they still look the same

January 2, 2011

I’ve praised Jordi Codina more than once for being funny, amusing and just generally entertaining on twitter (unlike some others whom I won’t name) and he came through again!  Check out this tweet from today: “Does anyone recognize these two delinquents?” 

So adorable!

Iker’s only a year older, but he looks much bigger here!  (Jordi would eventually outgrow him.)  And it’s from when Jordi was still at Espanyol!

The photo was taken in 1995 during the Cadetes Tournament in El Puig (Valencia) when Iker was 14 and goalkeeper of Madrid’s Cadete A team, and Jordi was 13 and playing for Espanyol.  That day, they met for the first time and faced each other as well, with los periquitos winning 1-0.

And they’ve been friends since then, sharing nine years together at the Casa Blanca.  They now live about 300 meters from each other in Boadilla del Monte, and get together once in a while to eat or play cards or pádel.  Iker nicknamed Jordi El Cafeína because Jordi loves drinking Coke.

    Oh yes we do recognize those two delinquents 🙂 They are extremely adorable! Iker’s hair at that time always fascinated me, it was dorky but I find it sweet! At least he had a lot more hair than now :p
    They will be facing each other tonight, unfortunately I won’t be able to watch it :(, looking forward to your ICYMI already!
