These Soccer Moments Were Some Of The Funniest Moments We’ve Ever Seen On The Soccer Field

Soccer is called “The Beautiful Game” with good reason. The free-flowing nature of the game usually leads to moments that are as aesthetically pleasing as they are entertaining. A well-timed give and go. A diving saves from a goalkeeper. A curling free-kick that hits the back of the net. It’s all art.

Occasionally, however, there are moments that aren’t quite as, um, exquisite.

 1. Sometimes, when the referee doesn’t call a foul, you’ve got to find your own form of justice:

2. And even when the weather isn’t ideal, you’ve got to find a way to use it to your advantage.

3. There are times when a shot isn’t on goal, but it’s right on target.

4. And if you’re in the stands, you better be careful, or your snacks will pay the price.

5. Don’t worry, professionals also have trouble keeping their eye on the ball.

6. Even when they know it’s coming right at them.

7. When you score a goal and the stands look a bit empty, you’ve got to take matters into your own hands.

8. And when your goal scoring celebrations become too routine, you’ve got to find ways to spice things up.

9. There is such a thing as too much, though…

10. And you may pay the price for it.

11. The corner flag is often overlooked…

12. … But it can be the source of some unexpected action.

13. Referees and their invisible spray have become a part of the game that you don’t really notice anymore. Unless the ref is this petty:

15. Give ’em a break though… working that spray isn’t easy.

16. But it does make a good pro soccer player repellant.

17. Players don’t get their own spray but some of them find creative uses for drinking water.

18. If you’re a rabid soccer fan, you’re used to seeing jerseys being pulled and ripped, but probably not this…

19. … or this:

20. Sometimes you’ve just got to cut out the middleman:

21. When you’re watching a game at home, make sure to pay close attention at the pre-game action…

22. … or the stuff that happens on the bench.

It’s not art, but it’s definitely entertaining.

Dad Of Julio Urías Got A Tattoo Honoring His Son’s World Series Win

Parents always find new ways to be proud of their children and how to tell the world how proud they are. This includes Julio Urías’ father who recently unveiled his newest tattoo in honor of his World Series-winning son.

Julio Urías’ dad is showing off just how proud he is of his son.

Tattoo artist Andres Ortega Rojas posted photos on Instagram showing off the tattoo. Carlos Urías forever enshrined his sons victorious lunge after Game 6 against the Tampa Bay Rays while a tattoo on his left arm.

Rojas told TMZ that the tattoo took nine hours to complete and that is was Carlos’ first tattoo. The moment captured on Carlos’ arm is one that is etched into the brains of Dodgers fans. It was the first time the Dodger has won the World Series since 1988 ending a decades-long dry spell.

The tattoo is catching everyone’s attention.

People are loving the tribute made to his son with a tattoo. It being his first tattoo is even sweeter. We all know how much our parents are anti-tattoos so seeing this happen is extra touching. Julio is framed by the flags of the Commissioner’s Trophy in the tattoo marking what is clearly Carlos’ most proud moment.

The moment marks a culmination of a long journey to athletic stardom.

Julio first pitched for the Dodgers in 2015. The Mexican baseball player was called up to join the famed baseball team. Carlos and the family made a 13-hour road trip from the Mexican state of Sinaloa to Maryvale Park in Phoenix, Ariz. It was after that long trip that Carlos got to see Julio on the field pitching against the Milwaukee Brewers.

It just goes to show you that anything is possible and that, if you work towards your goals, they can come true.

Nike Signs This 8-Year-Old Soccer Prodigy At Younger Age Than Messi And Neymar

Nike Signs This 8-Year-Old Soccer Prodigy At Younger Age Than Messi And Neymar

Nike has long been known to scout some of the world’s greatest sports talents, especially when it comes to the world of soccer. It began with Neymar, who signed with the multinational corporation at the age of 13. That trend continued with Real Madrid’s Rodrygo, who, at the tender age of 11, became Nike’s youngest-ever affiliated athlete after dazzling at a youth tournament in New York.

But the bar has been raised once again. This time with an 8-year-old player who considered the next great prospect in Brazilian soccer.

Brazilian football prodigy Kauan Basile has signed with Nike at just 8-years-old.

Kauan Basile is just 8-years-old and he’s already playing for the Santos’ U-9 indoor football team. But now he’s just made history as the youngest player ever to sign a deal with Nike.

“I am very happy with the opportunity to play for Santos, as well as the contract. I like to play football,” Kauan Basile told Gazeta Esportiva

According to reports, the contract with Nike is guaranteed over three years, and there’s an option to extend it for two more. He’s now the youngest player in the world to sign with Nike. Even at the end of his contract, Basile will still be younger than both Messi and another ex-Santos kid, Neymar, in signing his first deal at Nike.

Messi put pen to paper on his first Nike contract aged 15, while Neymar was 13.

The kid is generating tons of buzz worldwide.

Basile’s agents, Mengoni Sports, revealed the news of the Nike deal with a proud post on social media. They wrote: “Today Kauan broke the record of being the youngest player in the WORLD by signing a contract with Nike!”

The post went on to add that “He is pure talent! He has football in the soul, in his heart and in his DNA.”

The sports world has reacted with excitement, especially across Brazil where football plays reach God-like status.

Football runs through Basile’s blood.

Like so many of football’s greats, Basile has the tradition of football in his blood. Both his father and great-grandfather both played professionally. His father Andrezinho was on the roster for Corinthians during his playing days.

And his dad couldn’t be more proud of his son going on to such major success, saying he’s ready for superstardom. He said: “He is a player with an absurd will to win. He has a lot of technical quality.”
