Manchester City just got pretty damn powerful up front. Not only do they have Sergio Aguero and Edin Dzeko, but they recently added Alvaro Negredo. And then they added more. The club has now added Stevan Jovetic to it’s already powerful stable of horses up front. They signed him...

Ever see a freestyle soccer juggler? Surely you have at some point. There are tons of soccer players who can do some really neat things with a soccer ball. But, this dude is something else. Meet Iya Traore. He is a freestyle soccer juggler that does all sorts of...

This wouldn’t be the first time that Chelsea’s John Terry pissed someone off and I can promise it won’t be the last. This time, he’s facing criminal charges over an alleged racist rant directed at QPR’s Anton Ferdinand. “I have today advised the Metropolitan Police Service that John Terry...

That is YouTube’s title, not mine. This soccer referree is…ummm….flamboyant? We couldn’t find his name (nor did we try very hard), but this guy might be more fun to watch than the actual game. This isn’t even a case of a guy being a little bit light in the...

Usually when OTR posts random soccer highlights, they were spoon fed from OTR’s brother Chad. And this is the case yet again. OTR admits that it has an absolute boner over Lionel Messi. This guy is just on a different planet. Sure, there are tons of great soccer players...

This is great. Thanks to our buddy Chris Tegley for tipping us off on this one (we saw him post it on Facebook, he didn’t actually tip us off on shit directly). Rookie goalie David Bingham from the San Jose Earthquakes scored a goal in his first ever match...

Lionel Messi has 27 goals in 26 La Liga games this season. He also owns a boat and knows some conversational French, so I think it’s safe to say he knows a thing or two about scoring goals. We don’t know whether or not he meant to do this,...

I was talking to my cousin the other night while watching soccer, and we both agreed that it was such a shame that Zidane had to go out like that. Why, in the last few minutes of your final international game (the World Cup Final no less), would you...

J.J. is a hell of a soccer player. Maybe too good. Maybe he’s so good that there simply aren’t many ways to defend him. Clearly, this kid thought something along those lines. Instead of tracking J.J. down and assaulting him with a vicious slide tackle from behind, he took...

This is pretty awful. How long will it take Marlon de Jesus of Ecuador’s Under-20 team to forget this one? You really couldn’t ask for an easier goal, and 99% of the world’s population could have probably made it. It would have bounced off of Stephen Hawking’s wheelchair and...

This is amazing. If you aren’t familiar with Ronaldinho, then type his name into a YouTube search and enjoy the fun. This was passed along from OTR‘s brother Chad (he’s everyone’s brother that works at OTR). Ronaldinho is working out with his new team, Flamengo. Not content to practice...

Ever heard of Edinson Cavani? He plays for Napoli in Serie A in Italy, and it looks like he’s a stud. He had a hat trick in a 3-0 win against Juventus and one of the goals was one of the best you’ll ever see. It’s called a scorpion...

Does Argentina’s Lionel Messi ever just score a boring goal? This guy is a true human highlight film. In this clip, he’s taking on Brazil. Brazil has been known to have a few decent players from time to time, so this is hardly a B-level Guatemalan team. One of...

After seeing the French light it up in the World Cup, the New York Red Bulls of MLS must have come away impressed by all of their players. Specifically, Thierry Henry, who they just signed to a multi-year contract. “This marks an exciting new chapter in my career and...

When people talk about the greatest soccer (futbol) players of all time, the names of Pele and Diego Maradona always come up. George Best might as well. But one guy that gets overlooked too often is former Dutch legend Johan Cruyff. Cruyff was an unmitigated stud and he has...

Spain had high expectations headed into the 2010 World Cup. They were considered the favorites to win the tournament and that’s just what they did when they took out the Dutch 1-0 in Sunday’s final. The Dutch were walking the line of fair play all game. It seemed at...

By now, you’ve surely heard about the misfortunes of Ghana in this World Cup. After a great run in the tournament, they were seconds from squaring off against Uruguay in penalty kicks. But then Luis Saurez intentionally handled the ball on the goal line to prevent a last minute...

For the first time ever, Spain will appear in the World Cup’s final four on Wednesday. It seems odd that they never made it this far considering all the talent they have, but it’s true. And they’ll be facing a German squad who probably view this stage of the...

On Saturday in South Africa, two world soccer superpowers will do battle in the World Cup quarterfinals. Argentina and Germany are two countries that always seem to have great sides, and this year is no different. And the two teams do have quite an international history. In Mexico in...

This World Cup match was brilliant. Very evenly fought. Two teams with completely different styles that were very difficult for the other to take down. Ghana has the big horses that will run and fight all day. They are big and pass pretty well despite their limited soccer skill....

Heading into the World Cup, Nigeria was considered to be one of Africa’s more heavily favored teams.  They lost their first two games to Argentina (0-1) and Greece (1-2), and tied South Korea (2-2) in their final match finishing dead last in their pool. The Nigerian president was so...
