Early in the World Cup, it seemed that Spanish goalkeeper Iker Casillas and his gorgeous reporter girlfriend, Sara Carbonero, could be a be a distraction powerful enough to thwart Spain's World Cup efforts.
After the Spaniards were shockingly upset in their first match of the tournament, some fans felt that the beautiful sports correspondent prevented her boyfriend from fully focusing on his on-field duties. Following the stunning loss, Carbonero even asked Casillas how he managed to "muck this up."
Such concerns were quickly cast aside as Spain began to dominate in South Africa, and with a World Cup victory in hand, the thought that Carbonero was a distraction now seems silly.
After defeating the Netherlands in extra time on Sunday, Carbonero interviewed Casillas, but the exchange quickly turned into a celebration as the pair began to kiss in front of the camera.
