a little wrap up post
I don’t have time to make a proper ICYMI post, as this game occurred in the middle of Semana Santa, so you’ll have to do with this.
Pedro said after the game that he had no idea how the ball went in, but the important thing is that it went in!
Anyway, this was Spain’s first win over France in France, and VDB said his players were “men” out there. Several of our boys had a fantastic game, including (but not limited to) Víctor Valdés, Xabi Alonso and Nacho Monreal. Now, qualification for the 2014 World Cup is once again on our backs. At present, Spain has 11 points and France 10 in Group I. Spain’s next games are on Sept. 6 vs. Finland in Helsinki, Oct. 11 vs. Belarus in Spain and Oct. 15 vs. Georgia in Spain.
Iker watched the game in the stands, protesting the non-calls, suffering with the rest of Spain and celebrating the goal.
And to conclude, Xabi being boss.
