Two Iranian soccer players have been suspended from the sport indefinitely, fined nearly $40,000 each, and could face public lashings for a celebratory butt-grab after their team won a match last Saturday.
Soccer star Walter Pandiani of RCD Espanyol won a match against the Getafe football club this weekend with a last-minute goal. Naturally, the press wanted to talk to him immediately, but with no time to shower, Pandiani couldn’t stop sweating through the entire interview and soaked his dress shirt clean through by the conversation’s end.
If you think soccer is a low-scoring sport now, just wait until the robot goalies take over. This prototype of a mechanical goalkeeper isn’t ready for a regulation net, but is able to flawlessly protect his indoor soccer-sized goal from some pretty tough shots using GPS-like technology.
Next, they should probably program the net-minding bot to take dives.
A squirrel ran onto the field at a women’s soccer match this weekend in what was either an attempt to either make the team or ask one of the women out on a date. If it’s the former, he didn’t help his cause by running around in circles and then laying down. If it was the latter, well he was darn adorable, so one of the ladies might say yes.
The legendary passion of the European soccer fan isn’t just for the young, apparently.
This aged spectator at a Dutch Second Division (minor league) match was so irate that the ref had showed the home team six yellow cards in a four-to-three loss that he stormed the pitch with his mobility scooter and then twice rammed into the offending official. Checking out the low-speed assault below.
Is it the end of the world as we know it? Maybe not, but perhaps we're one step closer after the announcement that Real Madrid, one of the world's most famous soccer teams, has signed a 7 year old. Leonel Angel Coira will begin training with the team on September 6th. This is not a joke.
For many U.S. soccer fans, the announcement yesterday that coach Bob Bradley was dismissed as the U.S. men's coach was no surprise. The news of his firing comes a little more than a month after the U.S.'s 4-2 loss to Mexico in the Gold Cup final.
