Barcelona star Gerard Pique gets over his Spain snub by watching the basketball with his girlfriend Shakira
Gerard Pique showed no signs of being down about his omission from the Spain squad as he attended a basketball game with popstar girlfriend Shakira.
The Barcelona star was left out of Vicente del Bosque’s side for the Euro 2016 qualifier against Macedonia on Tuesday night.
Pique was omitted along with the likes of Juan Mata but was all smiles as he watched the Basketball World Cup quarter-final match between Slovenia and USA at the Palau Sant Jordi in Barcelona.
Spain sealed a hugely impressive 5-1 win in their Euro 2016 qualifier, with Manchester City’s David Silva among the scorers.
The victory was Spain’s first win since the World Cup in Brazil, where they were dumped out at the group stage.
Pique, 27, has been a regular fixture in the Spain squad since making his senior debut back in 2009. He has scored four goals in 61 games for his country.
