South African Soccer Player Mistakes Opponent’s Crotch For The Ball (And Kicks It…Hard) [Video]
Shot Misses Goal During Brazilian Soccer Game, Breaks A Window (Video)
Brazil has one of the more complicated soccer club systems in the soccer-loving world. You see, there’s not just a first, second, third, and fourth tier of club competitions. In addition to the national tier system, there is also an independent league in each individual state. And clubs will compete in both systems—national and state—simultaneously.
Why do I bring this up, you ask? Simply to explain that there are a lot of soccer clubs in Brazil, and like minor league baseball teams in North America, some of them play in pretty sketchy facilities—including facilities that have private residences and apartment buildings backing right up to the field.
Of course, that seems like a great idea, doesn’t it? To have an apartment building right up against a soccer field? Whoever owns the building could charge double for apartments facing the field. It would be just like those buildings right across the street from Wrigley Field in Chicago.
Only problem, of course, is that you’re going to get a broken window from time to time. And recently, we saw such an incident unfold at the Campeonato Capixaba in the Brazilian state of Espírito Santo.
After a corner kick, a player on an unknown team (sorry, I don’t read Portuguese, so I wasn’t able to sleuth it out) launches a shot 20 feet over the goal that ends up shattering a window.
Shortly afterward, the people who live in the apartment that just had it’s window broken appear. And they don’t look pleased.
Have a look:
Not a fan of having your window broken by a soccer ball? You probably should have thought about that before you decided to move behind a soccer stadium.
