Cheeky Carragher and ’90s Neville – sports stars take part in football photo challenge

Another weekend without football.

As we all continue to get misty-eyed about the beautiful game a new social media challenge popped up.

The premise was simple, post a football photograph with no description.

There were some crackers….

Lucas Vazquez has a La Liga championship and three Champions League titles on his resume.

The Real Madrid and Spanish national team winger also has opinions on a number of topics, including who is the greatest of all time.

He sat down for a Bleacher Report AMA on Monday and answered questions about his career, what it is like to play with Cristiano Ronaldo and much more.


@362289: Do you think you would have beaten Liverpool (CL Final) in 2018 had Karius not been in goal and Salah not got injured?

We will never know, but before the game started I thought we were going to win 


@ModricHazard: Thanks for doing this, @lucasvazquez91 ! What has been your favorite moment with Real Madrid so far?

My favorite moment I think it was when we won any of the three Champions Leagues, those are incredible moments, very hard to describe. If I have to choose, maybe I’d choose the first one, as the first one is always different.


@Ochoa2thabone: When the final 90mins hit and you won the Champions League for the first time, when did it really sink in that you had just won a Champions League final?

It’s absolute joy to be able to celebrate a title with RM, the team of my life, and the most important title at the team level, it was amazing.

In the first moment, when we are hugging, celebrating, we break the pressure we’ve been carrying during the whole season and we celebrated together, it was something impressive. 


@Citizen_Blue: Lucas, tell us about THE penalty (in the 2016 final vs. Atletico). Especially that glorious walk-up when you were cool as a cucumber, looking like a Harlem Globetrotter!

In that moment when I was walking with the ball in my hand, I was thinking about scoring, scoring the first penalty and to help the team to get the title. I was lucky and the ball got in.


@Cruiz3: Why did you ask Zidane for the first penalty in that final?

I asked because I had a lot of confidence, I had been feeling good during the game, and in that moment, in my mind the only thought was to score the penalty. I was convinced I was going to score.


@oroz20: Who would be in your all time 5-a-side?

sergio ramos, lucas, karim, cristiano, courtois


@MADRIDISTA10: Man WOW I’m a big fan! What current or former soccer player do you idolise the most?

I’d say Luis Figo, I grew up watching him play in Real Madrid, he plays in my position and I’ve always watched and still do watch videos of him to improve my game through his.


@RONAD7DO: In the first leg against Juventus in the 2018 Champions League, you were one of the closest players on the pitch to witness Cristiano’s masterpiece of a goal (the overhead kick). How did you feel and what were you thinking at that moment?

I saw a
