Iker Casillas And Sara Carbonero Give The Best Post-Game Interview Ever

by: JamieD On  Monday, July 12, 2010

Goalkeeper Iker Casillas was the man for Spain at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.  Many will point to David Villa’s five goals as the key to Spain’s success at this tournament, but it was the Spanish captain’s calm under pressure and ability to make the big save at key moments which gave his country five shutouts, including four consecutive 1-0 victories in the knockout phase, on route to their first ever World Cup title.

And as “the man” it was only appropriate for Casillas to conclude his post game interview by sharing an emotional kiss with girlfriend Sara Carbonero.

Carbonero, who is a reporter for Spain’s Telecinco channel, was the subject of criticism after being present behind the Spanish net when her boyfriend allowed the only goal in a 1-0 loss to Switzerland in their opening match of the tournament.  However, such accusations were quickly put to rest as Casillas and his team quickly rebounded with a 2-0 victory over Honduras, and never looked back from there.

And after being asked how he was feeling following the biggest victory in his country’s history, an emotional Casillas thanked his parents, brother, friends, and finally, his girlfriend.  Those present to witness their emotional kiss gave the couple a round of applause as Casillas left his blushing girlfriend to celebrate with his teammates.

Kissing the World Cup trophy is a once in a lifetime opportunity, but for Casillas, it was only the second best trophy that he would lay his lips on during this special night.  As for the first?  You guessed it…Sara Carbonero!
