The only thing Casillas wanted to say is....

The only thing Casillas wanted to say with this video was.... :

a.- how much he loved his country.

b.- his days in the national team were over.

c.- his favourite actor is Sylvester Stallone.

What do you think? Watch the video and answer


As you have seen we have emphasized what the Spanish goalkeeper said by using a most interesting structure, that is to say, a CLEFT SENTENCE. But what is it? Here are a few links for you to see how cleft sentences work ( 1  2   3 ) and you can also do some exercises about this grammatical issue:  1  2   3  

Some examples:
  • It was 27th June when Italy defeated Spain in the Eurocup in France.
  • What I want you to do this summer is to watch New That's English episodes.

  1. To begin with, I think Casillas only wanted to say with this video how much he is grateful to all the fans who have supported him during his time in the national team. In many cases, there are many people who only make false statements about Casillas and only want to harm him. From my point of view, José Mourinho has made a lot of damage to Casillas' career because when he arrived in Real Madrid, he only wanted Casillas to stay in the bench. Probably, the biggest injustice with Casillas took place in Real Madrid, because he went out of the team as if he was an average player. That is what I think

    Now, Spain is out of the Eurocup as Italy defeated them on 27th June. What a pity!! Yesterday, there was a match between Germany and France, France defeated Germany with goals by Griezmann, one of which was scored with his head, apart from the first one scored with his foot. It was a beutiful macth.

    Perhaps Casillas is one of my idols, but I have many others idols. Because of him, Spain has won many competitions like The World Cup in South Africa in 2010 and the Eurocups of 2008 and 2012. Thank you Casillas for all that you are for this country.
