Foreign soccer brawls are some of most ruthless and best sports fights you will ever see. Soccer players are a special kind of crazy where they mostly play the victims and run around without any real form of protection. So when things jump off, they seemingly come out of nowhere. Like this guy who delivers a flying kick to the chest of a guy involved in this fight.
Coritiba striker Joel scored a goal versus Sao Paulo in Brazil on Wednesday night and decided to celebrate by hurtling a fence directly into a massive hole.
You can see a well-dressed man clearly waving his hands trying to warn Joel against jumping the fence. My only question is, why in the world is there a giant ditch directly next to the pitch? Seems a touch unsafe. Then again, it is in Brazil.
He managed to climb out of the ditch mostly unscathed, if a bit shaken up, and Coritiba ended up winning 3-1. Joel had two goals on the evening.
City have won two of the past three EPL titles. But that success has not translated in Europe. The team has two group stage exits and a round of 16 departure over the same span. Conceding those late points could prove critical in what could be a tough group. Bayern coach Pep Guardiola liked it.
If you didn’t watch the World Cup, then you should have been at Sun Life Stadium on Friday night to watch the friendly between Colombia and Brazil. 73,429 people showed up to see Neymar score the game-winner in the 83rd on a free kick. I have no clue how the soccer guys would describe this goal, but I would say it was a well placed bullet in the top right corner of the goal. Whatever the call may be, spectacular goal nonetheless.
It was his 36th international goal and his first wearing the captain’s armband for the senior squad.
Wayne Routledge put Swansea City ahead 2-0 against West Brom Saturday in the Premier League with this spectuclarly athletic volley. Sure the attempted clearance by Craig Dawson went right to him, but whatever. The only other guy you could think of pulling off a goal like this is Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
