Adorable Soccer Fight Leads To Tons Of Flying Kicks
Soccer players aren’t supposed to use their hands, and apparently that aversion carries over to brawls on the pitch: footballers absolutely love to weakly employ those flying ninja kicks.
Your latest evidence: leading 2-1, Votuporanguense’s number 11 broke free of the Fernandopolis defense and had a clear path to goal. But the keeper charged and took out the attacker, receiving a clearly-deserved red card. It was an easy decision, but for reasons unknown, an old-fashioned donnybrook broke out. And kicks (not punches) were flying.
I’m not sure who taught these guys to fight, but they must have played a lot of Street Fighter. Running away wildly while jump-kicking is a classic video game move. And honestly, it worked for a few of them.
And be sure to follow Fernandopolis’s number 5, who seems to be the main target of Votuporanguense’s assault. He gets some nice jumping-away kicks in, but ends of on the ground, being kicked while down.
11 red cards were issued for the brawl (not including the one for the foul), which lasted over 10 minutes. One injured player promised to file a police report. WAHHH. I was involved in a soccer ninja attack. ARREST THE SOCCER NINJAS, OFFICER!
