By now, you’ve all watched and read about the ridiculous snowstorm during USA’s 1-0 World Cup qualifying victory over Costa Rica on Friday night. To stamp their historic victory in soccer folklore, U.S. soccer posted a signed shovel by USA players on its Instagram account to commemorate their victory at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park.
The picture of the signed shovel was accompanied with the following message from U.S. soccer:
“The entire #USMNT signed this shovel after the game tonight!”
Much to Costa Rica’s chagrin, the Central American team plans to file an official protest with FIFA following their loss to the United States under the snowstorm, which they labeled as an “embarrassment.”
On the bright side, the game was entertaining to watch.
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!
