due to his stellar performances with Valencia.
