Hello people. WIth EURO 08 hogging the limelight, i find it very difficult for me to update my blog. But now there is a pause to the tournament as the quarters are over and the semis waiting to happen in a couple of days , i find some time to write about this man- Iker Casillas Fernández.

Saint Iker was the hero as Spain progressed to the first major semi final since 1984 and will now play Russia. The game was dull and lifeless- thanks to Italy's negative football. 120 minutes of football failed to separate the two sides. It was the dreaded penalties yet again. Spain started scoring first with Villa getting the job done with a cool penalty. then came Grosso and Cazorla who all scored before casillas produced a stunning save to deny de rossi. Advantage Spain. Senna and Camoranesi scored before Guiza was denied by Buffon. Looked like Italy were back in business. NOT to be. The saint pulled off another save to stop di Natale from scoring. This setup Fabregas to catapult Spain into the semis. He did it in style and Spain were through. All was because of this one man and his brilliant saves. Captain Courageous. The saint has done it so many rimes for Real. He has now proven to the world why he is the best shot stopper in the world. Vamos Casillas.........!
