Weekend Results: International Incidents


An eleven goal margin of victory deserves a special celebration. And Robin van Persie and Klaas-Jan Huntelaar certainly pulled out all the stops for their interpretation of Torvill & Dean’s ‘Bolero’. Image: AP Photo/Daylife.

Are you worried because you missed all of the important events from the weekend’s Euro 2012 qualifying games and random internationals, people? Well, fear not, because via our brand of smart-arse, easy-to-digest snark, you will be up to date within ten minutes.

Obviously not with anything remotely football related, but if you will insist on coming here…


Edurne: That’s Not Your Boyfriend


David de Gea’s girlfriend and singer Edurne during the presentation of the new season of “Grease” in Barcelona, Spain.

If you were David de Gea, you’d probably be wondering whothehell that fluffy dude in the purple t-shirt with his arms around your girlfriend is. Biologically speaking none of you readers actually are a multi-million pound professional keeper in the EPL, but don’t fret – neither are we.

What we can offer, however, is our proven knack for figuring these things out.


Iker Casillas: Just Because…

…we would’ve gotten the flags out too, had Iker Casillas chosen to stroll past Kickette HQ in his Speedo.

What did we do to earn this wondrous good fortune, Kickettes? It clearly wasn’t refraining from drinking for half an hour. That just led to disturbing hallucinations. Which scared us badly.

But not as much as this did.

Midweek Results: International Friendlies In ‘Not Boring’ Shocker!


And they say no-one learns anything from friendlies? We learned that Raul Meireles is significantly hotter than we first thought during his side’s game vs. Luxembourg. So there! Image: AP Photo/Daylife

With England’s game vs. Holland cancelled, we gave our UK office the night off. Apologies to anyone who may have encountered them in their local bar last night. But on the plus side, fresh restraining orders have been issued as a result of their behaviour and they won’t be troubling you again.


Xavi: Photoshoot Play Time

There are two clever lads, the Football Intruders, who travel around Europe and sneak into the training grounds of top clubs for a laugh. While partaking in a Bayern Munich practice session, Danny had a kick about with Bastian Schweinsteiger, Thomas Müller, Philipp Lahm, Mark van Bommel and compared boot fashion with Arjen Robben.

Their most recent victim? None other than the lover of bullfighting midgets, Xavi. While he isn’t typically a normal feature here, we couldn’t help but go weak at the knees when we heard him speak English. Granted he just threw the word “Okay” around three times (:39, 1:35 and 1:46) but we can’t help it, it’s something about  Spaniards speaking English that makes us swoon.

Why don’t ya take the Kickette Army with you next time boys? We’ll show you the proper way to pounce on unsuspecting ‘ballers.
