Trying To Catch Up: Portugal

31 May

Portugal is still at their training camp in Obidos getting ready for their friendly on Saturday versus Turkey. As ever, it’s 24/7 Cris pix.

Wake up, Crispy!

…or, you know, go back to sleep.

Here’s something neat that I read about while photo hunting. The Oh Art Project, a group dedicated to the reintegration of former prisoners, decided to paint a grafitti mural with all 23 players of the national team plus the coach in Obidos. Here are some shots of them at work. The artists’ names are in each caption.

Fabio Romao aka Rot MC

Luis Furtado aka Jamaica MDP

Fabio Romao aka Rot MC and Adao Castelo

Luis Furtado aka Jamaica MDP and Adao Castelo

Luis Furtado aka Jamaica MDP and Odeley Pinho aka Technic

Luis Furtado aka Jamaica MDP

Luis Furtado aka Jamaica MDP (L) and Fabio Romao aka Rot MC

Odeley Pinho aka Technic, Luis Furtado aka Jamaica MDP, Nelson Cardoso aka Rasta, Fabio Romao aka Rot MC and Adao Castelo

So cool, isn’t it? I love this idea and it’s something that the whole community can enjoy. I wonder if they are going to have to paint all of Raul Meireles’ tattoos on? That’s going to take awhile!

      Welcome, Maisa! Thanks for your kind words. All are welcome here – there are even lots of Barca fans who hang with us. :-) It’s all cool. We all love the game first, right? The Atleti tag will take you back to any derbi madrileno posts from the past year and change.
