We still have plenty of Fernando’s, Dias’ and Pereira’s to support on the other side of the world. As for which one looks better, I’ll leave that to you…

Fernando Torres, Spain

Alvaro Pereira, Uruguay

Marcelo Diaz, Chile

Arturo Vidal, Chile; Chamara Kapugedera, SL

Benoît Assou-Ekotto, Cameroon; Tillakaratne Dilshan, SL – just because, look how good these photos look together.

And really, while you don’t need any reason to sit back and enjoy a good sport, these are just the perfect excuses.
