Having lived in Spain for so many years, it is impossible not to get involved with soccer. I don’t follow Real Madrid or Barcelona much beyond the highlights, but I love to see the Spanish flags come out every two years for the world and euro cups. This one’s for everybody in Spain or Italy, as well as any true football (or soccer, as I would tend to call it) fans, or simply for anybody who never knew that Tintin was once drawn in a football uniform.
His face is really quite aggressive. And the socks are…well, they’re interesting, to say the least. Yellow and black are both colors in the Belgian flag. Can anybody back up my guess that that was the Belgian jersey in 1979?
To a certain degree though, Tintin kind of looks like he’s wearing Iker Casillas’ uniform. It’s close…
Come on Spain!
