Confederations Cup: Nigeria vs Spain

I tell ya, with all the Sernando action this match brought, I almost wouldn’t have minded if La Roja didn’t make it to the Semifinals. They did make it though, beating Nigeria 3-0. I was actually surprised Spain didn’t concede a goal or two, not only because it was Valdes it goal (I keed, I keed) but because Nigeria was showing some major spunk. They broke through Spain’s defense quite a few times and their shots were just off, not enough finish to make it happen. La Roja just keep chugging along, moving through the tournament, having no problem finishing off their goals. Yay for Nando, his scoring continues! His goal and Jordi Alba’s brace were enough to send Spain through to the Semifinals, where they’ll face Italy. The Italian NT say it won’t be a repeat of the Euro final…..I’m excited to see how the match turns out and we don’t have to much longer to wait, just 24 hours or so. 😉

Pretty Iker!!

The Chelsea boys seemed to be having a rather serious convo before kickoff….

“Cesar, tell Sexy Care Bear that it’s customary and almost expected of me to rub up on Sergio if I score a goal.”

Xavi may have assumed the Captain’s armband and duties, but Pony still walks with authority!

Everyone knows the itty bitties like to start the party off early and that’s what Jordi Alba did. He scored the opener in the 3rd minute of play.

There rest of the 1st half was goalless, you can’t let yourself be spoiled by a 10-0 match scoreline. 😉 Nigeria came very close a few times and I was a little disappointed they didn’t press a little harder to make the match a bit interesting. Just as the game was about to go into halftime, a last minute effort came from Sergio. He was close to heading the ball in but it was sent straight to the keeper. When will he figure out that luscious locks and headbands = awesome headers?

In the 60th minute, Torres was told to get ready for action. He came on for Soldado.

I don’t think VdB made it clear what kind of action Nando needed to get ready for….*spank*

Whatever kind of action he was ready for doesn’t matter, because the boy brought it! With two minutes of being on the pitch, he managed to score AND via header? You know that was a shout out to his boo & was a calling out for some lurvin’.

Do you hear that? It’s the sound of angels singing.

Couples that play Slide together, stay together.

Finishing off the night, Jordi Alba came back in the 88th minute to score his second goal, assisted by David Villa.

 

And then it was time to get nekkid.

And I’m sure you don’t mind seeing this again. In my opinion, games should START with besos and END with besos.
