Griezmann meets Godín and Giménez at the airport in a Uruguay shirt

Antoine Griezmann may be French but he has a soft spot for Uruguay, ever since he started playing for Real Sociedad. At Atlético too, he plays with some players from the South American nation, Diego Godín and José Giménez being two of them.

On Thursday, Griezmann went to the Madrid airport to receive Godín and Giménez as they returned to the capital following their qualification for the 2018 World Cup.

And what better way to welcome them than wearing an Uruguay national team jersey and a traditional Uruguayan drink?

Godín later posted a photo together on his social media account.
