Cristiano Ronaldo fights dandruff in bizarre shampoo commercial

image

Ever wonder how Cristiano Ronaldo always keeps his hair so perfect?

Well, aside from getting his hair trimmed and perfectly styled seemingly every other day, it seems CR7 is also a tenacious protector of his own follicles. In this advertisement for CLEAR shampoo, Ronaldo fights off dandruff attacks with the flair and elusiveness of Neo in The Matrix:

How great was that? Ronaldo sure showed those dandruff balls who’s boss.

And wait, there’s more!

CLEAR also released a behind-the-scenes video of the making of the commercial, which is almost as exciting. At the end of the video, Ronaldo says: “I love the shampoo, it is nice. And if you see the results, you can look for my hair and you will see why I have a beautiful hair.”

So there. Now you know.

Miralem Pjanic leaves half of Milan in his wake en route to solo golazo

image

Roma midfielder Miralem Pjanic turned in a late candidate for goal of the season Friday night, scoring on a scintillating solo run against AC Milan.

With the score at 0-0 in the first half, the Bosnian star took matters in his own hands, splitting the entire Rossoneri defense as if they were merely cones on the practice pitch:

Milan’s defenders then proceeded to search for their dignity for the rest of the match, which they would lose 2-0.

Too easy! Berbatov’s dream lob sends Monaco into Champions League

imageGetty Images

Dimitar Berbatov wants you to know he’s still the smoothest striker in the game.

On Sunday, the former Fulham and Man United man produced one of the most effortless goals humanly possible to give Monaco a 1-0 win over Nice, which clinched them a spot in next year’s Champions League.

No big deal.

Man City’s Emyr Huws strikes stunning long-distance goal for Birmingham

Man City’s Emyr Huws was taking a corner kick for his loan club Birmingham City when the ball was headed back out to him far up the sideline.

After getting away from one Middlesbrough defender, Huws had all the time in the world to figure out his next move.

With nobody else in any hurry to close him down, Huws could:

A) Send it back into the mixer, hoping a teammate could meet his cross for a header
B) Safely pass it to a teammate
C) Unleash a speculative effort from a good 30+ yards out.

Huws went with Option C.

FAIL! Fabio Capello names wrong player by same name to Russia squad

image"Wait a second…that’s not the guy! Is that the guy? Hmph!"

Fabio Capello is apparently still getting used to the Russian language and nomenclature. Because according to The Mirror, the Italian manager inadvertently called up the wrong player to Russia’s national team. Seriously.

Capello named 21-year-old Andrey Semenov from Lokomotiv Moscow’s reserve team to his squad for an upcoming friendly against Armenia, when he really tried to call up the more experienced Andrey Semenov, — also a defender — from Terek Grozny. Oops!

As you could imagine, the result of this faux-pas was highly amusing.

The incorrectly selected Semenov said he “was surprised, to say the least,” while Lokomotiv even published a press release on their website declaring the good news. However, it didn’t take long for them to find out this wasn’t, in fact, so. The Russian Football Federation quickly caught the error and apologized.

Poor guy. This is comparable to receiving a fake love letter from your elementary school crush (which may or may not have happened to me).

Marco Fabian scores wonder goal for Cruz Azul

Marco Fabian is a bad man!

The 24-year-old Mexico international scored a stunning goal in the dying seconds of stoppage time to lift Cruz Azul to a 1-0 win over Puebla in Liga MX on Saturday.

The goal itself was outstanding, but Fabian’s first touch may have been even better. Silky-smooth.

This is how you score on a slide tackle from 75 yards out

Just like they drew it up!

In an Italian fourth division match between Vigor Lamezia and Tuttocuoio 1957, Lamezia’s Domenico Zampaglione scored the only goal of the game via — get this — a slide tackle from deep in his own half. This easily beats the record for “longest unintentional slide tackle goal ever,” previously held by Karlsruhe’s Sebastian Langkamp in 2009.

It needs to be mentioned: this is only the second-craziest video to come out of Italy this week. The nuttiest can be found here.
