We may have taken a step backwards towards our medal aspirations with the loss to Japan on Thursday, but I have complete confidence that our boys will go into Sunday’s game with even more hunger, desire and determination. Meanwhile, on Friday, the entire Spanish delegation was looking quite sharp (surprising given the other clothes that Bosco designed for us, which we’ve already seen) at the opening ceremony. I like the hat, the belt and the shoes.
Spain takes on
Benji, Oliver and Japan in its Olympics opener this afternoon at Hampden Park (15:45h Spain time, 14:45h local time). The starting line-up is made up of David de Gea, Martín Montoya, Álvaro Domínguez, Iñigo Martínez, Jordi Alba, Javi Martínez, Koke, Isco, Juan Mata, Rodrigo and Adrián.
London, here we come! Or rather Glasgow, since that will be Spain’s first stop in these Olympic Games, as La Rojita will take on Japan on July 26 at Hampden Park in its first game of the Games.
I hope you’re not tired of winning yet, because we have just added another trophy to our collection! In this post: La Rojita’s grand achievement, plus the latest on the Olympic team and all the leftovers from La Roja following the conclusion of its Eurocopa.
May 30 and May 31, 2012.
Spain won the second of the three friendlies it has scheduled as warm-ups to the Eurocopa on Wednesday, beating old foe South Korea 4-1 in Bern. How do you think La Roja played, and what are your thoughts on how they’re looking so far?
In terms of physical appearance, they are looking fantastic!
May 26, 2012 / Day 6 – Spain vs. Serbia, friendly, 2-0.
Well, that wasn’t the most exciting game, and I’m hoping it’s because the players are saving their best for the actual tournament, no? Although it’s hard for Iker, Juanfran and David Silva to be more adorable than they were in these moments…
Hopefully Sergio got a kiss in as well!
It’s really been forever since my last post, not counting the one yesterday about the Eurocopa preliminary list. I’m sorry I haven’t had time to post, but I had been collecting bits and pieces from here and there over the last several months in anticipation of a post that I didn’t get around to, until today. Will you accept Xabi Alonso modeling for Hugo Boss Fragrances as an apology?
More Xabi here. By the way, my second post of this blog two years ago (this one is post #912!) was dedicated to Xabi and Hugo Boss (plus Cesc and David Villa). Anyway, more perfect people inside the post…
