Spanish midfielder and current World Champion Cesc Fabregas said, “Like all Spanish players I am so excited to go to the World Cup in Brazil and these boots will make a statement.  I’ve played in evoPOWER since January and it is such a good boot.  We believe we can go far in the tournament, and I like that these colourful boots will accompany me on our journey.”

Argentine scoring sensation Sergio Aguero commented, “I am always happy to stand out on the pitch – usually I try to do so by scoring a goal, but why not play safe and wear an unusual pair of football boots?  Jokes aside, I love my evoSPEED boots in these crazy colours and I cannot wait to go to Brazil, I really believe this will be a big moment for me.”

Mario Balotelli of the Italian national team added, “I have to be honest, the first time I saw the Tricks boots, I thought the PUMA guy was mad.  But when I realised he wasn’t, I was excited.  The evoPOWER looks cool in these special colours – it is definitely unique.”

German winger Marco Reus said, “In the past I have scored goals with both the right and left foot, so who knows whether it is the blue or the pink boot that can help me score in Brazil.  The main thing for me is that I can help my team have a successful tournament.  It will be my first World Cup and I am always so proud to represent my country.  We believe in ourselves, and also believe we can bring that famous trophy back to Germany.”
