There’s so little scoring in soccer to begin with it’s hard to believe how often this happens: a defensive player, attempting to help out their own goal keeper, inadvertently scores a goal against his own team. But twice in one game? That has to lead to some nasty looks in the clubhouse afterward.
Watch below as the team dressed like referees is awarded two goals for balls kicked by players in white dressed like ball boys.
Not sure what the broadcasters are saying, but they sound pretty happy for themselves.
So, you’ve just suffered a horrific career-ending injury to your leg, you’re writhing in pain on the field, unable to walk off with dignity and now some doofus member of the stadium staff is going to cart you off the field on a stretcher. No, not the fancy American kind with the hydraulics and the padded surface. We’re talking the basic “cloth stretched over four pieces of bamboo” kind, like the used in WWII.
Well, it may not be fancy, but it will get you to hospital . . . eventually. Watch and share this soccer player’s pain and public humiliation.
We hope he makes a full recover so he can come back to the field and beat the crap out of the kid in blue.
Used to be that if you were a professional soccer player, all you had to worry about from opposing fans was getting punched. Now, as with almost everywhere else, things have gotten more sexualized and this game in Brazil is just one more example. Player tries to line up a corner kick when a fan runs out of the stands, grabs him from behind, grinds on him, then is pulled off by security guards.
The purpose of this act? Who knows! It’s freaking International soccer!
Oh, those wacky soccer coaches! Is there anything they won’t do to win a game, especially in the hotly contested Peruvian League? Here’s more on the story from The Telegraph, with video clip below:
Hijos de Acosvinchos were playing their rivals Sport Ancash when during a break, several of their team drank from water bottles given to them by coaching or medical staff with their opponents.
Hospital tests showed that the players had traces of benzodiazepine, a class of drug used to treat insomnia, in their blood. Shortly afterwards one of the players, the defender Andy Salinas, collapsed followed by three of his team-mates, Juan Luna, Martin Reategui and Luis Coello.
Television cameras captured the scenes as players from Hijos de Acosvinchos, based in the capital Lima, confronted the opposition, who play in the city of Huaraz. Sport Ancash went on to win 3-0 to secure promotion to Peru´s first division but their opponents have urged the football authorities to investigate before confirming the result.
Imagine Barack Obama playing a friendly game of basketball with some Republicans and getting upset about a hard charge that Rush Limbaugh took on him. How would you expect him to respond? If you said, “knee him the groin in front of everyone”, you likely voted for Evo Morales the President of Bolivia. As seen in the video below, he didn’t take it too well when members of an opposition party played rough during a soccer game over the weekend and he let them know it.
Note to self: Don’t player soccer with the President of Bolivia if you aren’t wearing a cup.
Okay, everybody makes mistakes, and jocks are no exception. We’ve all seen freak soccer goals that make you wince for the goal keeper. But the guy in the videos below, Khalid Askri, seems to have more than bad luck on his hands. In the first video hit initially stops a spinning penalty kick, only to walk away as it rolls into the goal.
To make matters worse, only days later in another game, he pretty much passes the ball to an opposing player right in front of the goal and then gets an assist against himself! He’s so frustrated that he pulls off his uniform and runs off the field in the middle of the game.
The real question is: after something like that could he ever get his confidence back to player soccer again? Watch both videos below. Ouch!
