Sergei Semak, captain of FC Rubin Kazan, named his fourth child Barcelona after his team defeated FC Barcelona late last month.
“This is a nice way to make sure I never forget that memorable win. Additionally, it’s a bit of a tribute to the beautiful football they play,” Semak was quoted as saying by Sowjetski Sport.
What an interesting consolation prize.
Semak’s three older children are named Maja, Semjon and Iwan.
