    It's taken around twenty years off him! Well done to him. :-)

  2. Tomisin says:

    Why can't I see any of the previous comments?

  3. Carolina says:

  4. Sylvia15 says:

  6. caitanya says:

    Xabi alonso shaved his off too!! :-( Sad days sad days …

    • HRH ROAR says:

      but i saw the ginger beard in the match! are you sure it's off? :D (scoots off squealing to search.)

  7. Tashinka says:

    It seems to have worked, thank heavens!

    Now is there anything similar that Piqué can do to keep from getting hurt? In the last two games three of his most valuable… parts… have been injured. His royal spiciness had blood nearly running into his eyes, his junk almost knocked off, and then his purty lips busted. Hopefully that second one didn't result in blood loss as well! :eek:

  8. rubyqueen says:

    i told you i knew spain would win..:) and it's all thank's to iker shaving the beard.YAY.. onwards and upwards from now on..xx

  9. VeNia says:

  11. Leesy Lou says:

    Booooooooo!! Gutted!!! I <3 The Beards!!!

  12. eatmyboost says:

    Ohhhh Iker … sooo cuuute … I would love some of his beard clippings though.

  13. tash says:

    YESSSSSSSSS…my monday morning just got brighter :)

  14. [...] you seen the now clean shaven Iker Casillas? Looks yummy… Kickette has the [...]

  15. ignaiad says:

    mmm i wish pepe would nuzzle me like that….

    oh wait, someone shaved?

    • Sara says:

      Exactly, though I love Iker too but in this pic all I can see is Pepe… mmm I love this photo to death.

  16. mahn says:

    now he looks 10 years younger! which is a good thing..for me. ;)

  17. marie says:

    just when i was getting used to the beard this happens…..
    love Iker!!!

  18. iida says:

    San Iker sans beard is back! This means Spain is going to beat Honduras into a pulp and make us forget those horrible 90 minutes with Switzerland for good, yes?

  19. Zlatanista says:

    Beard or no beard, the man is so beautiful it hurts! Is Reina biting him? If so, i´m not blaming him :)

  20. Jasmine says:

    So HOT! I just wish Cesc would get rid of his beard as well. :)

  21. Ines del Sol says:

    Dios, our prayers were heard!!!


    So, if Nando turned 12, Iker turned 17 now, who's next? Cesc? Maybe it's a recipe for success? To get rid of all hair?

    • iida says:

      But Cescy is only 23! If Nando goes from 26 to 12, would Cesc look like a nine-year-old? I dread to think of it…

  22. Jovana says:

    NOOOOO! I like the beard! But he still looks good :)

  23. Jovana says:

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! I like the beard :( but he still looks good :)

  24. Brittany says:

    He looks gorgeous anyway, but I loved the beard. It gave him a rugged, manly look. I just hope Spain will make it against Honduras tomorrow…with some shirtless Torres for us….

  25. suleka,(: says:

    aw, he looks incredibly cute

    and HOT!#

    iwish spain best of luck today ;)

  26. Normative says:

    Whats wrong with the beard? A beard is a sign of a real man!

  27. aps says:

    He looks so much better!

  28. Inés says:

    he looks great! I just hope Cesc follows his example!!!!!!
    Please Cescy, shave your freaking beard!

  29. natalie says:

    even the guy behind is mourning the loss of the beard

  30. tessa says:

    He looks AMAZING!

  31. jackie says:

    with the beard gone he looks like he lost weight and looks younger. well done

  32. beri says:

    awww…here's hoping that Spain win tomorrow!

  33. janethem says:

    He's so beautiful without the beard!

  34. kat says:

    i almost forgot what he looked like without a beard!
    and i didn’t think he was going to look as good as i remembered… but i was happily wrong!
    keep the shaving up iker!! LOVE IT!

  35. Mrs.DiegoForlan says:

    awww he looks like a cute teddy-bear! love that smexi jaw line, too!

  36. Gaby says:

    FINALLY!! After his mistake in the last match, it was the very least he could do!!! I can feel it, this miracle will turn around everything!!

  37. LFCprincess says:

    I love sooo many things about this pic. 1. Iker no longer has an animal on his face and we can see his incredible jawline 2. The way Iker's shirt hangs on him is delicious. 3. Pepe kissing Iker's shoulder! Adorable!!!

  38. HRH ROAR says:


    Not only is Pastasauce gonna get ditched, he’s going to wipe out whatever is left of Group H with the entire Spanish squad! I found out about this before Kickette posted this, and it was in the middle of the Brazil vs Cote d’Ivoire match. I totally didn’t care of Fabiano scored the opening goal of the match (sorry, hon, but Spanish fashion trumps Brazilian footballing success for a while back there) and I squealed so much my dad gave me the evil eye. :D

    Ah, I’ve been sulky for so long over the loss in Durban, which is a spooky place, if you ask me. The Goliaths that played in Durban so far failed to win, ending with losses and pathetic draws. Thank goodness Spain isn’t going to be there any more, or I’ll run over Golsen Fernandes with my ninja powers.


  39. SunnyK says:

    Aww! The beard had grown on me — not like it grew on him, but I'd accepted it's existence! Now he looks like the 19 year old I fell in love with!

    Hmmm…upon closer inspection of the way Pepe is positioned on Iker, perhaps Pepe was shaving and decided to go a little further!

  40. Beth says:

    weirdly, I had kinda got used to the beard!!!! He looks so much younger now, i think a bit of stubble is his best look :)

  41. Angharad says:

    Thank God. Maybe now that he's back to his Euro 2008, stopping-balls-with-the-sheer-force-of-his-righteous-anger look, as opposed to the past two years of listening-to-Evanesence, just-about-to-slit-his-wrists emo-goth shame, he will simultaneously regain his powers of, well, stopping balls with the sheer force of his righteous anger, and Spain's fortunes will correspondingly improve.

    • HRH ROAR says:

      Damn, where is the 'Like' button to your post!? :D D

      • Angharad says:

        Iker has always been a better goalkeeper when he's absolutely furious, rather than cheerful or depressed. I don't think it a coincidence that his goalkeeping skills decreased as the utter fail of the Real Madrid back line decreased — he doesn't know what to do with himself when he's not screaming bloody murder at his centrebacks. And while I don't want Spain's back line to turn into RM's of three and four years ago — not that it would, with Puyol and Pique back there — I'm hoping that the shame of losing against Switzerland will make him angry enough he will go back to being a bloody good goalkeeper.

    • JaneSpotting says:

      LOL..great use of words.
      I will take Iker with beard or without beard…whatever and any which Iker will do! Very fine, if not the finest.

  42. ICan'tThink says:

    The beard kinda grew on me at times, but I think he looks MUCH younger without it..

    I do hope Xabi follows suit though :)

  43. Mary says:

    Now he is really sexy….i hope the spanish team will play good tomorrow!!

  44. Venice says:

    Oh no :-( sure he’s still hot, but he looks so much younger now. I really liked his conquistador beard, I thought he looked much better with it.
    Please Iker grow it back :-(

    • caitanya says:

      Venice, i totally agree with you there! Not that i am opposed to him without it, but still … :-(

      Bring back the beard, iker!

    • Callie says:

      I miss the all conquering conquistador too!!!

  45. Erin says:

    And he still only wishes he was as sexy as Pepe.

  46. Syrian! says:

    OMG I LOVE THIS MAN SO MUCH. Wiz or wizout a beard he looks amazing! JUST LOVE HIM LOVE HIM LOVE HIM <3<3<3 looks adorable .. hope they do well 2morrow

    • Syrian! says:

      eventho I was getting used to th beard, and he looked amazingly hot hot hot in the match against Swiss muwaha just big love

  47. Anita says:

    he looks soooo much better without beard!!!! :P

  48. Kahlen says:

    I wish I was Pepe in this picture ;)

  49. rubyqueen says:

    mmmmmmmmmm hot.i was never really a iker fan.but now i'm seeing the light.he look's very gorgeous.;) and i'm sure this is a sign.i can feel it in my bones spain are gonna whip hondures's arse tommorow.and WIN THE TOURNAMENT.:)xx

  50. Litte Miss Arsenal says:

    YYAAAAYYY!!! Thank God!!

  51. Hannah says:

    looking good iker ;)

    i wish cesc would do the same…

  52. LiLi says:

    I think I must of been the only one who liked the beard. I didnt like it when it was like in full bloom and covered his beautiful face but I thought that he looked nice with a bit of stubble.

    Looks younger though without it now ;D

    Aww Casillas seems to be able to work both (H)

  53. Adri says:

    About time he sacrificed that animal on his chin to placate the football gods. Spain is saved!

  54. izzy says:

    “PS: If you have to ask why this qualifies as breaking news, then you really don’t know very well at all.”

    Lol! That’s some of the most exciting news from the world cup thus far. Especially because we’re still bitter in the U.S.! Thanks ladies.

  55. Yao says:

    I feel like my world's been knocked off-kilter. Still not sure how I feel about San Iker sans facial hair. Wonder if he shaved it in the hopes of being quicker to stop shots on goal in the match tomorrow.

  56. elnino says:

    It's an improvement. He looks wayyyy younger! I used to be like "Iker can't save shots because he's old", this picture shut me up.

  57. Ellaxx says:

    This picture is amazing. So cute.

  58. Kahlen says:

    I love it! Perhaps, it will bring them better luck for the rest of the tourney?! I sure hope so.

  59. simone says:

    I love it. Thank god finally.

  60. iida says:

    Well well well, I just thought I'd check Kickette tonight before going to bed, in case there was something I should know. And I'm glad I did. Imagine missing this! I would've slept for hours and woken up tomorrow without having a clue what is going on in the world.

    In all seriousness: I love Iker, regardless of what the hairs on his face look like. The scruff was great, the beard was sexy, and this clean-shaven style? Well, it really shows off his jawline, does it not?

  61. Mary says:

    Now he is really sexy….i hope he the spanish team will play good tomorrow!!

  62. C16 says:

    Totally off topic but we have to talk about the French team! Too much to talk about that, Lashes needs us.

    Come on Kickette!

    • Molly says:

      I know, poor Yoann! But the French NT need a therapist not us LOL….just joking :) ! I agree we need a post about them so we can talk about it and offer advice :) .

    • Kahlen says:

      Yes I agress!!! Poor baby. They are just picking on him because he is so beautiful (inside and out). Only if we were there to comfort him. I wish ;)

  63. Diane says:

    Oh no… i normally dont like beards but i liked the scruffy iker… maybe it just looks weird to me because he still has a mustache… :(

    hopefully it will improve spains game tomorrow because they need to win win win like no other tomorrow

  64. Molly says:

    OMG I am going to be coming back to this all night and I still have to make Lamps his bday cake LOL!! It gets tough when your two loves collide lol.

    • MrsNesta says:

      Awww save a piece of cake for me? I keep coming back to it too! Think he did this to keep on side with us, or maybe was hoping that it was a reaction to him and Pasta breaking up LOLOLOLOL :)

      • Molly says:

        Of course I will save you a piece LOL! But I would love if it was a reaction to him and Pasta breaking up! That would make my day complete LOL! He looks so good though…I love how babyfaced he looks :) . I just fell madly in love with him…AGAIN lol :) !

      • Thea says:

        Well ladies – he did shave his beard last year in December … JUST as he was breaking up with Ana the bank girl … just thought I’d make the observation.

        Highlight in my day as still utterly shocked about how the French team is going, poor Yoann, Never mess with an ugly f&%ker like Ribery, his face can’t get any worse!!!

        • Molly says:

          OMG your right Thea he did! I hope he does break up with her :) .

          But poor Yoann!!! That whole French NT situation is just pure craziness! This WC has been crazy I think….like I am just laughing b/c I can't cry anymore LOL!

          • Thea says:

            It's all very depressing hun. Watching the brazil game now with my face pack on as am working later in the day tomorrow! I can't have puffy eyes in my job so I have to just to bite my fist instead!

            • Molly says:

              I am so nervous for this Spain game tomorrow b/c the Engish NT has alreay disappointed me and I don’t want to be disappointed with Spain now. So I am hoping they play well tomorrow and can pull through. I seriously think I will have a mental breakdown if they don’t!

              • Thea says:

                Well – if Spain can’t beat Houndrais (as England couln’t beat Algeria, and France with Mexico AND italy with NZ) you start to think that the SHOULD just pack up and go home!

                • Molly says:

                  Totally agree with every word you said!

                  • Molly says:

                    But this seems to be the theme of this WC, the small teams are dominating the big teams. Its very sad! I had high hope for England, Italy, and France (hopefully Spain will not disappointment me again tomorrow). There is just too much drama going on too. Its just crazy *shaking my head*.

                    • Thea says:

                      Seems like the European teams have gone into meltdown and the South American are taking charge, Crazy times!! I miss the UK Wags, loved their whole binge drinking, over spending antics!

                    • Molly says:

                      Exatly! I know, I miss them too! It was so much fun and craziness in 2006 with them there lol. This WC just isn’t the same without them :( lol :) . Are you from the UK?

                    • Christina says:

                      Molly and Thea, reading your comments were just as great as Iker shaving his beard.

                    • Thea says:

                      Thanks Christina!! Molly I have been living in the UK since before I was a teenager and now live in a town just 15 miles north of Leeds where I study part time, that’s when I’m not working overseas!!

                    • Molly says:

                      I have a friend that went to Leeds. She really liked it. And I love Cloud 23 too! Thats one of the venues my fiance and I are looking at for our wedding next summer.

                    • Molly says:

                      Aww thanks Christina!! :) ! Thea- I am from Manchester and Leeds is nice! Are you studying at Leeds University?

                    • Thea says:

                      Yes I do – getting a post grad. Decided to finish my education – after quitting after A levels. Have friends over your way and love, love, love Cloud 23 bar and all round Deansgate locks!

                    • Thea says:

                      Thankfully Sapin one – and no sign of Pastaface interviewing him, just villa this time! Hope you get that venue babe – very wagalicious!

              • Kahlen says:

                I am too. I almost cried. Their faces were so sad. If only Xabi’s shot had gone in. I can’t stop thinking about that.

                But I was really hoping for the US and England to both advance. We’ll see what happens.

  65. suzie says:

    Holy shit, there is a god.I forgot how babyfaced he is without it.

  66. Deffo-Nando says:

    YEEESSSSSS!!!! :) that is all

  67. C16 says:

    WOW!!! Serious breking news!!!!!

    I think I got too used to the beard, I actually liked it… He looks so different. lol

  68. Key says:

  70. snowy says:

    Oh no, bad move. Stick him in a tracksuit and he looks like any skinny teenager down the chip shop now. Bring back the beard Iker!

  71. Maria says:

    *gasp* WOW. I had forgotten how beautiful he was without the beard…although I had fully embraced and loved the beard by now :)

    Either way…<333

  72. MrsNesta says:


    Love him with or without the beard but its wonderful to see him again without it and looking so young, no wonder Pepe can't leave him alone ;)

  73. xtasiado says:

  76. espaBi says:

  77. Emma says:
