World Cup: TV reporter Sara Carbonero grills boyfriend (and Spain's keeper) Iker Casillas after loss to Switzerland



Spanish goalkeeper Iker Casillas, coming off a shocking 1-0 loss to Switzerland, was already feeling bad enough. Then his girlfriend, TV sports reporter Sara Carbonero, conducted a live interview with him on the field after the match. 

Carbonero wanted to know how Casillas lost the match, asking "How did you muck that up?"

Casillas: "I don't know what to say. I don't know if this defeat will have consequences. The dressing room is fed up."

But it may have been Carbonero's fault. She was standing a few yards behind Spain's goal during the game,  and irate fans claim her presence distracted Casillas from making the save.
