Tuesday sure was wild, huh? CONCACAF CONCACAF’d the sh*t out of CONCACAF World Cup qualifiers for two insane hours. There was a lot to take in. A lot. Wacky own goals, rampaging ball boys and hugging commentators. And USMNT World Cup dreams dashed. So like Hillary Clinton after her election loss, let’s revisit what the hell just happened.
In a professional career that began back in 1994 with a Lazio debut as a 17-year-old and lasted until as recently as 2014 with Chennaiyin FC in the Indian Super League, Italian defender Alessandro Nesta spent over 20 seasons defining the center half position.
The 2017-18 season is young, but dribbling is a young man’s game. According to WhoScored.com, these are the 10 players that, on average, are completing the most dribbles per game (minimum of five league matches). While you’ll find many of the usual suspects off to a flying start with regards to ending defenders’ careers, there are also some of the hottest young prospects in the world here.
Brann and Kristiansund combined to score one of the most interesting goals of the season during the latter's 4-0 win over the former Friday.
There is a lot going on in this video, I am just going to warn you right now. Layers.
1. Long throw.
2. Goes through the cluster.
3. Bicycle kick.
4. Off the crossbar.
5. Volley into the net.
I gotta say, today was turning into a pretty standard Thursday.
Ronaldinho is playing in the Indian Premier Futsal League, and he is doing about what you would expect to some beleaguered Indian futsallers.
Here's a video of Ronaldinho snatching a man's soul.
ATTENTION: Ronaldinho is out here taking lives on the futsal court. This was just rude. pic.twitter.com/0YRHJeOogR

This list for the players with the most career goals in the history of soccer stretches from players who played in the early 1900s to the present day. Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi score at an unprecedented rate in today’s game, but there are those from history whose rate of scoring was even more impressive.
The Guinness World Record for the most goals scored in a specified period is 1,281 by the Brazilian great Pele, born Edson Arantes do Nascimento.
