Cris modeled Portgual’s new kit as well and it got the flashy Nike treatment.
I mean, hello Photoshop! But of course, he looks great. What do you think of all the new kits?
On to the travel and training pictures…
And my absolute favorite is this shot of Cesc signing a Mesut Ozil RM jersey. Classic!
Sergio tweeted a picture (as did Pepe Reina) celebrating Andalucia Day with homie Jesus Navas.
Spain’s press conference featured Del Bosque, Cazorla, Soldado and Muniain.
Meanwhile, Mesut got his time at a press conference as well. I really hope some more pix of Germany start surfacing soon. I’m not trying to ignore the other national teams, I’m just not finding any shots.
Training pictures were scant on the ground as well, but here’s a couple. I’m sure more will pop up later.
Many Real players are off doing international duty: Marcelo (Brazil v. Bosnia Herzegovina), Sahin (Turkey v. Slovakia), Varane (France U 21 v. Italy U21), Pipita (Argentina v. Switzerland), Sami & Mesut (Germany v. France), Cristiano, Fabio & Pepe (Portugal v. Portugal) and Iker, Sergio, Xabi & Arbeloa (Spain v. Venezuela). Best of luck to them all.
Those not called up enjoyed two days off and will return to training tomorrow. Karim, Angel and Hamit are all still injured.
And last but not least, Iker and his hot bebe brother (and Muppet Baby Week alum) Unai did a commercial for Phillips razors. Mmmmm, Casillas brothers.
BTW, interesting rumor coming down the pike. Bild is saying that Lukas Podolski has agreed to personal terms for a summer transfer to Arsenal. No terms between clubs yet though. Hmmmm….
