COIN became a virtual ghost town on Tuesday, March 31, as almost everyone was glued to the television to watch local footballer Juanmi play his first match for Spain.

“It was a shame the rest of the team wasn’t helping, otherwise Juanmi could have scored,” said Miguel Cortes, president of Peña Malaguistas del Guadalhorce ‘Juanmi’.
