Worst throw-in ever? It’s at least in the top five

Little Luxembourg held Italy to a 1-1 draw in a friendly on Wednesday, stunning the Italians ahead of their World Cup campaign. It was an impressive result for the country of just over half a million people.

But unfortunately for one Luxembourg player, this will live on the blooper reels for ever and ever and ever:

He needed to put just a liiiittle more muscle into that one.

Pitch invader dodges security, scores full-body golazo

Yesterday’s World Cup qualifiers were so chock-full of awesomeness we hardly had any time to appreciate the more irreverent side of the beautiful game.

Luckily, today affords us that opportunity! And as always, the web hasn’t let us down.

Take a gander at the video of this fan tearing down the pitch during yesterday’s 4-0 win for Russia against Luxembourg.

With a move that would make [insert soccer superstar’s name here] proud, this smooth operator splits two would-be tacklers before dive bombing into the goal.

Worth noting: Fabio Capello appears to take the break in the action to do a little bit of coaching. Now that’s focus.
