The World Cup match between the Netherlands and Spain was playing on televisions in the Braves’ clubhouse and shortstop Andrelton Simmons was the most interested observer.
Simmons is a native of Curacao, which is a constituent country within the Kingdom of the Netherlands. He twice celebrated scores by the Netherlands by running through the clubhouse shouting “Gooooal!”
The Netherlands went on to defeat Spain 5-1 in a group play match.
Braves right-hander Julio Tehran also was showing his World Cup pride. He had the soccer jersey of his native Colombia displayed prominently in his locker stall.
