One of the most popular sports around the world, soccer (or should we say, football) is super fun to watch. And any soccer fan knows that the only thing more amusing than a sick goal is an epic soccer fail. Check out some great GIFs of what can only be described as total fails. You've never seen soccer like this before!
We're having a bit of an 'America's Funniest Home Videos' day here. First there was the incredibly painful faceplant compilation, and now we've got this kid getting smacked right in the face with a soccer ball by his dad.
Sports commentator and former soccer player Chris Kamara has a bit of a reputation for not really knowing what's going on, which makes sense when you watch this video of him not having any idea what's happening. He's at a soccer game, and has somehow failed to notice which player has been issued a red card and ejected from the game. Just a small detail.
At this point it would be safe to say that soccer will never be considered a national sport of the United States, but even as an American, one cannot ignore or deny the unique unifying power that the sport carries in nearly all other parts of the globe.

Sure, soccer has never really caught on here in the United States. But if there were more ham-handed plays like this, it just might. In this clip, soccer player Amir Sayoud attempts a penalty kick and falls flat on his face while doing so.
All of this medics' supplies fall out as he rushes onto the pitch to attend to an injured player. Luckily, it's a soccer player, so he's probably faking being injured, and the supplies were not really needed.
On Monday, a stray cat interrupted a live Liverpool-Tottenham English Premier League soccer match by wandering onto the field at Anfield stadium. The soccer-loving kitty spent almost a minute on the field before being caught by a member of stadium security and released back onto the street.
It appears that goalkeeper Virgil Vries of the South African club team the Golden Arrows actually moves his leg out of the balls way as he allows a soft back pass from his own teammate to go into the goal.
Fagiano Okayama defender Ryujiro Ueda set a world record for scoring a professional soccer goal from a little beyond the midfield line -- or 64 yards away. If you are wondering how a player could possible score with his or her head from so far out, the answer is atrocious goal keeping.
