Even some of the greatest players in the world are made to look like fools at times.
Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi, Andres Iniesta, Alessandro Nesta and many more are given a some footballing lessons by their fellow greats.

You can add another unique highlight to Liverpool’s tour of the Asian continent. While Liverpool have been treated like rock stars no matter where they’ve traveled this summer, with the team being serenaded by tens of thousands of fans during practice sessions and Steven Gerrard regularly bringing fans to tears, this might be the oddest story yet.
While training in Bangkok, Liverpool defender Martin Kelly received a marriage proposal from a local fan. Now, Martin Kelly is a decent player, and according to a survey of the office, a pretty good-looking guy, but really? Martin Kelly? Of all the players on the Liverpool roster?
Now, we’re not the sort to tear a player down, so here’s to Martin winning over fans in Asia, but to be honest, we’re not entirely convinced this isn’t some sort of Brendan Rodgers mind-game to build confidence in the young player.
Either way, here’s to Liverpool’s newest teen heartthrob.
We are desperately trying to think of a time any member of the FOX Soccer team had an effect on a female like this, but then we’re not Steven Gerrard! It was all too much for this girl when the Liverpool midfielder walked through the foyer of his hotel in Jakarta, Indonesia.
Speaking of Liverpool’s tour through Indonesia, check out this video of fans in Jakarta serenading the team with their own rendition of “You’ll Never Walk Alone.”
The most surprising part? The video was recorded during a training session!
With a level of emotion and dedication similar to what you’ll find at Anfield, the song seems to prove the point that no matter where the team travels, they’ll find a chorus of fans to support them.
Brazilian goalkeeper Julio Cesar attended fellow countryman David Luiz’s birthday party and was sporting a Chelsea shirt. The only problem is, Julio Cesar is currently the keeper for Queens Park Rangers.
This photo has been circulating the internet and has even forced QPR to investigate the matter. Could you imagine Wayne Rooney sporting a Liverpool jersey or Steven Gerrard in an Arsenal jersey? It’s very understandable that both the club and it’s supporters aren’t pleased.
What’s going to happen to Cesar now - benching? Fine? Suspension?
