Double Up: Julio Santa Cruz

imageimage

Oh, we were thrilled with the initial news, we were.

We didn’t even know Roque Santa Cruz had a younger brother and then we discover 18-year-old Julio in the headlines, signing for Blackburn.  We had visions. Visions on a grand and global scale.

Alas, it would seem although the footballing talent runs in the family, Roque seems to have inherited the majority of the hawt-dayum variety of genes in the pool.

Your thoughts on the second Santa Cruz, Kickettes? Double the fun or Deeply disappointing?  We’d like to withhold full judgment until we’ve seen young Julio in action and in a better photograph.

    A friend of mine had a theory that when one sibling is great looking, the others suffer the consequences.

  2. Alexandra Pato says:

    he’s ok, i guess…. but disappointing

  3. The Fourth Official says:

    It's really too much to expect that Mr. and Mrs. Santa Cruz could do an amazing double. Sorry, but Julio looks like he will always be the homely little brother. Can he play a bit?

  4. louisquatorze says:

    He's just a baby- too hard to tell whether he'll grow up to approach his brother or not. Both on the field and off it. ;)

  5. TammyV says:

    welcome Dreamgirl…and I am waiting for a better picture. I have hopes and look he has dimples

  6. Kat says:

    I agree that the younger Santa Cruz might need a few more years until he can be as pretty as his older brother. Still, I find it amusing that there is now a pair of brothers on the same Premier League team.

    LMAO diziet. that’s true. i think i’ll hold off judgment until better pics are obtained!

  9. diziet says:

    hmmm, i'm not seeing much lust potential here but he could be a late developer. to be fair, though, i'm not sure it is really possible to compare a half-formed teenager with a grown man in the full throbbing prime of his hotness…

    Ha! I had the same surprise. I posted this photo on the SBA thread last night…I know, he's not spanish, but they were still awake…and expressed my surprise that little SC did not win that family's genetic lottery. Again, I'm not saying he's ugly, just that he's not in the same league as Roque. I know, he's young, but that can only change so much!

  12. Ice Princess says:

    Maybe we need to wait for him to grow into his hotness? Iker’s younger brother seems to suffering from the same affliction o.O

  13. That Andy Chick says:

    My thoughts on Julio are the same as those on Roque: Meh, I’ll pass, thanks.

  14. autumnmaple101 says:

    Looks like a good, decent little boy. Definitely not in the same league as dear Roque though :)

  15. wanniemelon says:

    the pic on the right's not too shabby

  16. Becca says:

    Im hoping its just a bad picture kickette haha :)

  17. dos santos girl says:

    We need a better photograph! I'm willing to give him a second chance even though the one we have seems to show his features clearly . . .

  18. Venice says:

    He's 18. I think he'll be cute, possibly even hot enough in a few years. Different than Roque, but all the better – he needs to get out of his brother's shadow.

  19. Lucy says:

    Lol Diziet 'full throbbing prime of his hotness' Sorry I can't think of anything original after that! :D

  20. MrsXabiAlonso says:

    Eww, no!! Lets hope he does grow into his face.

  21. Avenath says:

    Genevieve, the pix on the right is Roque…Julio is on the left…poor boy…must be tough having a HOT brother..he looks like the sweet little brother who prefers to stay in the background…bless him!

  22. Johnna says:

    Awww bless. He's still young so we'll have to just give him time.

  23. FootballerChick43 - says:

    Wow. He's just like his brother – he looks different in every single photo he takes. He's not bad, but I agree with Erin – not the same as Roque.

  24. Dreamgirl says:

    Im all exited. This is my first commnet ever. Im not a big fan of Roque anyway but they both look friendly. Julio could possibly be on the ‘sweet’ rather that ‘hot’ list.

  25. Genevieve Gourcuff says:

    The pic on the right’s okay… judgement withheld until better photos but the outlook is optimistic…

  26. Genevieve Gourcuff says:

    Yeah I know it’s Roque – hence judgement withheld and outlook being optimistic for Julio to grow into his brother’s level of hotness

  27. Baby Freya (Mrs Arbeloa) says:

    I think the hotness ship has sailed and he isn’t on it. Poor lad, maybe he will grow hotter as he grows older?

  28. Brandy says:

    Yeah, I think Roque hoarded all the hot genes before Cruz 2 was even a glimmer in the eye!

  31. Moongirl says:

    Hmmm he need to grow into his face (and his ears) a bit but you never can tell!!!
