Spain go into the European Championship final chasing a famous major tournament treble, with only Italy standing in their way on Sunday night.
And, having noted that defender Gerard Pique’s girlfriend is Shakira already, it’s fair to say that La Roja’s top players are doing well off the pitch as well as on it.
That theory certainly applies to captain Iker Casillas, the 136-cap goalkeeper who has been between the sticks for over a decade.
In that time, television broadcaster Sara Carbonero has managed to catch his eye, although reportedly more than she should have after the 28-year-old was blamed for the goal that led to Spain losing against Switzerland in the 2010 World Cup. Her boyfriend then stormed out of a post-match interview – with her!
Voted the sexiest reporter in the world by FHM USA in 2009, the Telecinco sports journalist is now thought to be engaged to the Real Madrid stopper, although confirmation hasn’t come from either camp.
Does that means she still on the market? Unfortunately not, as Casillas confirmed his love for the brunette beauty with a kiss after winning the World Cup!
