If you want to make it onto the Fox Soccer blog, there are pretty much only three 100% surefire ways of doing so, no questions asked (not counting, of course, anything outrageous done or said by Mario Balotelli or Sepp Blatter):

A) invading the pitch;

B) getting into a physical fight with a referee; or

C) scoring a goal on a scorpion kick.

Congratulations to France Under-21 player Alexandre Coeff, who went with option C against, sigh, the United States side at the Toulon Tournament, an international competition for under-21 sides. France won the game 4-1, and needless to say probably also recorded the goal of the tournament.

Cue to Arsene Wenger and Newcastle’s Alan Pardew frantically fighting over the young Frenchman’s signature!
