In September, the impossibly talented French attacker Dimitri Payet proudly confirmed that he is, in fact, a massive "dickhead:" “It’s one of my specialties,” he said. “It’s a little game. When I want to piss everyone off, I do it.”
I have no context to give you for this video, but I believe no context is necessary. There is no context that could possibly add anything to how great this video already is, is what I'm saying. OK, I'll shut up. Watch the video.

Back on November 24, 2017, Guadalajara completed a three-goal comeback in the Apertura championship to shock Pachuca in the inaugural season of Liga MX Femenil, the top-flight women’s league in Mexico. Key to Chivas’ triumph was midfield captain Tania Morales, a 31-year-old native of Guadalajara who scored five goals and two assists in the 14-match regular season to lead her club into the playoffs.
Do not let Borussia DOrtmund attacker Shinji Kagawa babysit your children. Not because of anything weird, but necause Kagawa will spend the whole night nutmegging your children until they are teary balls of sadness.
Watch Kagawa mercilessly nutmeg this small child until the child has simply had enough and bursts into tears.
I don't think I can say anything about Christian Pulisic that hasn't already been said. The kid is good. Just ask Real Madrid.
Barcelona-Juventus ended 0-0 and Messi only made a substitute appearance, but there was plenty of incredible soccer to go around. For example, in the first half Barcelona midfielder Sergio Busquets found himself being pressed by Juventus midfielder Miralem Pjanic. Did Busquets safely pass the ball back to a center half or his goalkeeper? No. Did he panic and hoof the pall up the pitch in the general direction of Luis Suarez? No.
Instead, Busquets calmly (and slowly) gave Pjanic the ol' Zidane roulette before (still slowly) skipping away and finding Ivan Rakitic.
Inter Milan can return to the top of the Serie A table on Saturday with a victory over Cagliari, an achievement heading into December that even the most impassioned of Nerazzurri supporters couldn’t have predicted. The hiring of Luciano Spalletti has been a masterstroke, and an absence of European competition has allowed the side to flourish domestically with largely unchanged personnel in a 4-2-3-1 formation.
