POTCHEFSTROOM - One of the
secrets of the success of Fernando Llorente's physical playing
style is a skin-tight shirt that makes him look like The
Incredible Hulk, according to the powerful Spanish striker.
Llorente, who stands at a towering 1.95 metres, earned
widespread praise for his match-turning performance in the
European champions' 1-0 World Cup win over Portugal on Tuesday.
He came off the bench shortly after halftime to replace the
misfiring Fernando Torres, sowing chaos among the Portuguese
defenders with his strength and height, and was involved in the
build-up to David Villa's winning goal.
"Everyone was laughing because (the shirt) was very tight on
me and I looked like Hulk," the 25-year-old said in an interview
published on Friday by sporting goods maker Adidas.
"But I feel very comfortable with it and it also helps my
physical performance," he added.
Spain play their World Cup quarter-final against Paraguay at
Ellis Park in Johannesburg on Saturday.
