is there any La Roja team that isn’t adorable?
To reward our little starlets for beating Belgium twice, destroying Serbia 4-0 and qualifying for the semifinals, the U-19 team got their first day of rest, which included a visit to the hotel pool and pizza, plus typical Romanian food! Now I usually only write about the senior national team due to a lack of free time (all the U-21 coverage earlier this summer was because a certain Javi Martínez (!!!) was on the team) but since this U-19 team includes one of my favorite players – Álvaro Borja Morata Martín – and these are shirtless pool pictures, I had to write about it.
Álex must be as allergic to the sun as Iker Casillas.
Luckily for all of us, the RFEF decided to provide high quality photos of this pool session, so enjoy.
They’re adorable, aren’t they?
I can’t believe how many of them fit in that little jacuzzi.
ÁBMM scored a hat trick in the game against Serbia, and got the game ball, which all his teammates signed. Here he is after the game, and again on Sunday with that ball. By the way, check out the little celebration dance for Juanmi’s goal in that game – it looks like we have the U-19 version of Thiago and Iker Muniain! I’d love to see the senior team dance as well, but I don’t think it will ever be appropriate…
Spain’s next match is on Tuesday against Turkey. The outcome will determine their seeding for the semifinals.
