Don’t Torture Yourself Watching The Winless Lions On Thanksgiving, Instead Watch These Exciting Soccer Games

One of the great Thanksgiving traditions — other than your annual Turkey Derby — is watching American football teams you don’t care about. Typically, you couldn’t pay someone to watch a Detroit Lions game, but on Turkey Day it just hits different. This year the Lions are so horrendous that we at The18 recommend these soccer games on Thanksgiving instead.

Shaqiri Forgot He Was 5 Feet 7 Inches Tall And Crash Landed Into Net After Trying To Grab Crossbar

Xherdan Shaqiri had a hilarious fail during Lyon’s Europa League clash with Sparta Prague on Thursday when he had an unexpected visit with Prague’s net.

Shaqiri was streaking in toward Prague’s goal and just missed out on a close-range opportunity. With no way to slow down before crashing into the goal Shaqiri opted to pull out the old trick of hanging onto the crossbar to stop himself. This trick is quite popular in youth soccer despite every goal coming with a warning not to swing on the crossbar.

Diego Lainez Se Fue De Empujón En Su Regreso A Los Campos De Juego

Diego Lainez vive. El hábil mediocampista mexicano jugó hoy sus primeros minutos de la temporada 2021-22, en el duelo entre el Real Betis y el Bayer Leverkusen, válido por la Europa League.

La última vez que Lainez había estado dentro de un campo de juego fue en la definición del bronce de los Juegos Olímpicos de Tokio. En ese partido recibió un golpe en el tobillo que lo tuvo todo este tiempo fuera. Con el Betis, en tanto, no jugaba desde el 24 de mayo, hace casi cinco meses.

Americans On Opposite Sides Of Rare Tuesday Afternoon Europa League Match

There’s nothing quite like a Europa League match at 8:30 a.m. on a Tuesday between two Americans, I guess. Though not on the normal Thursday night timing, Celtic’s match with Ferencváros brought the same eccentricity you expect from a Europa League game. 

Humanity Hits All-Time Low As Czech School Children Boo Rangers’ Kamara For Being Racially Abused

Rangers fell 1-0 to Sparta Prague on Thursday, but the real loser was humanity. Rangers midfielder Glen Kamara — who was racially abused by a Czech player from Slavia Prague last season — was booed throughout Thursday night’s match.

West Ham Looks To Carry On Strong Start Against Downtrodden Rapid Vienna

After finishing last season in sixth place in the Premier League and qualifying for the Europa League, David Moyes' West Ham has yet to slow down. The East Londoners sit in seventh in the league and enter Thursday's matchup on the back of a 1-0 win over Manchester United in the League Cup and a league victory over Leeds. 

Only One Player Holds The Honor Of Scoring In The Champions, Europa And Conference League

A litany of players can make the claim that they have netted goals in the Champions League and Europa League. With the introduction of the Conference League the question must be asked, has a player scored in the Champions, Europa and Conference League? After the first ever match day in Conference League history, the answer is yes. His name is Lorenzo Pellegrini.

How Lazio Managed To Score This Own Goal Will Baffle Physicists For Years To Come

When people ask me why I love soccer, I usually talk about how no sport allows players the freedom of creativity like the beautiful game. Maestros can move the ball around the pitch the way an artist moves her paint brush. Registas can pull the strings the way a master violinist plays a solo. Finishers can bring a crowd to its feet faster than the Pope.

But also, I just love all the wacky shit that happens, like the bizarre own goal that proved to be the difference in Galatasaray’s 1-0 win over Lazio in the Europa League on Thursday.
