The latest in armband fashions
Atalanta captain Papu Gomez, who you may remember as the guy who two-footed his own son on the beach a couple weeks ago, marked his return to the pitch by wearing a custom armband featuring characters from the animated film Frozen for his daughter’s birthday. No points for guessing which is his favorite child.

Gomez ended up scoring two goals within the first half hour of his side’s 4–1 win over Chievo Verona, which you kind of have to do if you’re going to wear Disney characters on your arm while you play.
This is just the latest in a long line of topical armbands Gomez has worn, though.

Hopefully this catches on and more captains bring some personality to their armbands, but, knowing FIFA, it’s probably just a matter of time before they ban the practice.
