Madridistas on National duty

This matchday will see a few of Real Madrid’s south american boyz don their national team outfit.

  • Casemiro, Vini Jr and Militao will probably see some action as Brazil take on Chile.
  • Fede Valverde will also get his boots dirty, since he will most likely start part of the Uruguaian NT when they face Peru.

Compliments from Rennes’ Sporting Director

Which we’ll gladly welcome with open arms. Renne’s Sporting Director Florian Maurice had the following to say on Real Madrid’s aquisition of Eduardo Camavinga:

For him, it’s fantastic and he deserves it, he has joined the biggest club there is,

I think Real Madrid will give him the means to become a great player.

Former White Talisman Cristiano’s latest Achievement

Cristiano Ronaldo, former white fire-breathing dragon, has finally done it. He’s broken the all-time men’s international goal-scoring record. The Portuguese saw his penalty saved by 19 year-old Gavin Bazunu, yet managed to find the back of the irish team’s net twice at the death with a couple of his trademark dramatic headers to seal his team’s victory and finally blast past Ali Daei’s record of 109 goals. Cristiano now has 111 goals for his national team.

Do we still love him or do we still love him?!?! All hail.

Have fun and enjoy whichever games you chose or happen to watch. May the madridismo be with ya all.
