Iker Casillas: Human fixture list. (Marca)

As Spain prepare to play World Cup qualifiers against Belarus and France, captain Iker Casillas wore a France T-shirt made by mutual sponsor adidas to training on Tuesday. Was it a show of corporate synergy? Some kind of early mind game? Maybe an unusual show of friendship and a statement against the bile and bitterness that can, at times, crush the spirit of athletic competition?

Whatever the case may be, it's probably just a matter of time before Sara Carbonero is blamed for it.

UPDATE: A France shirt is one thing, but what Portugal's Miguel Lopes wore to training is quite another. Wow.
