World cup madness special: Ultimate football fails!

It’s time to get ready for the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa. Don’t you just love the excitement of a world cup championship in the greatest sport in the world?

Hotfail will keep you entertained with funny football fails for the whole World Cup period, and we’ll start you off with a massive compilation of everything football is about. Just have a look:

THE AMAZING GOALS!
For every beautiful goal, there’s a weird one. Have a look at some of the strangest goals in football, acclaimed not as much for their beauty as for their clumsy importance:

 

THE INCREDIBLE OWN GOALS:
This is such a sad story, evidence that failing can be deadly. In 1994 Colombian footballer Andrés Escobar scored an own goal in the World Cup. You can see it below. Reportedly the goal caused some drug lords to lose a lot of money on gambling, as well as Colombia losing the match and being eliminated from the 1994 World Cup. Just 10 days later Escobar was shot dead by a killer who it was rumoured shouted ‘GOAL’ as he put 12 bullets into the very unfortunate Escobar. R.I.P.

 

THE CHANCES THAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN GOALS BUT WASN’T DUE TO INCOMPETENCE
Failing has no boundaries, and there is certainly no limit to the useless failing of these overpaid footballers. We’ll see more of these in the World Cup; chances so big even your grandma would score on them. These players wouldn’t score in a whorehouse!

THE PLAYERS WHO FAIL TO BE HONEST, OR USE THEIR HANDS, OR BOTH
This guy, you’ve probably heard of him, is participating in the 2010 World Cup – as a manager. His name is Diego Armando Maradona but some just call him God. Here is the Hand of God.

THE BONE-CRUNCHING TACKLES
It’s no coincidence that if you re-arrange the letters in ‘WORLD CUP’ you get ‘INSANE PAIN’. Or maybe not, but it would have been nice. Football is supposed to hurt; not only for the people watching.

THE SILLY GOAL CELEBRATIONS
Some players don’t know what to do when they’ve scored. They run around like struck by lightning until someone wrestles them to the ground. Others have coreographed the goal celebration down to the smallest detail, which is even more embarrassing. Just look:

THE CRAZY REFEREES
Let’s face it, even the world’s best referees have a couple of weird personality traits apart from never giving your team a break. Just have a look at this guy, the queen of them all:

THE FOOTBALL COMMENTATORS
Some TV reporters and commentators have a fairly relaxed approach to what’s happening on the pitch, at least most of the time. Others are just plain crazy, like this Italian, raised in the South American style of commentating:

THE FANS
Failing players, crazy referees, horrible own goals – no humans can be more crazy than the crazy football fan. Already, most eager football supporters are preparing their ears to listen to endless drum beats, whistles, flutes and other noises coming from the crowd. Some fans like to strip. Some like to fight. Some do both, and some just run on the field and live out their dream, like this hero:

THE ACTION-SEEKING REPORTERS
Some reporters are always looking for a sensational story. Some are just looking to get their pretty faces accidently hurt:

THE FAILING GOALKEEPERS
Every team has to have a man to guard the goal; the poor bastard known as the goalkeeper. Rarely the hero, often the person to get the blame. It’s hard to be the only guy using his hands in a game dominated by kickers. No wonder the pressure gets to them sometimes, and stuff like this happens:
