Spain players go lingerie shopping together

Dirty Tackle

The Spanish national team are in Washington DC ahead of a friendly with El Salvador at FedEx Field on Saturday. In a break from training, Sergio Ramos accompanied Pepe Reina, Andres Iniesta and Pedro to a mall, where they all paid a visit to Victoria's Secret. Because there's no team bonding exercise for a group of all-male work colleagues quite like a trip to a lingerie store.

The camera-wielding vultures at TMZ caught footage of the defending world champions browsing the shelves, with Sergio Ramos getting some panty-based assistance from a sales clerk, for what is presumably a gift for his baby mama Pilar Rubio.

All four players left the store with a purchase, which is great news for Spanish fans: a team that buys panties together wins World Cups together. Let's just hope none of them consider flaunting La Roja's strict pre-match sex ban.
