Pepe celebrates Spain's European Cup win in style!

As the conquering heroes, Spain, returned home after winning the European championship, Jose Reina took centre stage.

Reina gets the crowd involved

Explanation by a Spanish LFC fan: ..."It basically goes like this:

"The other day, I went to a restaurant and there was a very rude waiter. "Camareroooo (waiter)....."
then it's just a play with words, and phonetics.
The last one is a good example "Camareroooo....."
"Una de champiñones" (one of mushrooms)
(champiñones" sounds like "campeones")
campeoooooones, campeoooooones......
