"My cousin Angelo from Carletonville went to the Spain practice at Potchefstroom and asked Iker Casillas for the glove, Casillas took off his glove and gave it to Angelo. Angelo then asked him to sign it and Casillas took it back and signed the glove for Angelo - Casillas did this with a big smile on his face.

"The following week I went with Angelo to the practice and Angelo asked Casillas for his shirt and Casillas took it off and said "Sure buddy - have it but be warned it a little sweaty". 

"Now thats definetly Ayoba!

"Angelo and his brother Ayrton are passionate soccer supporter and the irony of the whole glove story is that the glove was used at the Spain v Portugal game and is the one that saved the goals and prevented Portugal from going through to the next round.

"We are Portuguese so Angelo was a little sad but even he said Spain deserved to win.  And of course the glove meant he forgot all about Portugal not going through to the next round!"
