Great soccer ads

Posted on April 30, 2008. Filed under: Video | Tags: , , , , , |

Decided to find a bunch of soccer ads as there are some pretty cool ones out there.

First up is a new Nike one posted by ric-s on ballhype. Not all that particularly entertaining, just thought I’d add it cause it’s new.

Next is a really creative Umbro one. I won’t give too much away but it’s fairly well done.

An oldie but a goodie. This is a Nike ad from probably ten years ago. Funny to see some old faces that either haven’t been seen for a while or are still around but when they were young.

Then there’s the old pepsi ad where the Sumo’s play the pepsi all-stars (R.Carlos, Beckham, Raul, Davids, Buffon, etc.) for an esky full of cold pepsi’s.

This one below has Fabregas suited up to juggle a ball that’s on fire, while being alight himself. I have to question the point of this one but it did look pretty cool when he volleyed it into the net, haha. Found this one over at the beautiful game.

There’s another really good one that won’t let me embed so you’ll need to check it out here, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aqm5zavFlM0 to see it. It’s the Brazilian Selecao warming up before a game. Quality juggling and this is the long version, about 2.5 minutes.

Finally, last but not least is another new Nike one and all I can say is it’s simply awesome. Posted by MVNsoccer on ballhype. Enjoy!

Arsenal defeat Milan 2-0

Posted on March 5, 2008. Filed under: UEFA, Video | Tags: , , , |

Two late goals from Fabregas and Adebayor at the San Siro saw Milan crash out of the champions league to top off a very disappointing season for the club. They’re struggling to even make one of the four spots for next year with Fiorentina several points ahead of them. Video highlights below.

Good see Walcott ride that Kaladze challenge and go on to set up Adebayor. It’s refreshing to see a young player that will stay on their feet when they could easily fall and make a meal out of it.

Inter/Juve and Arsenal/Man U

Posted on November 6, 2007. Filed under: EPL, Inter, serie a, Video | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

So the big games of the weekend have been played and the battle for the top of the table fought. Interestingly both of these matches ended in draws and little ground was made for any of these teams. Inter vs Juve ended 1-1 with Inter retaining it’s lead at the top and Juve dropping one place to forth. Roma failed to capitalise on the chance and instead lost it’s place to Fiorentina by throwing away a two goal lead, a draw with Empoli the result. Arsenal and Manchester United remain as they were in first and second position respectively, although Arsenal still has that game in hand.

Rooney scored first (well really it was a Gallas own goal with little he could do about it) for Manchester United towards the end of the first half but the unstoppable Cesc Fabregas pulled Arsenal level soon after with a calm finish after receiving the ball near the penalty spot. Christiano Ronaldo looked to have won the game for Man U, scoring in the 82nd minute but Gallas made up for his earlier mishap by volleying in a goal which Van Der Sar seemed to have saved but the ball was already well into the goal.

In the other big match, Julio Cruz put Inter in front just before half-time, continuing his strange ability to consistently score against Juve. It wasn’t enough though as Mauro Camoranesi equalised in the 77th minute to snatch a share of the spoils. Both teams were playing fairly cautiously although it was clear that Inter was in control of the match, nearly scoring again on several occasions after the first goal. Raneiri made a couple of changes which ended up being the perfect tactic and provided the equaliser. Iaquinta and Camoranesi were brought on in the last half an hour and combined to create Juve’s goal. It seems that Inter will have more competition this year and the Scudetto won’t come as easily.

Julio Cruz goal, Inter 1-0.

Camoranesi goal, Juve 1-1.

Arsenal demolish Slavia Prague (UEFA CL)

Posted on October 25, 2007. Filed under: UEFA, Video | Tags: , , , |

Just a quick post with some of the best highlights you’ll see (if you’re into one-sided demolitions!) from the champions league this matchday. Arsenal ran rings around their competition to finish 7-0 with a brace each from Cesc Fabregas and Theo Walcott. The youngsters really proved what they can do.
