  • Corinthians Player Scores From Kick-Off

    Corinthians Player Scores From Kick-Off

    So should we consider this to be a great play by William of the U-18 Corinthians team, or a terrible mistake by the goalkeeper?  The shot is a good one, as he lofts it from center, right over an unsuspecting keeper and into the net, but shouldn’t the goalie have been prepared for this?  And […]

    The players from Stjarnan of the Iceland Soccer League have delivered some of the finest goal celebrations thus far this year, and they are not done yet.  First they gave us “The Big Catch”, followed by “The Battlefield”.  Now for their latest installment, we have a trio of celebrations from the world’s most creative footballers: […]

  • Referee Punches Player…Runs For His Life

    Referee Punches Player…Runs For His Life

    Being a referee in soccer is not exactly a safe line of work.  One mistake and you may very well find yourself running for your life.  This referee from the Chilean second division learned that the hard way.  So what was his mistake?  Punching a player in the face. Upon seeing their fallen teammate, several […]

  • Kung-Fu Kicks Becoming An Epidemic In Soccer (Video)

    Kung-Fu Kicks Becoming An Epidemic In Soccer (Video)

    It all seemed to begin at the World Cup final in Johannesburg, when the Netherlands’ Nigel De Jong delivered a flying kung-fu kick to the chest of Spain’s Xabi Alonso.  Since then we have seen similar incidents in amateur soccer games, and now during an exhibition match between Real Madrid and the L.A. Galaxy. Has […]

  • 9 Truly Unique Sports Venues from Around the World

    9 Truly Unique Sports Venues from Around the World

    When it comes to sports venues, it’s usually pretty cut and dry. There’s the field of play, the seats for spectators, some bathrooms, some concessions, and that’s about it. Even venues that are considered to have character (Wrigley Field, Fenway, etc.) pretty much follow the same formula. But if you search hard enough, you’ll find […]

  • Fake Headbutt Double KO (GIF)

    Fake Headbutt Double KO (GIF)

    We all know that soccer players can be whiny diving sissies at times, and the same can be said about their coaches as well.  This clip says it all, as a player and the opposing coach exchange a few words before butting heads.  At that point, it is a race to see who can hit […]

    When the Airtricity League XI took on Manchester United in Dublin on Wednesday, they found themselves on the receiving end of many highlight reel plays during a 7-1 loss.  However, they did manage to provide us with the game’s most spectacular play, thanks to Ryan Guy and his execution of the flip throw-in. It is […]

    Hey Japan – Get Your Own Goal Celebration

    We recently showed you the awesome goal celebration by the players of Stjarnan in Iceland. That performance was so creative, and it made its way around the world in no time at all. Here is a decent reproduction of the celebration, done by some cat named Tomoaki Makino of J-League side Sanfrecce Hiroshima and of […]

    Another Great Iceland Soccer Celebration (Video)

    The players of Stjarnan in Iceland are back at it with another soccer celebration that will make the sport’s haters consider officially crossing over and make the apologists weep for joy while holding one another ever so gently. But any soft moment that soccer usually elicits, this Scarface-ish goal celebration by the team from Iceland […]

  • Boca Juniors Goalkeeper Snaps Opposing Player’s Leg

    Boca Juniors Goalkeeper Snaps Opposing Player’s Leg

    We should warn you now.  The video below is not for the faint of heart. Broken legs and not exactly a rarity in the game of soccer, and while we have even seen goalkeepers suffer from such painful injuries, it is not often that they are the ones dishing them out.  But that all changed […]

  • Andriy Shevchenko Is A World Class Pickpocket (Video)

    Andriy Shevchenko Is A World Class Pickpocket (Video)

    Years ago most soccer fans would have defined Andriy Shevchenko as a world class footballer, and while that label has since passed him by, he still possesses some world class skills in other areas. With that being said, allow us to offer you this one piece of advice.  When Shevchenko is around, watch your pockets, […]

  • Norwegian Fan Invades Pitch, Hugs Zlatan Ibrahimovic (Video)

    Norwegian Fan Invades Pitch, Hugs Zlatan Ibrahimovic (Video)

    I think it is fair to say that this guy took the idea of a “friendly” to a whole new level.  FC Barcelona was in Olso, Norway for a friendly against Valerenga, and with the Catalans up 4-2 in extra time, it was the perfect moment for a love-struck fan to make his move. Swedish […]

    Italian And French Football Clubs Brawl During Not-So-Friendly Friendly

    The Italians and the French have never seemed to enjoy each others’ company on the soccer pitch, and that was evident once again when Sardinia’s Cagliari took on Corsica’s Bastia in what was supposed to be a friendly match on Wednesday.  Instead, it turned out to be anything but friendly as the teams from the […]

    Male Streaker With Fake Boobs Invades Soccer Pitch

    Spectacular goals and bone crushing hits are great and all, but there may be nothing better in sports than the sight of a female fan flashing her breasts.  After all, sex and sports are two of the most enjoyable activities for many men, so putting the two together is almost like creating heaven on earth.
