The Daily Drool: Alex Fernandez

3 Mar

Alejandro “Alex” Fernández Iglesias was born October 15, 1992 in Madrid.  This Libra midfielder is the younger brother of Real Madrid Castilla center back Nacho (José Ignacio Fernández Iglesias).  Mou chose Alex as one of the five canteranos that he took to the US for the pre-season tour in 2010. I love that he is all redhaired and freckly! Do you know who I think he’s going to look like when he grows up? Former player (US National Team/Padova/MLS) and current commentator (ESPN/NBC) Alexei Lalas. Yum! Hopefully, he won’t go through Alexei’s hideous long hair and beard phase though! Yuck!

Anyhow, more on today’s Muppet Baby…

Alex made his debut with Castilla in August 2010 but has been on the Spanish national youth teams since 2008. He was on the team in 2009 but unfortunately, an untimely injury kept him out of the FIFA U-17 World Cup. Here he is with the guy who seems to be everyone’s best buddy on Castilla: Alvaro Morata (Why do I think that Morata is going to end up being the king of bromance in Real Madrid: The Next Generation?)

This is the last of our Castilla boys for Muppet Baby Week. So are they are too young to scope out? Well, think for just a second about who came up through Real Madrid’s cantera: Iker, Guti, Raul, El Pirata and Adan. Nice, right? This is your chance to get in on the ground floor! And remember that this grows up to be this.  HALA MADRID!

      I looked all over and no joy, so I guess he doesn’t. However, if you go to this story and click on the pictures, you’ll see our muppets hanging with El Pirata and Adan who are giving them big brotherly advice.

      PS I’m on an updating roll today (work is, for the moment, kinda quiet) so I have another post that I am working on. Check back later.
