For Aston Villa, keeping the ball out of their own net has become akin to keeping an ice cube frozen in Hell. They were relegated from the Premier League after giving up an astonishing 76 goals last year, and they’ve now somehow managed to ship three goals to League Two side Luton.
The pick of the bunch was certainly Luton’s third — a calamitous own goal scored by Villa's Jores Okore. Under absolutely no pressure whatsoever, the Denmark center back somehow managed to cooly tuck away an opponent’s cross into his own net.
We love those crazy Leicester City lads. When they're not sticking it to the established order of the Premier League hierarchy, they're usually getting into a bunch of crazy shenanigans. Hence, we bring to you their new Baywatch-themed kit spot.
Once again, it is the spotlight-smitten Christian Fuchs who is taking the lead in Leicester's new video, essentially doing his best to be David Hasselhoff as he sets out to rescue the "helpless" Riyad Mahrez and Demarai Grey (apparently he did give some "Fuchs" on that day, #SomeFuchsGiven).
Nahikari Garcia is a name you most likely have never heard before, but trust us, you'll remember it now. Let's set the stage. Nahikari Garcia is the captain of the U-19 Spanish women's team.
Now, it's not easy being a team captain, especially at that age. You're expected to be the leader, a beacon of consistency and strength. You're expected to come through when your team needs you. That's why we feel really, really bad for Nahikari Garcia.
Barcelona used some rather unorthodox training methods ahead of their game against Celtic in Dublin Saturday.
The team walked out onto the pitch at St. George's Park expecting maybe some shooting drills or perhaps a little El Rondo action, only to greeted by the sight of a dozen human bubble suits.
That's right folks. The secret to Barcelona's success is intensive rounds of bubble football.
If you're a goalkeeper, getting scored on is not ideal. Thus, it follows that getting scored on by your own player is even worse. So in theory, the only thing that could be worse than an own goal would be if you physically threw the ball into the net yourself (this is really complex stuff, guys). But that's ridiculous. Nobody does that. Right? Right?!
“Our country is in serious trouble. We’re having people coming in through the border that are not people that we want,” says Donald Trump in an audio clip from the Republican presidential candidate that’s being used to promote this summer’s Copa America Centenario.
The images and text that go with the audio make the speech, for the first time, seem reasonable. Marcos Rojo, Pablo Zabaleta, Lionel Messi and Javier Mascherano are seen disembarking from a plane, presumably landing on American soil for this summer’s tournament. The United States is indeed in serious trouble.
