I don't know how soccer is played in Nigeria, but in the rest of the world, it's against the rules to intentionally kick another player in the groin, with cleats facing out, while the ball isn't in play.

Please make a note of it.

Was largely the wisdom of my office today - "he's done a Beckham".

To atone, he's got to score from a dead ball kick from outside the penalty box, when his team need another goal to go through to the Q finals.

Are the rules taken that seriously?  From the games I watched the diving and so fort were painfully obvious and so frequent it is apparently part of the game.

For kicking the dude, not cheating by duxup (2.00 / 0) #9 Mon Jun 21, 2010 at 02:02:09 PM EST
Stuff I've seen is pretty bad.  There doesn't seem to be much effort to cub the obvious diving, it seems to be just thought of as a part of the game.
