If you follow the news even remotely, you probably heard about the current crisis in Bosnia-Herzegovina. Bosnia’s government recently said that over one million people, a quarter of the country’s population, have been affected by a historical flood that has already destroyed over 100,000 homes and cost the lives of more than 40 people.

In response to the natural disaster, Bosnia international and Roma midfielder Miralem Pjanic is doing his best to help out. According to Bosnian newspaper Avaz, Pjanic visited Sarajevo on Monday evening, and emptied the shelves of the very first pharmacy he came across, buying up the entire stock of medical supplies to give out to those in need.

According to the article (translated by Google Chrome), Pjanic told reporters, “I sympathize with the misfortune that has befallen our nation.”

What an amazing guy. Our thoughts and prayers here at FOX Soccer are also with those affected by the flood, not just in Bosnia but all the Balkan countries.

Cue the Borat jokes, everybody!


Field conditions were comically bad over at a league match in Kazakhstan this week, so bad that one corner was completely under water.

However, as you can see the players still had to obey the laws of the game, and a routine corner kick instantly became a comedy routine:

First, #22 tries to sneak in the first ever underhand-corner-throw-in, before he gets chided by the ref. He then calls over his buddy for an ingenius 2-man indirect corner kick that surprisingly works rather well. Lastly, the ball ominously floats towards the same corner, which would’ve made this video 100 times better, but this time the ball takes a plunge before it reaches out of bounds!

Jagshemash!
