5. It is possible to see funny moments not only during the game but also during the practice. Look at Cristiano Ronaldo who is staying in a weird but funny pose during the practice. I’m curious: was he joking or was it a real moment during the practice? Such poses can be made accidentally sometimes as players can’t control everything during the game.
4. This photo is completely weird and very funny at the same time. It looks like the player is showering the blessings to Lionel Messi while practicing a step from the ballet during the football game. People may interpret such photos differently but the funny fact is that even the players from the photo have no idea about all weirdest actions they’ve done before.
3. This photo shows that there are players who can do anything for success. For example, on this photo the player wants to save the goal, so he doesn’t hesitate to climb up on his competitor which looks pretty aggressive.
This photo also shows a very weird position, as it seems like 2 footballers decided to dance on the field. So you see 2 guys who are players and dancers at the same time. Soccer fans really love discussing such things with others after games.
This position is truly bizarre, probably even these players were shocked when they found out the photo. These footballers are standing on that field because they are in the middle of the game, however, they ended up in such a weird position that may lead to some injuries.
2. This photo is so impressive! Football fans know really well that if Zinedine Zidane wants to get a ball that his competitor is owning, he will do anything to achieve this ball. Looking at this photo, it seems like this action will harm the competitor a lot.
1. Look at this extraordinary photo: a very famous football player Wayne Rooney is showing his respect to the field after scoring a goal.
