Wow ESPAÑA!! Congrats to La Roja!!!! Euro 2012 Champions!!!
the TV cutaway shots of Italian players so upset wereheartbreaking. So much passion goes into this sport. SPAIN’s Captain, Iker Casillas is the man!! But 4 real its obvious Spain seems to have an immense TEAM mentality, not individualistic. Truly Winners. WOW. What a game! What a run!
A big thank your to TSN & Sportscentre for letting me part of their Euro 2012 coverage, it’s been an honor to be part of this ride.
Shakira and Spanish soccer player Pique blow kisses back & forth at Euro 2012 from the pitch to the stands - So gross, but it’s kinda cute…in a really lame and gross way…but still kinda cute, right?
SHAKIRA’s GROUPIE LOVE FOR SPAIN
Shakira who is dating Spanish soccer player Pique (blogs have been going nuts with pregnancy rumours both in Spain & North America)
The real fun is following Shakira’s twitter account. She tweeted a pic from Euro saying (translated) : “in Ukraine following The Red, this groupie thing can be very tiring!” with a picture. He also tweets pics of them together and on dates - both fun to follow for soccer fans interested in players lives beyond the pitch!
There’s also a really cute viral video caught on YouTube of Shakira blowing him a kiss and he looks so happy blowing one back and laughing! watch it here.
Wanna win official FC Barcelona Swag? Jose Pinto is new to twitter and when he reaches 100 000 followers he’s giving away Swag! Follow him @13_Pinto ….
I guess Spain eased off their ban on players using Twitter. In June Cesc Fabreger posted “From oday we are not allowed to use social networks, I wish that the next picture I post will be with the Euro Cup. See you soon!” but since then he’s posted pix of the stadium, going on for dinner with his grandparents, and most recently it seems he recruited his team mate Pinto onto twitter!
Check out my latest instalment of BEYOND THE PITCH for TSN…bringing you all the social media buzz around Euro 2012. Watch in HERE.
Do you ever wonder what happens in a locker room once a team is out?
Well, According to the Associated Press, the French locker room broke into a scrap after their loss. One of the team’s senior players Florent Malouda said “there was a risk of launching rockets and missiles.” While their coach Laurent Blanc said “Yes, it got a bit heated, but then very one had a cold shower.”
This weekend, Laurent Blanc stepped down as France’s head soccer coach as tensions continue to rise and players are questioned on their behaviour.
Las mujeres de la “roja” // The women of “red”
- Watch video in Spanish here: www.elle.es
Spanish WAG’s get featured in the spanish version of ELLE Magazine as “The women in Red” playing on the soccer jersey colour.
There’s a video on the Elle.Es website, but if you don’t speak Spanish let me…and my trusty resource of google translator give you the re-cap…
The girls are actually not typical “WAG’s” most of them are professionals in their own fields, and they give some good dirt on their players…for example PePe Reina needs to eat a mixed meat sandwich before he plays a game, and if Pedro Rodriguez loses a match his lady makes him her mothers chicken wings recipe.
WATCH my TSN segment here! : Beyond The Pitch with Aliya-Jasmine, EURO 2012 on TSN
Before last week’s pivotal (and dare I say, surprising) Germany/Italy EURO 2012 game last week…German blogs were buzzing with more news about German soccer star Sami Khedira’s girlfriend. Lena Gercke was shown the YELLOW CARD - for being TOO SEXY!
(You may remember on my last edition of Beyond The Pitch for TSN we talked about that controversial GQ covershoot)
She was asked by German FA to tone down her appearance when taking her place in the stand for the semi-final games. Apparently her sexy wardrobe was making the other WAGs jealous the -drama is causing a distraction and moral issues for the players in the locker room.
(side note: Did she dress sexier than this pic above? because it’s the only one I could find of her in the stands and it look perfectly decent to me)
Inevitable Germany suffered a surprising loss to the Italians - although the moral issues are all speculation and Lena is not to be blamed at all, in my opinion - it no doubt is raising questions on wether or not WAGs should be allowed to be such a close distraction during these high-pressure games. Remember the previous management for England had put a ban on WAGs attending the games?? hmmm…thoughts?
