Teammates at Spanish top division side Atletico Madrid, France’s Antoine Griezmann and Uruguay’s Diego Godin have formed such a bond over the past four years that the rugged defender is the godfather of Griezmann’s daughter Mia.
“Diego is a great friend. I am with him every day in Madrid. it is a nationality that I love, a people that I love. It will be a very emotional match for me,” said Griezmann, who has always had a steady stream of Uruguayan teammates during his career in Spain.
“He says he is Uruguayan. He has always been surrounded by Uruguayan players during his playing career. He likes how we are and our music, he even drinks more mate than me,” said Godin.
