    Is This The Greatest Accidental Soccer Goal Ever? (Video)

    Referred to by many as the beautiful game, soccer appears to be just that in most cases, but then there are those times when the beauty of the game gives way to a rather ugly/embarrassing moment.  This clip would be one of those times. This monstrosity of a goal begins when a player on the […]

    “Japanese Messi Boy” Is Amazing! (Video)

    I am not quite sure what is more impressive.  The kid in the video below, or the soundtrack that accompanies his compilation of incredible dekes and goals. Oh, who am I kidding.  The kid is obviously more impressive.  YouTube has labeled this kid as “Japanese Messi Boy,” and it is obvious why immediately after watching […]

  • Picture Of The Day: Safe Soccer?

    Picture Of The Day: Safe Soccer?

    It appears as though FIFA may be changing their motto from “Fair Play” to “Safe Play.”  And it doesn’t get much safer than Durex, although, I am sure the people at Trojan would argue against that.  Either way, extra time is always a crucial moment, and Durex wants you to be able to perform your […]

    Just about every person with a pulse in South America seems to watch soccer religiously, and now it appears as though the dead are getting in on the act as well.

    Check Out This Punch To The Face During A Kids Soccer Match (Video)

    It appears as though the parents of this kid on the red team have their child in the wrong sport.  If their little boy wants to chase down members of the opposition and throw blind-sided punches to their face, perhaps he should be playing hockey, rather than soccer. J.J. must have been so happy, running […]

    Look Out Below! (GIF)

    Some fans will do just about anything to meet their favorite sports star, including jumping from the stands into the players tunnel several feet below.  This woman was likely arrested shortly after “dropping in” on the action, but at least she was kind enough to avoid landing on any of the Argentine players.

    At times, front row seats at a basketball game may not be all that intriguing, and I guess the same can now be said about soccer games thanks to this clip of a little girl taking a ball to the face during a Belgian League match between Standard Liege and Germinal Beerschot. In true soccer […]

    Here is yet another case of a playful dog interrupting a soccer match by running out onto the pitch. This one comes from a game between Sky Blue FC and LdB Malmo during the Alanya International Women’s Tournament of Champions last week.  Bored with female soccer (or soccer in general) like most of us usually […]

    Zinedine Zidane’s Still Got It! (Video)

    At the age of 38, retired French footballer Zinedine Zidane may not be able to throw a headbutt like he used to, but it doesn’t appear as though his feet have lost an ounce of the finesse that once made him the greatest player in the world. Check out how he makes a mockery of […]

    A Knee To The Face Has Never Looked So Painful (Video)

    Now this is the type of shot to the face that you’d expect to result in the appearance of a stretcher on the soccer pitch! During Sunday’s Ukranian League match between Shakhtar Donetsk and Volyn, Luiz Adriano was on the receiving end of a devastating knee to the face from Volyn keeper Vitaliy Nedilko. I […]
