    Russian Soccer Ref Attacks Player, Now Banned for Life (Video)

    When it comes to soccer, it’s not only the fans, or even the players, who sometimes go a little loco. Every once in a while, the refs lose their minds, too. And no, I’m not just referring to blown calls. I’m talking about referees attacking players. It’s happened before, and now, in Russia, it’s happened […]

  • Sweedish Soccer Keeper Nutmegs Opponent (Video)

    Sweedish Soccer Keeper Nutmegs Opponent (Video)

    Unlike the players, most soccer goalkeepers tend to work their magic with their hands, rather than their feet. So I guess you can say that BK Häcken’s Christoffer Källqvist isn’t like most keepers, as he recently showed off some of his smooth footy skills when he nutmegged Mjällby AIF’s Marcus Ekenberg during a game in […]

    Soccer Fans in Prague Get Pretty Worked Up Over the Prague Derby (Video)

    Bouncer Won’t Let Drunk Arsenal Player Andrey Arshavin in Da Club (Video)

    You might assume that a professional soccer player who plays on one of the biggest clubs in the English Premier League could get into pretty much any nightclub he wanted anywhere in the UK. However, this is not the case. Just ask Arsenal’s Andrey Arshavin. Actually, on second thought, don’t waste your breath asking Arshavin. […]

  • Mike van der Hoorn Scores the Worst Own Goal Ever (Video)

    Mike van der Hoorn Scores the Worst Own Goal Ever (Video)

    Own goals in soccer, or any sport for that matter, are never a pretty thing.  But there is something especially ugly about Mike van der Hoorn‘s own goal during a Dutch Eredivisie match between FC Utrecht and AZ Alkmaar on Sunday. I won’t even attempt to explain what van der Hoorn was trying to accomplish when […]
