Cristiano Ronaldo throws a temper tantrum after fans keep chanting “Messi” at him

Cristiano Ronaldo was less than pleased after Al Nassr lost 1-0 to Al-Ittihad on Thursday. The result saw Al-Ittihad leapfrog Al Nassr to go top of the Saudi Pro League table and left Ronaldo in a sour mood.

The home crowd for Al-Ittihad found a way to get under Ronaldo’s skin as they repeatedly chanted “Messi” at him. The chant worked to great effect as the Portuguese star was kept off the score sheet and visibly annoyed.

At one point Ronaldo could be seen making hand gestures to the Al-Ittihad fans expressing his displeasure with their chants.

Teacher silences noisy classroom on the spot with phrase about Messi and Mbappé

I've been there. Trying to silence a bunch of raucous kids in a classroom is a Herculean task. However, a teacher in Argentina might have found a perfect method to achieve it. And she was generous enough to share her secret with other colleagues on a TikTok video.

A hint? All she had to do was mention Lionel Messi.

Charleston Battery might have the best jerseys in America

As one of the oldest operating professional clubs in the United States, the Charleston Battery had to celebrate their 30th anniversary (founded in 1993) with something special.

The club has entered a new era under the ownership of Rob Salvatore, highlighted by a move to Patriots Point Soccer Complex and the recent hiring of 2022 USL Championship Coach of the Year Ben Pirmann. These are exciting times for the Black and Yellow, and now the team has one of the year's best kits.

Phil Foden recreates Ronaldinho’s ‘Golden Shoes’ in ad for the new Nike Air Max 95

The first video in YouTube history to hit 1 million views was Ronaldinho’s “Golden Shoes” Nike advertisement. Back in the days when JogaTV ruled YouTube, a video featuring Eric Cantona and Ronaldinho broke the internet.

Fans, and 7-year-old me at the time, sat in disbelief as Ronaldinho would juggle a ball, shoot it off the crossbar multiple times and keep juggling all while it never touched the ground. I was too young to understand what special effects were, so I thought for the longest time that the video was real.

4th-tier Grimsby Town dump Southampton out of FA Cup with a bit of the dark arts

If you're a Liverpool or Chelsea supporter disappointed with the season, just remember it could always be a lot, lot worse — you could be a Southampton fan.

The Saints are at the bottom of the Premier League table with only 18 points from 24 matches. They had Nathan Jones as manager for three months. They somehow managed to reach the Carabao Cup semifinals before losing to Newcastle, but the lasting memory there is Jacob Murphy waving off Duje Ćaleta-Car after the defender's red card.

Little dog from Rosario puts on the greatest display of dribbling we’ve seen all season

When you think of the greatest solo dribbling performances in soccer Diego Maradona’s “Goal of the Century” and some of Lionel Messi’s goals come to mind. The best dribbling we’ve seen so far in the 2022-23 season has come from the most unlikely of sources.

South African showboating reaches divine level with an on-field prayer

This is becoming an annual occurrence. Every so often, a bit of "kasi flava" in South Africa goes viral and people go off with the power of a thousand Roy Keanes — "IT'S A DISGRACE!" "IT'S NOT PROPER FOOTBALL!" "I'D BREAK THEIR LEGS!"

No lie, this has to be one of the greatest assists of all time

For the game's great distributors of the ball, there's unfortunately no assist equivalent of the Puskás Award. But maybe we'd do well to highlight the year's best assist with the Pelé-to-Carlos Alberto Memorial Trophy or something. Basically I just think that Giannis Konstantelias needs some form of recognition for what he accomplished in PAOK Thessaloniki's recent Super League victory over AEK Athens. 

Rodrygo skill move against Elche reminds us of vintage Robinho at Real Madrid

Rodrygo is enjoying his football at the Santiago Bernabéu this season, and a beautiful set of skills against Elche on Wednesday sent us back to the days when another young Brazilian was mesmerizing the Spanish crowd.

The match was goal-scoring fiesta for the Merengues — they managed to score four goals in a league match for the first time since September while keeping a clean sheet. Marco Asensio, Luka Modrić and a Karim Benzema’s double lit up the world champion’s celebratory victory.
