Roberto Carlos gets a banana thrown at him during a football match. The Brazilian legend was so mad that he walked off the pitch.
This is the second time that Roberto Carlos was a subject of a racist attack in Russia.
This is where the World Cup is going to take place in 7 years.
1973, The Dutch Grand Prix. A car crash left british driver Roger Williamson trapped in his overturned burning car. David Purley, abandoned his won race, runs across the track in a desperate attempt to get his countrymen out of his burning vehicle.
Purley’s were in vain. Extinguishing the flames and turning the car upright was just too much to ask from one man.
You can really feel David Purley’s frustration and hopelessness during his solo heroic attempt. As nearby track marshals just stood and watched as they weren’t properly trained or equipped to deal with the situation.
He actually heard Williamson crying for help when he first got to the car. And the sad thing is that Roger Williamson actually died from asphyxiation.
I can’t believe that the linesman didn’t see the ball actually hitting the back of the net.
Start watching at the 1:10 mark.

Tonight at Wembley Stadium 18:45 GMT (21:45 Kuwait Time), The most important game of the season is going to take place between Barcelona FC and Manchester United. 2 years ago both teams also met at the final of this competition and Barcelona left victorious back then wining 2-0. Goals by Samuel Eto and Lionel Messi secured the title for Barcelona.
Will it be that easy for Barcelona this time? or will Manchester United prove to be a worthy title contender and give us and excellent game tonight. Either way, no football enthusiast will miss the match tonight.
Tonight’s game between Barcelona and Real Madrid for a spot in the UEFA Champions League final is going to be full of drama no doubt. But how much drama?
Football in general is know for its theatrics and “simulation” but barcelona take it a bit too far when they play one of the better teams.
You can say what you want about Pepe’s challenge on Alves but there was intention to hurt him. A red card for me.
really hope we see a good game tonight and Mourinho opens up the field and see a fast-paced game.
