This is Oguchi Onyewu towering over his tiny new teammate

American defender Oguchi Onyewu made his debut for Sporting CP recently, entering the match at the same time as 21-year-old midfielder Andre Martins. At 6-foot-5, Onyewu is a full foot taller than Martins, which makes this look like a before and after shot of a young Bruce Banner hulking up to play football.

It's unclear whether Sporting put them in at the same time in order to have them join together (i.e. have Martins sit on Onyewu's shoulders) to form a SuperFootballer (sponsored by Super Bock!). I'm guessing that's the ultimate goal.

Thanks to Andre (not Andre Martins) for the picture!
