Russian youth soccer game turns into massive brawl

foxsoccer:

A soccer match in Russia was the scene of a violent incident that quickly got out of hand.

The match between Dnepr Smolensk and Lokomotiv Moscow turned into an all-out brawl replete with hay-makers and cheap shots. Just go ahead and watch to see the melee, and make sure to keep en eye out…

You’re only given a little spark of madness. You mustn’t lose it.

Football is a cruel game.

Just when you start to believe, when you think the impossible just might be possible, your soul gets ripped right out of your body, and you remember you have to walk home in a full Captain America costume. The worst.

The United States men’s national team loss to Belgium in extra-time on Tuesday was the most painful kind of torture. For 90 minutes, we watched Tim Howard save the USA time and time again, putting forth arguably the greatest goalkeeping performance ever at a World Cup, only for it to all fall apart in extra-time. Just like four years ago.

But after the heartbreak, there was pride and hope; pride that the team wouldn’t ever, ever quit, and hope that in 2018, this team will be even stronger, and encourage even more belief. One team, one nation:
