Real Betis suck, are in last place in La Liga, and barring multiple, simultaneous miracles, will almost definitely be relegated in a few weeks' time. Paulão is a center back on that team. This is his story.
On Sunday Paulão and co. played Rayo Vallecano. They lost 3-1, and as you can see from the video above, it was almost all Paulão's fault.

Nike's 2014 World Cup ad campaign begins...

For my money, it's as good as the "Secret Tournament" campaign directed by Terry Gilliam back in 2002.  Though that one DID have Eric Cantona in it...

My kid's school played in the Class A (small school) state championships on Saturday.   There were down nil-2 in the second half. Here are the two goals to tie the game. They won in 2nd overtime period 4-2.

Write down this name - Lagos Kunga
He scored the first goal, and set up the second.  He's 15 years old. He played on the U14 national team.  He has an agent, and Chelsea has been in touch.
 
My daughter was at the game and said it was especially satisfying as the other team's fans were smug assholes.

Do most goalies have the leg to do this? Is it a technique thing? I know most goal kicks only go 10-15 yards past midfield, but punts do seem to go farther.

That Garrincha goal is awesome.  Outside of foot around the wall and inside the post.  Audacious to even try, although I know that team did a lot of that stuff.

Yeah, the "wtf" reaction of the Bulgarian players is great.
 
That Beckenbauer strike is also pretty amazing given that its on his weak foot, the keeper is pretty well positioned to that side of the net and still gets beat, and that keeper is Lev Yashin.

That should be a thread. I voted Robben but it was a tough choice.
 
A lot of strong contenders in that lineup.  I just couldn't get over the bizarre Adryan spasmodic flop several seconds after hitting the ground and rolling over, even if there was a foul originally.  So that got my vote.

Either him or Gonzalez are the most egregious but Robben's was the most important.

I think I'd go with Suarez, although that Gonzalez one with Wondo also is a real contender to me. In all the others, there's at least some amount of contact, however negligible (and in Ronaldo's case, negligible is maybe too strong).  It's only in these two where the guy chooses to do something card worthy on his own, then has the audacity to act as if the bad thing happened to them.

Gibraltar v Macedonia U16s.  Macedonia scores the apparent winner in injury time (1:31:38), and the players all run to their bench in their own half to celebrate.  Then all hell breaks loose.

Macedonia really missed an opportunity to immediately grab the ball out of their net and start going the other way again.

I don't think they had the opportunity to, as Gibraltar weren't back in their own half, so play could not resume
