Bichote: James Rodríguez Se Tiñó El Cabello A Lo Karol G

Más allá de su reciente regreso a la Selección de Colombia, hay poco fútbol en la vida de James Rodríguez por estos días. El mediocampista del Al-Rayyan, en Catar, está suspendido por insultar a un árbitro luego de una falta que le cometieron y en la sección de noticias de los portales noticiosos su nombre solo hace ruido en las columnas de chisme. Desde los rumores a que era el rey de la fiesta en el Bayern Munich a su nuevo look de pelo calipso, similar al de Karol G, la cantante con quien la prensa rosa lo vincula románticamente.

Last Week Was Great If You Are A Fan Of Outrageous Own Goals

Often called "The World's Game," soccer is a ubiquitous sport that is often loved for its distinct regional flavor. Brazilians love to dribble, Englishmen relish a crunching tackle and the Italians always prize their gamesmanship.

Fans from all of these countries can appreciate — in varying degrees — a fingertip save, a great dribbling move or a top-corner goal. The responses to those plays sometimes differ, but few events in a match can elicit the type of feelings that consistently follow an absurd own goal.

Late Own Goal Sees Croatia Reach World Cup Finals At Russia’s Expense

SPLIT, Croatia - Croatia clinched an automatic berth in next year's World Cup finals in dramatic fashion as a late Fyodor Kudryashov own goal gave them a 1-0 home win over Russia in their crunch Group D qualifier on Sunday.

Croatia, the 2018 World Cup runners-up, jumped above Russia to top the standings on 23 points from 10 games, one more than the second-placed Russians who will head into the March playoffs.

Berhalter Trusted His Depth Vs. Panama — Too Bad That “Depth” Was As Deep As A Kiddie Pool

The “Berhalter Out” group of USMNT fans had a field day Sunday night watching the U.S. fall to Panama 1-0 at the Estadio Rommel Fernández. The performance from Gregg Berhalter’s team was one of the most uninspiring from an American side since four years ago to the day when the Americans lost to Trinidad and Tobago 2-1. 

The USMNT failed to register a single shot on target as Panama got its first ever victory against the U.S. during World Cup qualifying. The five total shots from the U.S. was lowest number in the team's last 28 World Cup qualifiers.

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.

Look Away USMNT Fans, Jack Grealish Just Stole Tyler Adams’ Lunch Money And Left Him For Dead

Manchester City and RB Leipzig played the most thrilling game to open up the 2021-22 Champions League season with a nine-goal thriller that saw City win 6-3. American fans won’t want to talk about the Jack Grealish vs Tyler Adams moment for City’s fourth goal.

Adams was caught ball watching and far too lackadaisical tracking back to get to a ball in his final third. His slowness allowed Grealish to pick up the ball and proceed to do horrible things to the American. Close your eyes USMNT fans, Adams is about to get murdered.

Dang It Honduras, It Should’ve Been The USMNT Losing To A Team That Didn’t Register A Shot On Target

Honduras snatched Concacaf’s final spot at the Olympics away from the USMNT in March. Four months later, Los Catrachos did the USMNT proud by dominating a game against Romania and still finding an incredible way to lose 1-0. I’m sure that USMNT players are punching the air while watching the Honduras vs Romania highlights.

Let me remind you why the USMNT isn’t at the Olympics.

Ghana Defender Scores Two Own Goals To Foil The Most Blatant Match Fixing Attempt Ever Seen

A game in Ghana’s Premier League suffered the most blatant match fixing the soccer world has ever seen. If you’re going to cheat, at least be subtle about it. The Ghana match fixing seems to be fixated around one team, Inter Allies.

Inter Allies sits in last place after 34 games, 14 points astray from the next closest team. It appears that the players on Inter Allies have been betting on the final scores for some of their games in an attempt to get more money.

Rating All Nine Own Goals At Euro 2020 So Far Based On How Awful They Were

If it seems like there have been a lot of own goals during Euro 2020, it's because they have been occurring at a rate unlike anything seen at an international tournament before.

The first European Championship was contested in 1960, and in the 15 tournaments up to now, there have been nine own goals. Through the first 41 matches at this summer's European Championship there have been nine own goals.
