If there’s one competition that can challenge CONCACAF for zaniness, it’s the Europa League. Week after week we tune in because we know something crazy will happen. Thursday was no exception as the referees missed a blatant hand ball on the goal line in the match between Hapoel Be’er Sheva and Steaua Bucharest in Romania.
The back-to-back European champions were humbled 3-1 by Tottenham at Wembley in Champions League group play on Wednesday, and Dele Alli’s performance will be fondly remembered in London. But it’s Casemiro’s strange form of embellishment when touched by Harry Winks that’s got the whole world talking.
The touch caused Casemiro to lose his balance for an instant, but then the Brazilian continued to forcibly lose his own balance for what seemed like an eternity.
