all set for Colombia!
The RFEF reports – complete with pictures – that our boys had a light training session this morning, taking advantage of the sunny weather and nice temperatures in Madrid.
Pepe looks more like he’s trying to get a tan and some good gossip in than stretch, no? Maybe Andrés should have joined him. I can’t believe the A team separated, and Fernando Llorente looks very comfortable there.
Some took the stretching more seriously than the others.
The entire team stretched and did some light exercises. The rest of the day looks like this: lunch, siesta until 19h, VDB’s technical chat at 19h, get on the bus to go to the Bernabéu, start playing at 21:30h.
Remember how some components of the U-17 team joined the older boys yesterday? Well Iker had already gotten to know some of these boys, after turning up for their training session yesterday morning. Gerard Deulofeu (Barcelona) said, “I’m proud that the captain of the Spanish national team was with us, that he came with such humility and such a down to earth character… we hope this will occur again.” Meanwhile, Raúl de Tomás (Real Madrid) remarked, “it’s an honor for us that one of the best players in the world came to see us, it’s a nice gesture.” Both boys also thanked the senior team for their support in the last Euro in Liechtenstein: “we would like to thank them once again for coming down onto the field to see us. It’s great that the best players came down to say hi to the younger ones.”
