Funny Football Moments 2016
10. The Dancing Duo:
We start our list of Funny Soccer Moments 2016 with this picture. In the above picture we can see that the players instead of going for the ball, appears to dance. They find it more interesting to pose as dancers and also as football players in the ground. Tired of the game, they relax themselves a bit and opt for dancing out!
9. A cranky position:
The above picture in our list of Funny Football Moments 2016 shows how awkward two persons can get while playing the game. In an intense tackle by the defender on the winger, the two end up on the ground in such a cranky position. Wonder the position of the third guy as he is going to face a similar fall a second later!
8. The mighty kick:
No one would like to be in a position that Gattuso presently is in now. In a friendly between Italy and France, Zidane kicked Gattuso in his balls during a tackle! Although they both were after the football but ended up in this freakish position which might be hurting. Well don’t dwell about the aftermath but it is clear from Gattuso’s expression that he did not enjoy it a lot!
7. An Awkward Kissing:
Quite an awkward as well as intense situation, the following picture in our list of Funny Football moments 2016. In an important game between the two players. It is quite a surprise for the audience and also for those two players. It’s kind of cute to enact this gesture in order to entertain audience other than the game. These kind of kissing happen suddenly and people aren’t expecting these kind of actions.
6. Showing All:
Quite an embarrassment to the audience as well as the players, referees. This is the most repeated embarrassing moment in a football field. Opponent Team Players rips off the knickers of the other players just to save goals. I might say its for their defense but audience find it way more funnier than the defense. This action can result in many different ways if you think worst of it.
5. Keeper Own Goal:
Own Goals are an unfortunate part of football. Some are more spectacular than others, but don’t think any are as stupid as this one.
In Japan, the Minami goalkeeper, instead of throwing the ball to one of his own players, instead threw it straight into his own goal. Despite not being allowed to score direct from a throw, this goal counted, and the goalie was forced to suffer the embarrassment of picking the ball out of his net in front of thousands.
4. Referee falls over:
It is often said that referees become referees because they love football, but are rubbish at it. Well, this goes some way to proving that theory. We all love seeing referees falling over, but this is probably the best of them all.
He tries a little back-heel to give the ball back, but somehow manages to tumble over, landing straight on his embarrassed face.
3. Rest in Peace:
In this horrifying pose, people might think the former’s head has been crushed between the legs of later head. By looking at this picture you can say that the players are tired of playing the game and one of them is resting on the other. Also you can say that the resting one has given up the game by doing hands-up. This is the tackling moment for both the players while chasing the ball and scoring it.
2. Di Canio vs Barthez:
Not sure about this one in the list of Funny Football Moments 2016 but what exactly was Barthez thinking?! If hands are kept up long enough they’re bound to change their minds! Even when Paolo Di Canio was just two yards from him, he refused to put his hand down and actually try and stop Di Canio scoring. Play to the whistle Fabien!
1. Scorpion Kick Higuita:
The top spot in the list of Funny Football Moments 2016 is for Rene Higuita. Only Rene Higuita would do this. As the ball came in from Jamie Redknapp, instead of catching it like a normal keeper, Higuita chose to shake things up a bit, and did the now famous “Scorpion Kick”.
Football fans worldwide still try and do the Scorpion Kick to this day, and almost everyone knows about it. In a weird and wonderful career from a crazy goalkeeper, this probably stands out as the craziest .
