    Roma Ties Barca With Florenzi Wonder Goal From Center (Video)

    Italian side AS Roma is currently tied with reigning Champions League title holders FC Barcelona thanks to this ridiculous goal in the 31st minute from Alessandro Florenzi, who sent in a long-range shot from just over center that lofted perfectly over Barca goaltender Marc-André ter Stegen and into the back of the net: Hat Tip to […]

    U.S. Attorney General Says We Can Expect More FIFA Arrests in the Near Future

    The joint investigation of corrupt FIFA executives being carried out by authorities in the United States and Switzerland started off relatively small. At first, all they were looking at were allegations of corruption in the awarding of the 2018 and 2022 World Cup tournaments. However, given all the evidence that has been collected since the […]

    Indi Cowie Is the First Woman to Complete a 3-Revolution Kick (Video)

    If that sentence doesn’t make any sense to you, that’s ok. I didn’t know what a 3-revolution kick was before I read about this either. Let’s explain that so we can all understand why what Indi Cowie did was so impressive. Essentially, it’s a foot-skill trick in which you take your foot all the way […]

    James Rodriguez Scores Two Stunners vs. Real Betis (Videos)

    Real Madrid made easy work of Real Betis during Saturday’s La Liga match-up, beating the Seville-based club by a convincing 5-0 margin. Heck, on James Rodriguez golazos alone, Real Madrid still had the upper hand, 2-0. The first of James’ two golazos came on a free kick from the edge of the box in the […]

    Neymar Wins $20,000 in Online Poker Thanks to Royal Flush (Pic)

    If you play poker and you’ve ever been dealt a royal flush, chances are it did not win you $20,000. That’s how much it won Neymar, though. This week, just days after he hosted his very own charity poker tournament at the European Poker Tour in Barcelona, the 23-year-old Brazilian soccer superstar was playing poker […]

    Lionel Messi Scores Two Free Kicks During Wild UEFA Super Cup (Videos)

    Tuesday’s UEFA Super Cup Final between Champions League winners Barcelona and Europa League champs Sevilla was quite the crazy affair, which saw Sevilla come back from down 4-1 in the second half, only to lose 5-4 in extra time.  But even before all of that madness, there was three free-kick goals in the first 15 minutes […]

  • Soccer Player Gets Butt Sprayed With Magic Spray (Video)

    Soccer Player Gets Butt Sprayed With Magic Spray (Video)

    For the past decade or so, we’ve seen soccer trainers run out onto the field and hit injured players (or players pretending to be injured) with some sort of spray that I guess is very cold and numbs whatever’s ailing on their body. It’s very strange, but that magic spray also seems like a very soccer […]

    Soccer Fans Brawl on Street Before New York Derby (Video)

    You’d think the New York Derby between the MLS’s New York Red Bulls and New York City FC wouldn’t be a very heated rivalry, seeing as how a) the NYCFC franchise is less than a year old, and thus, probably hasn’t had enough time to build up a rivalry filled with hatred, and b) this […]

  • Saint-Etienne’s Nolan Roux Kicks Ball at Ballboy’s Face (Video)

    Saint-Etienne’s Nolan Roux Kicks Ball at Ballboy’s Face (Video)

    I’m not sure if Saint-Etienne’s Nolan Roux was still trying to avoid conceding a corner kick, or if he was just frustrated by the fact that he had failed to keep the ball in play.  Either way, the result was not a pleasant one for this ball boy who was working the sideline of Thursday’s Europa League […]
