Real Madrid signed Hamit Altιntop back in May, but the 28-year-old midfielder didn’t make his debut until today, after finally recovering from a back injury. Like Mesut Özil and fellow new signing Nuri Şahin, Altιntop was born in Germany to Turkish parents. He only played the final few minutes of today’s Champions League match against Ajax (Madrid won 3-0), but I’m happy to finally welcome him to the team. He won the FIFA Goal of the Year award last year and has killer cheekbones. And his identical twin Halil plays with him on the Turkish national team.
