How to pronounce the names of the French soccer players
This adorable kid was such a fan of Argentine soccer player, Lionel Messi, that he made his own jersey out of a trash bag and marker. An image of him went viral as people spread the word to help him get his own actual Messi jersey.
Thanks to the Afghanistan Football Federation and UNICEF, he finally got a real jersey, signed by Messi.
UNICEF wrote in their Facebook post that it's important to bring hope to kids through sports:
The right to play and practice sports promotes the well-being of all children, especially the most vulnerable trapped in emergencies around the world.
Two men, Herbert-Gumbs and Mark Soto were arrested with enough blow last Thursday to frost a fu**ing ski slope—136 pounds to be exact. According to drug prosecutors the drugs seized could've been resold for as much as 3 million dollars.
Perhaps even more shocking than the sheer amount of cocaine discovered, was the decision by the two crooks to stamp some their product with "Messi," as a shoutout to their favorite famous Argentinian soccer player.
Herbert-Gumbs and Mark Soto each face four felony drug possession charges that combined could clock out at 100 years in prison.
Bayern Munich was down 0-1 in the half facing rivals Wolfsburg Sept. 22. Then they subbed in Robert Lewandowski.
The striker and captain of the Poland national team wasted no time in turning the tide. He scored five incredible, separately interesting goals in only 15 minutes of play.
It was nuts.
The last was the prettiest one of the bunch:
Bayern Munich manager Pep Guardiola could not believe it.
Technology is supposed to make life easier, and in this case, it only made things worse.
A TV show in Norway called “Golden Goal” strapped headsets onto some soccer players so that they could only see a bird’s-eye-view of the field.
And the result is absolutely hilarious.
It’s not exactly the most exciting game in the world, but watching them try to navigate around and connect with the ball is pretty entertaining.
The players stick their arms out like a horde of zombies and hobble around just as slow.
At one point the goalie just lays down to make it easier to block any shots, which was the smartest thing he could have done.
Way to use your braaaaaaains…
On February 14, Zlatan Ibrahimović scored a goal against Caen and then proceeded to take off his shirt.
The move may have gotten him a yellow card, but it also got him a lot of attention for a much bigger issue: world hunger.
The Paris Saint-Germain striker had 50 names temporarily tattooed on his torso of starving children around the world to help promote The World Food Programme’s initiative “805 Million Names.”
“If I could, I would write all the names of people suffering from hunger on my body. But they are 805 million. It is a disaster,” he says.
The WFP is part of the United Nations, and the organization reaches more than 80 million people with food assistance in 75 countries each year.
“I had a dream that someone could convey this message in a simple way. We thought of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who is always asked for his autograph,” said Marina Catena, director of the WFP in France. “So why shouldn’t it be Zlatan who has the autographs on his body this time? We’re proud that he accepted to convey this message.”
As a result of his charitable stunt, Ibrahimović is suspended and will not be playing in their game against Monaco on March 1.
