Lionel Messi opts for pizza, Pique a fan of Nutella sandwiches after games

It could be suggested that our obsession with soccer players borders on the absurd. For instance, take the quasi-firestorm that was drummed up after a reporter from Spanish newspaper Libertad Digital leaked a photo of Barcelona’s post-game meal selections.

Seems a bit bizarre to snap a photo of what players eat after a game, but look! Look at what these guys chow down on!

Lionel Messi has his eyes on a pizza (which is the biggest hit), although La Pulga opts for plain cheese. A few players (like Mr. Shakira, Gerard Pique) selected Nutella, a chocolate and hazelnut spread, to make a tasty sandwich.

Perhaps the most surprising reveal? Take a guess at who has the biggest appetite. If you guessed Luis Suarez, you’re wrong.

None other than diminutive midfield maestro Andres Iniesta, with an order of a ham and cheese pizza alongside a chorizo sausage and cheese sandwich, seems to have the biggest stomach.

Perhaps it seems like a lot, but consider how much running around these guys do, they can eat whatever they want.

Now, who said a picture of a menu would be boring?

World Cup fever reaches the fine world of pizza cuisine

World Cup fever has now reached the pizza oven.

What better way to celebrate the tournament than taking a cheesy bite out of a pizza decorated with some famous World Cup scenes?

Pizza Express put together some pretty impressive creations, including England lifting the World Cup in 1966, Paul Gascoigne crying at Italia 1990, Diego Maradona’s ‘Hand of God’ and Zinedine Zidane’s 2006 head-butt.

Take a look:

Columbus Crew’s Dominic Oduro really loves pizza

image

Nobody loves pizza more than Dominic Oduro loves pizza.

And to prove it, the Columbus Crew forward shaved the design of actual slices of pizza in his hair. Pepperonis and all. Check it out:

Who else is getting hungry?

Sadly, Oduro’s delicious ‘do couldn’t inspire Columbus to a win on Saturday, as the Crew tied NY Red Bulls, 1-1. Oduro came on as a second-half substitute but failed to score, which may have robbed us of a chance to see his favorite goal celebration:

Told ya. That man really enjoys his pizza.

Dominic Oduro celebrates goal with pizza

Columbus Crew striker Dominic Oduro is a hungry man. Hungry for goals — he leads the team with 11 this season, good for fifth in MLS — and certainly hungry for pizza.

Oduro was celebrating his opening goal against the Chicago Fire before remembering he had a personal pizza waiting for him on the sideline. Sure enough, Oduro was handed the box by a club employee, took a bite and gave the rest of the pizza to a fan in the front row.

Clever stuff, but it isn’t even the best celebration involving food. Remember these Icelandic guys?
