Spain defender Sergio Ramos again wore the white T-shirt in honor of former Sevilla teammate Antonio Puerta, which he had donned after Spain's Euro 2008 victory. Puerta was among the four names remembered on a shirt worn by Cesc Fabregas, who also paid tribute to former players Daniel Jarque and Miki Roque, and Spanish coach Manolo Preciado.

Puerta died from cardiac arrest at age 23 in 2007, while Jarque died at age 26 in 2009, one month after being named captain of Espanyol.

Roque died of cancer at 23 last month, soon after Preciado died from a heart attack at age 54.
