in case you missed it – Portugal vs. Spain
I decided to make this post because there were a lot of great moments in the game, player-wise, irrespective of the final result. After all, no matter how the game ends, our players will still be the adorable, fun and emotional chicos that we love. So, there will be no game talk on this post, just compliments and ogling. If you want to talk about the game, you can comment on some of the previous posts.
The Real Madrid version of this post can be found here.
One. Our beautiful players during the national anthem. I love how the camera has to descend quite steeply when it pans from Busquets to Xavi.
Two. Here is the patch on David Silva’s sleeve supporting the Iberian World Cup candidacy bid.
Three. Everyone has an opinion. I love how all the players rush up to the referee, with their arms pointing to the right, and of course Pepe. Remember how Iker said that Pepe was on the road to becoming a coach? I can totally see it here.
Four. Llorente and Albiol have bad posture, while Santi and Cesc joked around. It looks like Santi’s feet don’t even reach the ground. And why was Álvaro playing with his boot?
Poor Víctor and Pedro, they looked quite cold there on the bench. As does Puyol – why didn’t he put on his jacket? And Javi has joined Llorente and Albiol in slumping. Who can blame him, the game was a goner at that point.
I always love seeing shots of the bench during the game, and especially a bench as hot as this one.
Five. If this doesn’t make you feel better, than you need help. Fernando Llorente in his tight, tight shirt.
Six. Footballers and their gestures/movements.
Seven. I love feisty Cesc. And you know how I always talk about Xabi posing? Cesc is great at it too! Look at how he’s perfected the hand on the hip pose!
Eight. Here’s where the ogling begins, if you haven’t already started.
Nine. Somehow, the socks didn’t seem to stay up, because almost everyone spent some time pulling them up. Well, anything that makes the players bend over is good…
Ten. I see David Villa is a great teacher.
Eleven. And you know how we always talk about how classy and perfect Xabi is? Here are some moments that seem to prove us wrong, but who cares?
Twelve. The bottom line: our team is allowed to lose once in a while, especially in an unimportant game.
