    European soccer fans can be a very dedicated and persistent bunch.  Unlike North American sports fans, who would be more likely to give up on their team following a few seasons on consistent failure, soccer fans in Europe will threaten the well-being of the players and force them to surrender their jerseys if they feel […]

    Kid Gets De-Cleated After Taking Soccer Ball To The Face (Video)

    You simply have to love the toughness exhibited by the young soccer players of America.  Rather than emulating their professional role models by diving all over the field and wallowing on the pitch in pain at every opportunity, they often find themselves playing through the minor injuries they encounter, as they appear to be much […]

    With the start of the EURO 2012 tournament right around the corner, Nike Football has continued to move forward with their “My Time Is Now” campaign.  Their latest stop has taken them to a barbershop in Paris, where Manchester City’s Mario Balotelli decided to try on a few hairdos as he looks to represent his Italian […]

    Cristiano Ronaldo Tells CNN He Is Better Than Lionel Messi (Video)

    It the eyes of most, there appears to be little debate as to who the better soccer player is between Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo and Barcelona’s Lionel Messi.  Messi has won five La Liga titles to Ronaldo’s four league titles (three in England and one in Spain), and three UEFA Champions League titles to Ronaldo’s […]

    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)

    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 […]
