Heartbreaking! Cute little girl cries over hearing of Neymar’s injury

Be honest, when you heard that Brazil’s talisman and face of the 2014 World Cup 2014, was injured and would no longer be able to play in the tournament, did you shed a tear?

If so, you’re not alone.

We doubt you’re as cute and adorable as little Brazil fan Ana Bella, however. After Ana’s mother informed her of Neymar’s devastating injury and abrupt end to his tournament, little Ana’s eyes begin to tear up. Asking “Cadê ele?” (“where is he?”), she can no longer hold back the tears. Before you know it, she’s in floods.

We feel your pain, Ana. We all do.

Dogs. World Cup kits. It does not get better than this.

There are two things in life that everyone loves: Pups and jerseys. So what happens when they are combined? Cuteness overload with excellent fashion sense and country pride:

Designer Alexander Campaz has come up with 32 dog jerseys for this summer’s World Cup, and is using Kickstarter to help produce them for the world.

And these aren’t just any old doggie kits. They’re special, just like the pups that will wear them — because we all know dogs deserve the best of the best.

The jerseys include:

-Fabrics used on professional jerseys (because dogs are as good as better than people)
-Active dry mesh (because it gets hot in the summer with all that fur!)
-Polyester mesh sleeves (because pups need flexibility for play time)
-Unique designs (because even dogs need to look fly at all times)

Basically, every dog should rock one of these this summer. Just look how happy this little pup is in his Brazil kit:

Real life Air Bud? Dog scores in pick-up game

We’re not exactly sure where this video originated, but Argentinian TV may have found a real life version of the sports-loving family dog “Air Bud!”

As you can see, this mongrel makes an excellent far post run before flicking the ball into the net with the back of his adorable, furry head. Superb effort, a true poacher! However, we feel obligated to point out that our hero may or may not have been slightly offside here.

Retiring Player Assists Son For Goal In Farewell Match

After a career that included stops in countries as diverse as Italy, Spain and Turkey, Argentine playmaker Ariel Ortega returned home to put an end to a lengthy career, but not before passing the torch to his young son. Let the adorable-ness ensue.

Ortega, who began his career with Argentine club River Plate, was honored with a farewell match this past weekend. Former teammates and colleagues such as Romario and Javier Saviola took part. However, the real highlight was that Tomasito, Ortega’s young son, was included in the roster as well.

During the second half of the farewell match, Ortega found himself near the top of the 18-yard box while his son found an opening just in front of goal. Ortega passed the ball to his son, and Tomasito, with all the confidence of a long-time professional, slotted the ball past a diving goalkeeper.

The moment proved to be a bit overwhelming for Ortega, who began crying while embracing his son.

Here’s to a career just ending, and another just beginning.
