Real Madrid Football Club and their Tenth UEFA Cup

Rogelio Vieto writes [es] on his self named blog about the UEFAChampions League that won Real Madrid Football Club:

¿Pero realmente que significa esta dècima copa de europa? – Es el desahogo de cientos de madridistas a nivel mundial muchas veces humillados por equipos de menor presupuesto, pero quien se haya calzado 2 tacos alguna vez sabrà que dentro de la cancha son 11 contra 11 y el presupuesto no cuenta en lo absoluto, solo las ganas, el corazon, el empuje de la afición y el fútbol “testicular” deciden partidos y marcan la Historia.

But does this tenth UEFA Cup really mean? – It's the relief for hundreds of madridistas worldwide, many times humiliated by lower budget teams, but anyone who has worn 2 football shoes knows that in the filed there is 11 against 11 and the budget has no importance at all, only willingness, heart, motivation by the fans and “testicular” football decide matches and make History.
