    Ouch! This Goal Hurts! (Video)

    Watching the opposition score a goal against your team hurts.  Perhaps the only thing that hurts more is watching the opposition blast consecutive shots off the face of you and your teammate before watching them score as you wince in pain. I couldn’t tell you exactly how that feels, but these two ladies could, as […]

    This Last Minute Stand By Beşiktaş JK Is Something To Marvel (Video)

    Three minutes into injury time, Beşiktaş found themselves clinging to a 1-0 lead during their Europa League group stage match against Dynamo Kyiv. A win would move them one point ahead of their opponents for sole position of second place in Group E.   With the final seconds winding down, three-points appeared to be within Beşiktaş’ […]

    Ryujiro Ueda Scores On A Header From 58-Meters Out (Video)

    If we consider a soccer goal that is kicked in from 40-meters out to be amazing, what words could possible describe a goal that is headed in from 58-meters out? Incredible?  Unbelievable?  Astonishing? I’m not sure any of those words do justice to Ryujiro Ueda’s header from 58-meters out, which bounced over the opposing keeper […]

Seconds after the game […]

    Soccer Player Punches Referee In The Face (Video)

    As tough as it may be having to break up a fight between two giants on skates, I still say that the toughest sport to officiate is soccer.  After all, soccer players tend to be loose canons at times, and you never really know what they are going to do.  One second they are rolling […]

    Luis Suarez’s Amazing Carling Cup Goal Against Stoke City (Video)

    The skill level and ease that Luis Suarez shows as he receives a pass along the wing, slots it through a defender’s legs and curls it into the back of the net is spectacular, but perhaps the most amazing thing about the Liverpool striker’s goal during yesterday’s Carling Cup game against Stoke City is the […]

    Trailing 4-0 in the 67th minute of their Copa Sudamericana match against Independiente Santa Fe, the players of Brazilian club Botafogo were likely praying for anything to stop the onslaught.  Their prayers were answered in the form of a lost dog that entered the field of play and didn’t seem interested in leaving. The players […]

    Cristiano Ronaldo Uses Karate Kick To Complete Hat-Trick (Video)

    Real Madrid continued their assault on opposing keepers on Saturday, and once again that assault was led by Cristiano Ronaldo.  The Portuguese forward entered the game with seven goals in his first seven La Liga games this season, and he added to that total with a hat-trick against Malaga, which he capped off with an […]

    Yoav Ziv Gets Red Card For Kicking Shoe At Referee (Video)

    It was clearly no accident when Maccabi Tel Aviv’s Yoav Ziv kicked his shoe at a referee during yesterday’s UEFA Europa League match against Stoke City FC.  With that being said, I would love to hear the explanation offered by Ziv to the head referee before he was issued a straight red card for his […]
