It's normal to high five your teammates or jump for joy after scoring a goal — everyone has their own way of celebrating. These players took their celebrations to the next level and were quickly penalized for their actions.
Long story short: Belgium is lit.
Royal Antwerp and Tubize were playing in the Belgium Second Division on Sunday, and Antwerp were up 2-0. The ball went out for a goal kick. Tubize's goalie wanted the ball fast, but Antwerp's ballboy was either deliberately timewasting or being lazy.
So this happened:
Ballboy refuses to retrieve the ball, so the goalie gets it himself and throws it at the ballboy's head. pic.twitter.com/QMVO8lMuW1
Queretaro vs. Toluca in the Copa MX semis was a classic goalkeepers' duel, which is a roundabout way of saying it was a 0-0 draw.
So hats off to Alfredo Talavera (Toluca) and Tiago Volpi (Queretaro), and no one else.
Both players earned clean sheets, saved penalties and even both scored penalties in the shootout. In the end, Volpi made one more save than Talavera, and so Queretaro advanced to the final (8-7), where they'll play the winner of tonight's Superclasico.
16-year-old high school goalkeeper Reuben Nsemoh underwent a terrifying ordeal as a result of a concussion he suffered while playing soccer.
The sophomore ended up in a coma after being kicked in the head during a game. Check out the footage below.
The Borussia Dortmund-Sporting CP contest Tuesday was a very interesting match for a variety of reasons.
It was interesting because Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang threw a Sporting defender to the ground then chipped the keeper.
Tottenham Hotspur held Bayern Leverkusen 0-0 in Tuesday night's Champions League encounter in Germany on the back of some ridiculous heroics from Hugo Lloris in net.
The first half saw Hotspur attempt to take the game to Leverkusen, but the German club defended resolutely. Vincent Janssen hit the post for the visitors and Christian Eriksen's follow-up attempt brought a great save out of Bernd Leno.
