UPDATED: They train, they chat, they bromance

25 Jun


Sometimes they multitask! Trainin’ and bromancin’ at the same time, we lurve it! There was a lack of Sernandoliciousness at the start of this tournament, but now the bromance is flowin’. Maybe Nando just needed to score in order to make all things right with his boo….I’m sure the goals helped too. 😉

The goals shall speak for themselves…..mostly.
