    This Day In Sports History (June 20th) — Czechoslovakia Soccer

    It was on this day in 1976 that Czechoslovakia won the UEFA European Football Championship.  They would beat West Germany in the finals for their first ever European Championship title. The final tournament began on June 16 and consisted of only four teams: Czechoslovakia, West Germany, Netherlands and Yugoslavia (host).  Czechoslovakia beat the Netherlands 3-1 […]

    Mario Balotelli Scores Goal, Tiziano Crudeli Loses His Mind (Video)

    I don’t know who first came up with the idea to put a TV camera on AC Milan play-by-play announcer Tiziano Crudeli, but it really must have been a no-brainer. I don’t think any announcer in sports today gets as worked up and gives as many over-the-top reactions as he does. Of course, Crudeli’s allegiance […]

    A-Hole Argentine Soccer Player Gets Red Card for Animal Cruelty (Video)

    You’ve probably never seen somebody get a red card for animal cruelty before. Unfortunately, there is a first time for everything. During a recent fourth-tier match between Argentinian clubs San Juan and Belle Vista, a stray dog ran out onto the field, interrupting the match. Normally when that kind of thing happens, hilarity ensues. However, […]

    Amateur Polish Soccer Players Celebrate By Diving Into Puddles (Video)

    We cover creative soccer goal celebrations a lot here at TotalProSports. But whether they involve elaborate choreography, kung fu kicks, the removal of pants, or even ass-wiping, they’re almost always from professional leagues. And if there is a rare exception, it usually involved a really cute kid. We hardly ever see remarkable goal celebrations from […]

    Genoa C.F.C is one of the lesser known clubs from Italy’s top flight soccer division, Serie A.  Their last significant title came back in 1937, when they won their only Italian Cup.  And this season they finished in 17th out of 20 teams, barely avoiding relegation.  That would be one of the reasons why the […]

    Brazilian Soccer Fan Proves That Not All Brazilians Can Dance (Video)

    I always thought that every Brazilian had the inherent ability to dance…until I saw the video below. It comes to us via Sunday’s international soccer friendly between England and Brazil at the Estádio do Maracanã in Rio de Janeiro. With “Pump It,” by the Black Eyed Peas blaring over the loudspeaker during a break in […]

    Streaker Interrupts Germany-Ecuador Friendly in Boca Raton (Video)

    Nothing livens up a boring, pointless soccer game like a streaker. Am I right? Of course, the international friendly between Germany and Ecuador in Boca Raton, Florida, wasn’t your typical boring soccer game. There were actually a lot of goals scored. Germany had netted four—two each by Lukas Podolski and Lars Bender—by the 25 minute […]

    France’s Alexandre Coeff Scores Amazing Scorpion Kick Goal Vs. USA (Video)

    Chances are you’ve never heard of the Toulon Tournament, which takes place each year in France’s Region-du-Var.  The reason why you’ve probably never heard about this annual international soccer tournament is because it is not run under the supervision of UEFA, and it features players under the age of 21.  And to top things off, […]
