The boys are already in Karim’s hometown of Lyon and ready for action. (Feel free to use the comments section before, during and after the match)

He posted a shot earlier today of his return to the Stade Gerland.

The following players were called up for the match:

Goalkeepers: Diego Lopez, Adan and Jesus.
Defenders: Pepe, Carvajal, Mateos, Casado and Nacho.
Midfielders: Khedira, Ozil, Cheryshev, Di Maria, Isco, Illarra, Casemiro, Quini and Modric.
Forwards: Cristiano Ronaldo, Benzema and Morata.

I’ll update later with the starting line up if I’m not in a meeting. Here’s some pictures of their arrival.

– Lozil

    Carletto and Zizou, two of my favorite people in the soccer world!

    i was a bit thrown off by the alarmist “benezma returns to lyon” headline i saw yesterday. it came across my radar right before,”ronaldo breaks child’s wrist.” what creative usage of words…

    *sigh* so sad to see the team with Higgy !!! Man I’m going to miss him ! Mwahz

    Idk why but something about Isco really bothers me , I – I – I just don’t like him ! Yaya his cute and all , but that warm fuzzy feeling I get with the other guys – just isn’t there with him . Its rather a feeling of distaste ! I wish he had gone instead of Pipa .

    Sorry about the bitchy rant ! Let’s get this game started

      How could he have possibly left? We just got him ;)- with difficulties! Try to give him a chance 🙂

      I agree, isco’s great but he seems rather cold or something 😦

        I think it’s more like he seems now to be very…reserved ? Or shy? (although I don’t know any reason why he would be 🙂 ) but I think it’s just a matter of time when he starts,you know, joking around and all:)

          i’m thinking he’s very shy because he was definitely affectionate with la rojita during the euro tournament. if i were him, i’d be kind of intimidated. i think he’s the cutest thing on two legs and would snuggle with him and his dog, despite dog’s name.

            We just need Sergio as the ice-breaker. He´s so going to cuddle Isco and then he´s hopefully going to feel less shy.

            I agree with you,not only about the cutest thing on two legs :)- I haven’t seen any sign of shyness when he was at u-21 euro (btw, have you seen SeFutbol videos?One that shows how official photos of the group was taken is worth watching- isco is tickling A.moreno,while nacho fernandez is making funny poses,and then nacho bites Isco’s shoulder:-D) and I like the idea of the two Andalusians cuddling 🙂

              Omg, his love for nacho is too much. I love the video where nacho kisses him so loud you can hear it.

                I only saw gif with that kiss, so I haven’t heard it, but still- it’s very adorable:)

      I think we just need time to get to know him.

      • Katie Ann July 24, 2013 at 5:58 pm #

        Agreed. Give the boy some time.

      Isco reminds me of Eden Hazard, without the youthful charisma and extroversion. Agree we just need time to get to know his own quirks.

    Aiiiieeeeeee! What’s going on?! I get out of a meeting and see Lyon is already 1 up?!
