Watishista Mimi has perfect timing. I just got home from work (at 11:30 PM – ugh) and realized I forgot to make a Drool post for tomorrow. She suggested Cardiff City striker Peter in the comments and voila! Peter was eligible to play for Kazakhstan, Russia, Uzbekistan (where he was born) and Nigeria. He chose to represent the latter, making his debut in 2002.

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. 😉

While I Was Sleeping…

2 Jun

…y’all were busy! I woke up to a ton of comments. Watishista Mais kindly sent in this video of La Roja on the plane to the US. She got it from Isabella who found it on Twitter (but didn’t send it in to us. Naughty!!!! ;-)) Thanks, Mais, I actually do need to occasionally sleep (it’s rare, but…) so it’s nice to know that people are there are finding and sharing goodies with us. A watish! of the headband to you, young lady! Scandals from this video? Nando sitting with Xabi, (which to be fair, given half a chance I would sit with him too) and Sergio sitting with…Bruno? Hmmm, this lack of bromancing is seriously pissing me off. Think of the fangirls, Sernando! Other goodies that showed up…
