    Vancouver Whitecaps’ Eric Hassli Scores On An Incredible Volley (Video)

    Scoring a goal against Toronto FC isn’t much of an accomplishment these days, unless it is done in a brilliant fashion similar to what Eric Hassli of the Vancouver Whitecaps provided last night. With the Whitecaps trailing 1-0 in the 91st minute, Hassli volleyed a cross from teammate Alain Rocha past the Toronto keeper and […]

    Israeli Soccer Team’s Trick Play Catches Goalie Off-Guard (Video)

    Those Israelis, always strategizing. Here we see a trick play on a free kick that actually doesn’t seem to confuse too many people but the opposing goalie, but I suppose if you can kick over the wall to begin with, that’s really the only person you need to confuse. The play starts with the kicker […]

    Footballer Zokora Metes Out Justice One Crotch-Kick At A Time (Video)

    Can we talk Turkish soccer for a minute? Perfect. During a match back in April, Emre (love these one-word names), a player for Trabzonspor, a Turkish club, lobbed a racial epithet at Didier Zokora, a footballer for Fenerbahce, another Turkish league team. Emre was suspended for two games for the offense, but Zakora apparently didn’t […]

  • Chicken Invades The Pitch During Wigan vs. Blackburn (Video)

    Chicken Invades The Pitch During Wigan vs. Blackburn (Video)

    Wigan Athletic and the Blackburn Rovers were only able to produce one goal during their EPL match earlier today, which is equal to the number of chicken sightings that their game produced. To the best of my knowledge, this isn’t the first time an animal has made an appearance during an English Premier League game […]

    Female Soccer Player Takes A Ball To The Face From Point-Blank (Video)

    There was no diving or acting needed here! During a girls soccer game, which according to the YouTube description was between Hutch and Valley Center, one unfortunately girl by the name of Krissy couldn’t save her face from this blast from point-blank range. The worst part of this entire incident is the fact that prom […]

    Fiorentina Coach Delio Rossi Attacks His Own Player (Video)

    With the NHL Playoffs well underway, most people seem convinced of the fact that the road to the Stanley Cup may be the most grueling in sports.  And while that statement is awfully tough to argue with, one could suggest that the road to the Scudetto in Italian Serie A soccer can be just as […]

    21 Hilarious Soccer Dives (GIFs)

    I love soccer. Always have. That’s why I wish the old European dudes who oversee the world’s most popular sport would make it easier for me to defend “the beautiful game” to the haters here in North America by coming down hard on dives. You see, it’s hard to make a case for the game […]

  • A Fan Fight From Saturday’s El Clasico (Video)

    A Fan Fight From Saturday’s El Clasico (Video)

    The Barcelona players and their fans have gotten awfully used to beating Real Madrid during La Liga action, as they had not lost to their bitter rivals in a league match since May 7, 2008.  Cristiano Ronaldo’s goal in the 73rd minute on Saturday would help Real Madrid end that streak of futility, as they […]

    Besiktas Fans Attack Galatasaray’s Emmanuel Eboue (Video)

    A frightening scene unfolded in Turkey on Monday, as Besiktas fans attacked Galatasaray’s Emmanuel Eboue in an act that they claim was fueled by the Ivorian’s on-field antics, while many others have pointed to race as the real motive behind these actions. According to Yahoo! Answers, the Turks were not racist towards black individuals four […]

    Futsal Player Shuts-Up Opponent With A Kick To The Face (Video)

    After number eight in white avoided a sliding tackle from a member of the opposition and slipped a shot past the goalkeeper for the goal, he probably should have just shut his mouth, celebrated with his teammates and headed back to his half of the field.  Instead, he decided to stick around and taunt the […]
