    Here Is One Barrier Franck Ribery Couldn’t Elude (Video)

    Poverty, a serious car accident, and an underage prostitution scandal are all obstacles that French footballer Franck Ribery has had to overcome during his accent to soccer stardom.  He has been able to hurdle over each of those barriers, but here is one barricade that Ribery was unable to elude. During a training session for […]

    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.

    Little Girl Takes Soccer Ball To The Face (Video)

    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 […]

    Is This Guy The Epitome Of Soccer Sissies? (Video)

    It is stuff like this that gives soccer players a bad name. Don’t get me wrong here.  I enjoy watching the sport, but there is only so much flopping and diving that I can stand to watch before I have had enough.  And after watching this embarrassing display, I think I have had enough. For […]

    Most soccer players wouldn’t even think about having an attempt on goal from 40 meters out, but most soccer players can’t kick a ball quite like Elano Blumer. The Brazilian international was showing off his range during a Copa Libertadores match against Colo Colo, as he let loose on a lengthy free-kick that whistled through […]

    Picture Of The Day: The Visiting Team’s Fan Section

    This picture is a rather interesting one from the days when French footballer Thierry Henry was playing with Arsenal of the English Premier League.  It appears as though Henry has just scored a goal in front of the hometown crowd at Emirates Stadium (the Stewards have “Arsenal FC” on the back of their jackets), but […]

    Sexy Body-Paint Ad Angers Vancouver Whitecaps Sponsors (Video)

    To sexualize, or not to sexualize?  That was the question that the MLS’s newest team, the Vancouver Whitecaps FC, were confronted with during a recent promotional campaign. While the fans were in favor of the sexualization of the team, their sponsors were not.  Leading up to their pro league debut on March 19, the Whitecaps […]

    Brazilian Soccer Match Goes On Despite Flooded Pitch (Video)

    It is no secret that the people of Brazil love their soccer, but exactly how much do they love it?  Let’s just say that a few feet of water on a soccer pitch isn’t enough to have them hanging up their cleats for the day. That was evident last weekend at the Estadio Jair Bittencourt […]
