Freestyler Who Nutmegged Kevin De Bruyne Also Took Out An Entire Youth Team

Football freestyler Martijn Debbaut went viral in June after a video was posted of him nutmegging Kevin de Bruyne. The freestyler and TikTok star has been taking the ankles and souls of his victims for years now and people are uncovering his older videos.

One video of Debbaut going against KRC Genk’s youth team is making the rounds again. Why this video is back in the spotlight is up for debate. 

Is it the hilarious reactions of the kids as their teammates get megged? Or is it the ridiculous skill of Debbaut? Hard to say, but easy to watch.

Corner Kick Routine Asks A Lot Of One Man, But He's Up For The Challenge

I don't think the game has a more audacious plan of action than the corner kick that's aimed at — rather than the forest of limbs and heads gathered in the area — a solitary loner stationed outside the box.

The ploy requires perfection on the delivery. If it's inaccurate, the opponent wins possession and the counterattack is on. If it's accurate but without pace, the opponent rushes out, closes down the shot and the counterattack is on.

It's Been 8 Years To The Day Since Robin Van Persie Took Flight At The World Cup

It's a little unsettling and depressing to think that, were things running as usual on the international calendar, we'd be at the start of the month-long carnival that is the World Cup. 

June 13 has marked some unforgettable World Cup moments in the past, but none more so than what transpired eight years ago on this day at Arena Fonte Nova in Salvador, Brazil.

57-Year-Old Gheorghe Hagi Is Still One Of The World's Finest Footballers

The greatest Romanian footballer of all-time, Gheorghe Hagi, has still got it — the "it" in his case being all-seeing assists that are weighted like californium and the ability to absolutely crack one at the age of 57.

On Sunday at Cluj Arena, a large crowd gathered to salute the career of the country's other favored footballing son, Adrian Mutu, as a Romania Stars team took on a World Stars side coached by Cesare Prandelli.

Marco Asensio And Gavi Turn On The Style As Spain Leapfrogs Portugal In Nations League

MALAGA - Goals from Carlos Soler and Pablo Sarabia earned Spain a 2-0 win over Czech Republic on Sunday, a result that put them on top of UEFA Nations League Group A2.

Last year's finalists dominated the game from the start and opened the scoring when Soler struck from close range in the 24th minute following a brilliant pass by man-of-the-match Marco Asensio.

Hulk Smashes 70 MPH Free Kick Off The Post Like Only He Can

Despite turning 36 at the end of July, Brazilian legend Hulk still packs as much power as ever, particularly in his concussive left foot.

Although the nation of Brazil is free of weapons of mass destruction, it still possesses the key technologies needed to produce nuclear weapons — the science is all stored in Hulk's left.

Freestyler Megs Kevin De Bruyne And Belgian Star Couldn’t Have Looked More Pissed Off

Kevin De Bruyne didn’t have the greatest week. For starters he’s gone on record to say he hates the UEFA Nations League calling the tournament “glorified friendlies”, then he and Belgium got embarrassed at home in a 4-1 defeat to the Netherlands on Friday and to top it all off a De Bruyne nutmeg video has gone viral.

Jesse Marsch And Leeds Escape Relegation Zone Thanks To Genius Assist In 92nd-Minute

The Premier League's relegation battle took another dramatic twist Sunday with Burnley's 1-0 defeat to Tottenham and Leeds United's improbable 1-1 draw against Brighton seeing Jesse Marsch's side climb to the safety of 17th while Burnley fell to 18th.

Elsewhere, Everton came undone at Goodison Park with red cards for both Jarrad Branthwaite and Salomón Rondón to finish with nine men in a 3-2 defeat to Brentford, meaning the Toffees are still right in the thick of it.

Des Moines Menace Crack SportsCenter Top 10 With Absolute Golazo In USL2 Play

ESPN's SportsCenter doesn't usually show soccer highlights — preferring to show incessant home runs and slam-dunks that look like mirror images of every other home run and slam-dunk — but when it does, you can rest assured that it's a 40-yard banger or impossible bicycle kick from range.

On Saturday night, trailing St. Croix 2-1 in USL2 play, the Des Moines Menace's Fernando Garcia got the attention of SportsCenter with a flying golazo from nearly 15 yards out. 

It came in at No. 3 in the Top 10.
