Don’t Say Puskás, Don’t Say Puskás… This Fantastically Unique Goal Is Certainly Worthy Of An Award

An incredible goal was scored in the Saudi Pro League on Tuesday. The goal was so spectacular that it honestly deserves an award. The exact title this goal deserves will go unnamed as I hate to admit that I have mentioned it one too many times. 

Suspicious Scenes As Club Wins Cup Final And Celebrates With Referee In Private Room

A strange scene took place after the Final of the Kuwait Crown Prince Cup when the winning team, Kuwait SC, was filmed celebrating with the referee in a private room. In a video the team celebrates with referee by throwing him up in the air, giving hugs and even kisses.

The Greatest Underdog Sports Stories That Won’t Get The Disney Treatment

Occasionally sport coughs up the sort of matchup that you cannot tear your eyes from — not so much a David vs. Goliath battle as it is a 50-car pileup on the highway. We’re talking “how the hell did they find themselves here?” sort of situations. 

These were the games that stayed with you, the games that meant something, even if you were too small to understand why.

Watch This Defense Leave Its Goalkeeper For Dead To Face 5 Attackers At Once In Mad Scramble

A goalkeeper from the Indian Super League won’t be thanking his teammates anytime soon after they practically left him to the wolves during Friday’s league game. This funny soccer goal is akin to what parents would expect to see when their 8-year-olds play.

Hyderabad goalkeeper Laxmikant Kattimani tried everything in his power to ensure his side went into halftime with the lead. In the final moments of the half, Kattimani’s side led 2-1 when all hell broke loose in his box.

Ronaldo Uses ‘Player Of The Century’ Speech To Warn Son Over Dangers Of Fanta Orange

Cristiano Ronaldo has been named the “Player of the Century 2001-2020” at the Globe Soccer awards gala in Dubai. Although the decision might seem controversial given the fact that Lionel Messi has won the Ballon d’Or six times over that period compared to five for Ronaldo, (1) the decision is totally in line with the 10-year history of the award show and (2) who cares — we all know they’re both really good.  

Son’s Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious Run Against Burnley Wins Puskás Award

Son Heung-min was awarded the 2020 FIFA Puskás award on Thursday after it was deemed his incredible solo run against Burnley was the best goal of the year. Ironically, Son’s goal wasn’t scored in the calendar year as he torched Burnley’s entire team back in December of 2019.

Iniesta Sends Another Chinese Super Club Packing In Magical Champions League Run

In the history of the game, no player has captured both the UEFA Champions League and AFC Champions League in their career. Wouldn’t it be fitting if Andrés Iniesta — a four-time UCL winner and the most decorated Spanish footballer of all time — became the first?

Harry Kane And Son Heung-Min Cannot Be Stopped Or Contained

Tottenham returned to the Premier League summit by following the formula in Sunday’s 2-0 victory over North London rival Arsenal in front of 2,000 supporters at Hotspur Stadium. Son Heung-min and Harry Kane combined on both the goals in the first half, and Pierre-Emile Højbjerg and Toby Alderweireld led the rearguard action to further stifle Mikel Arteta’s ammoless Gunners.

Ochoa, Jiménez And Chucky Guide Mexico Through The Fog And Over Japan

As the rain and mist rolled into Liebenauer Stadium in Graz, Austria on Tuesday, it was Mexico that moved like the onryō ("vengeful spirits") that originated in their opponent’s homeland before being proliferated around the world through the J-Horror genre.

An opening 20 minutes of Japan superiority was beat back single-handedly by Guillermo Ochoa, but the rhythm of the game slowly changed in Mexico’s favor and by the time Raúl Jiménez opened the scoring in the 63rd minute, you felt as though it’d been coming for El Tri.

But first, Ochoa.
