Joga Bonito Or Capoeira? Brutal Scything Challenge Answered With Kick To Chest

What does Joga bonito mean? 

Well, we can show you what it doesn’t mean.

Joga bonito usually refers to Brazilians playing the beautiful game beautifully, as only Brazilians can. Think 1970 Brazil in full flowing force or the 2002 Canaries zipping past all comers. It’s Pelé, Ronaldo and Ronaldinho.

But this clip out of Brazil on Saturday shows the complete opposite of Joga bonito, looking more like capoeira than anything else. 

Christian Pulisic In Middle Of Chelsea’s Insane 3-Goal Rally Against 9-Man Ajax

There’s something about Ajax playing against London clubs that makes for can’t-miss television. Whether it’s Tottenham’s remarkable last-gasp win in the Champions League semifinals last season or Chelsea’s Christian Pulisic teeing up Michy Batshuayi late in the group stage a couple weeks ago, Ajax has provided English fans with more than a few memorable moments. 

Should We Just Relegate Southampton Now After Pathetic 9-0 Defeat?

Leicester City broke the Premier League record for largest road win with its 9-0 butchering of Southampton on Friday. 

After one Leicester goal, Saints midfielder Ryan Bertrand was sent off with a red card. But how many goals do we excuse for being down one?

Jaime Vardy’s Foxes wasted no time scoring in the first 10 minutes just before the red card was issued. From there on, Leicester would toy with the Saints. 

Watching Managers Get Booked Is The Game’s Greatest New Development

Things are heating up in the Champions League (read: Real Madrid bottom of Group A) and there’s no surer sign of the increase in dramatics than managers getting booked. In a first for the Champions League, coaches can now be on the receiving end of both yellow and red cards from the match official, and although Match Day 1 of the competition came and went without history being made, Match Day 2 brought the moment we’d all been waiting for.

Only Thing Worse Than Hayden’s Red-Card Challenge Was What He Did Afterward

Leicester City was probably going to win anyway on Sunday at home to Newcastle, but an Isaac Hayden red card just before halftime all but ensured three points at the King Power Stadium.

Ricardo Pereira opened the scoring with a glorious solo run and Jamie Vardy netted twice as the Foxes ran away as 5-0 winners, jumping up to third place in the Premier League table.

Alexis Sanchez Scores With His Ass, Gets Sent Off For Diving In First Inter Start

Alexis Sanchez, lol.

Alexis Sanchez, the once-brilliant-now-enigmatic Chilean, got the hell out of Manchester with a loan move to rejoin Romelu Lukaku at Inter Milan. To say the former Udinese, Barcelona and Arsenal winger’s time at Manchester United was a disappointment would be like saying the Lizzo’s “Truth Hurts” is kinda catchy. 

But given a new chance with a new club, back in the league where he first became a star, Alexis Sanchez made a massive immediate impact, for better and worse.

Taylor Twellman Questions Wayne Rooney’s Commitment After Boneheaded Red Card

With last night’s 2-1 defeat to the New York Red Bulls at Audi Field, D.C. United’s chances of hosting a Conference Quarterfinal playoff game took a massive blow. The Red Bulls leapfrogged United in fourth place in the Eastern Conference with the victory, and any chance of a United win was effectively damned by Wayne Rooney’s straight red card in the 24th minute.

Real Salt Lake’s Mike Petke Absolutely Deserved To Be Fired And Now He Needs To Shut Up

Messi Slapped With World Cup Qualifier Ban After Bizarre Red Card

It was, if we’re being honest, one of the worst red cards ever given out

Lionel Messi was rammed into by Chile’s Gary Medel, who had been out for blood all match, and the Argentine merely held his ground. Nonetheless, Messi was sent off, just his second career red card since turning pro.
