Manchester City’s 5-0 demolition of West Ham at the London Stadium was a crushing experience for Hammers fans. The loudest cheer of the night was reserved for an appearance from high school student Peter Parker, better known as Spider-Man.
Spider-Man was felled in the penalty area, his tackler immediately pointing to the spot in a display of sportsmanship that’s rarely seen. But was it really a penalty, or did Spidey take a dive?
Here’s the latest from from the Qatar Stars League: Xavi Hernandez is still unexplainably good at football. The 36-year-old Catalan scored a preposterous volley for Al Sadd, the difference in their 1-0 victory over Al Khor.
With his entire being facing the touchline, the midfield maestro allowed the ball to run across his body and onto his right foot. He then somehow managed to contort himself just enough to direct a right-footed volley inside the far post.
