I’ve been saving my absolute favourite, Iker Casillas Fernández, for a special occasion, and this is a special occasion. The 29-year-old Real Madrid goalkeeper was ecstatic to win the Copa del Rey his first season as team captain, thanks in part to his mad skillz. In fact, the last time Madrid won the Copa, Casillas was just a young lad in the RM’s academy. And if you recall from the World Cup, Iker is particularly lovable when he’s celebrating.

I don’t have the energy to write up the full match results. Suffice it to say that Real Madrid won 1-o in overtime, with Cristiano Ronaldo scoring the goal. Congrats chicos!
