Bayern Munich defender Dante and Andrew Luck of the Indianapolis Colts have been swapping shirts ahead of the German champions' crunch Champions League showdown with Manchester United on Wednesday night.
Brazilian Dante uploaded a picture of the NFL/soccer swap on Instagram with a message in German and his mother tongue of Portuguese thanking Luck for the shirt and the opportunity to meet him.
Luck is on something of a soccer pilgrimage this week. On Sunday, he took in West Ham versus Liverpool in the Premier League, picking up a Hammers shirt with the No. 12 on it in the process (via The Big Lead's Mike Cardillo).
He's a big fan of the sport, having spent part of his childhood in London and Germany, and he flew to London to watch last year's Champions League final (per ESPN FC's Roger Bennett).
