In what could be rightfully term as a celebration, a fiesta will be held in the streets of Madrid and hopefully in all of Spain, as the World Cup winner arrives home safely. A World Cup Parade will commence after an audience with the Spain’s King… I’m sure that the event will be a riotous affair as Madridenos prepares for the big celebrations.

THE TRIUMPHANT CAPTAIN

And i so love the headline in this Spanish dailies… got a bit of my name on it…

After the awarding ceremony, Spain, the world’s hottest team, has continued their celebrations in the locker room with the Spanish royals congratulating them and no less than Spain’s lucky charm, Wimbledon Champ Rafael Nadal on hand celebrating with them. The Oracle Paul the Octopus might have predicted what we’ve known all along but it was really Rafa Nadal’s lucky charm connection that has aided Spain towards their first ever World Cup trophy… Remeber Euro2008, the same year Rafa won the Wimby? Well Rafa is right, Spain should be celebrating this awesome win for a year…

I’m still overwhelmed at this time so i’ll just post this for the meantime and the rest of the updates will follow later…

Highly emotional Portugal captain Cristiano Ronaldo was in such a state in last night Spain vs Portugal game that his one-man show effort is futile against the mighty Spanish armada. He was hardly seen in the second-half you think he was substituted or the person on the field was just his shadow. In the end all his effort was for naught as Portugal was knocked out of the Round 16 of the 2010 FIFA Tournament joining highly illustrious countries such France, Italy, USA, England that was knocked out earlier.

Amidst the celebrations of Spain team, the camera was solely focused on Cristiano Ronaldo and his dejected posture. We all know how unforgiving the camera are on this year tournament but did i just see Cristiano spit intentionally? I just found out now that it was a big deal and now the fans are calling him a big loser. Whatever. On the brighter side, now he can get on with his life and go on a holiday with Irina and give us highly entertaining stories. Now the countdown for the Cristiano-Irina relationship begins. How long will it last?

SPITFIRE: DID HE OR DID HE NOT INTENTIONALLY?

ALL ALONE

DIDN’T HE KNOW THE LYRICS?

I have noticed that Cristiano never ever sing Portugal’s national anthem. May be he doesn’t want Eduardo to hear his voice, or there’s fear that he might get discovered by an agent that he has a voice for singing?

The humiliated England team is back on their turf and if i were them i will book a long holiday away from the critics and the fans.

HUMILIATED AND DEJECTED

Well tonight is the night where Spain will meet Portugal in the R16. Portugal’s captain Cristiano Ronaldo will be facing a lot of his friends on the other team and though he has admired Spain as the world’s best , advancing to the next level is what keeping his mind on the level. Let’s all hope the best team wins tonight.

Forbes Alert: Forbes has released their 100 Most Powerful Celebrity and Cristiano Ronaldo is ranked at # 48. To quote Forbes: “Last June Real Madrid paid a record $132 million transfer fee to Manchester United for the rights to Ronaldo. The 2008 FIFA Player of the Year did not get a cut of the transfer money, but he was rewarded with a six-year deal worth $18 million annually. Ronaldo is challenging David Beckham as the most marketable player in soccer. His biggest deal is with Nike; it pays Ronaldo $8 million annually.
