It’s always nice to start with the booty shots isn’t it? I think so. Well it’s crunch time for the last eight! Things are going to get tougher, quieter, & more serious as the tournament winds down. Spain will have a closed training tomorrow, BOO, and I don’t know how many other teams will decide to cut us off, because that is what they’re doing! Anywho, Spain & France got to doing their thang today and because the amount of both team’s photos were kind of light, you get a face off training post! Double the yums, ooh’s, aah’s, and woot woot’s.
Negredo is still trying out his goalie skills, bless him, his efforts are adorable but the time came for the pros to reclaim their box. I could stand to see a few more amateurs get tangled up in the net though.
Just because the Sernando lurve wasn’t captured in photos, doesn’t mean it escaped the cameras! The two foxy mofos decided to make some trouble for Pepe, there’s nothing more love binding than getting together to steal someone’s ball….
Nando for the distraction & Sergio for the steal!
A couple of lucky fans got to meet some of the boys today and we get to see just how bright Nando’s hair is under some fluorescent lights. It’s very Village of the Damned…great & now I’ve scared myself.
Arbeloa squeezed in for the second pic, I have one question though, where are his pants?
On to France! It’s crazy to see how differently the teams train, you go from the general jolliness & ring around the rosie drills with Spain to the more serious, but extremely steamy French sessions. Oui, oui!
I can’t be the only one who sees a little Jeremy Renner in Mexes, come on, who else sees it?
So France ran.
They ran some more.
They changed directions and continued running.
And then it was time for some cuteness!
I’m so glad Benz is growing some fuzz, it means the two stripes are back! Maybe they’ll bring him some luck & he’ll get to scorin’ this weekend.
UPDATE: I love it when things slip my mind *sigh* Lozil gave me a heads up to this article about the French NT post-Sweden loss. Apparently, the players were involved in a “heated dispute” after the match. Laurent Blanc says that it’s all good now, but I find it worrying. We all know that if the players are at odds in the dressing room, it’s going to show on the pitch. It’s too late in the game for France to crack now, I hope they come forward on Saturday and play their best.
