Updated: Spain In Poland

5 Jun

Spain took a pre-flight snapshot before heading to Poland. They much more organized than Germany, aren’t they?

When La Roja arrived at their hotel in Gniewino, they were greeted by a young girl in traditional dress who gifted Fernando Llorente with bread and salt. Apparently, she thought he was the captain. This seemed to amuse the rest of the team.

Updated: Aiiiiieeeee! I forgot to include the video, which is the awesome part!

Pepe Reina posted this shot on his Facebook page. La Roja also had their official photo taken, all suited up.

Here’s a few more training shots and some Sernando togetherness. Nando was mixing his bromances, sharing moments with Iniesta and Arbeloa. Sergio hung out with Cesc.

At least the smile is still the same, even if the hair is still disconcerting. I bet he’s still going to wear a headband. (Photos via Daylife, RFEF.es and GF Sports. Gifs via sencilia)

    i … like … the … hair? even like this? yes, it makes him look older. and i get the whole but-we-can’t-run-our-fingers-through-it-any-more lament, i really, really do. but i think this is a good look for him. *shrugs* (i get it, though. if iker were to suddenly buzz all his hair off and concede defeat to nature, i’d have an effing coronary. i totally get it.)

    speaking of el capi, i love that the girl thought it was llorente! hahaha! man, what a lucky kid and she didn’t even know it.

    you’d think in the group shot, they could get them all to pose with their arms consistently the same way, either folded or behind their backs or at their sides … it looks sloppy like this. and who is the one woman in the photo? it isn’t pastasauce (thank god), so who is it? they don’t have a female team doctor, like chelsea, as far as i know?

    delusional fangirl moment: the photos of them all lined up, in their suits, looking expectantly at something out of frame, they all look like grooms at the altar, waiting for their brides to come up the aisle. (dibs on iker!)

      There’s still enough hair to run one’s fingers through…definitely enough to grab a hold of 😉

    Wow! Doesn’t Albiol looked v. handsome all suited up?, Pepe Reina looks like Pitbull (can totally imagine him duetting with Jenifer Lopez) and every time I see Sergio just now I’m thinking of the film ‘There’s something about Mary’….. !

    has there ever been a group of men that looked better in their suits than la roja? i think not.

    and i don’t think i’ve ever seen nando ‘interact’ with so many different team-mates, he looks so pleased to be there, it’s incredible.

    **happy beyond belief**

    Even in that crowd of handsomeness, one would be tempted to single out Llorente. Who can blame that girl?

    And Pedro is so teeny tiny! A girl like me could do him some serious damage! 😉

    Oh no! Please tell me, me and my fangirl brain are not the only ones who notice the longing look between Nando and Sergio on the sixth picture! Sergio was like stretching his neck and Nando, shy as he is, looked inconspicuous to his right where their views crossed!
    Oh my gosh :3

    Am I the only one that noticed that Torres and Mata were talking when Sergio made his little trip from the second row to the back row in that photo shoot? Notice he gets right in between them and their flirtations? Just keepin’ tabs on his man (or is it men, now?).

    Can’t Sergio give some of his old hair to Iker? He could use it as extensions or something. At least his haircut would be for one good cause. :/
