Olympic Results: Friendly Reminders & Unfriendly Roars
Ooh, heavens. Honduras just exploded with joy. Image: Stanley Chou/Getty Images.
We’re getting into the Olympic spirit, Kickettes!
Well, we’re making snarky comments about footballers in various states of undress. Does that count?

The power of Scott Sinclair’s touch was limited compared to the power of his celebratory roar after he came on and scored GB’s equaliser. Poor Tom Cleverley was in Row K moments after this photo was taken and it took him ten minutes to get back on the pitch.
We’re sorry for Switzerland, who now have to tonk Mexico to get out of Group B, but this photo of celebrating South Korean bums and calves is an effective balm. Special congrats to Jaesuk Oh, who has obviously been riding the hell out of the exercise bike.

More leching opportunities occurred in Japan’s 1-0 win over Morocco, when Otsu Yuki sought comfort in his shirt after missing a shot. He’s inexperienced at this so we’ll let him off, but for future reference, all players should note that facing photographers when revealing skin results in a much more satisfying experience for the casual observer. Cheers.

That’s it exactly! If you’re not convinced, gents, please note that a chiseled torso and hip-dip combo functions as an effective distraction technique from all manner of horrors – Neymar’s hair and socks for those too nervous to commit to tights included.

Diego Reyes (r) of Mexico reminds us of an early incarnation of one Cristiano Ronaldo. And before you get all cross and defensive, please remember how some things take more time to blossom than others.

Booed by the crowd and shoved over by the opposition every time he touched the ball, it’s no wonder Luis Suarez had a growly moment. We liked it.
Game day 3 fixtures are here, Kickettes. Exciting and we haven’t even got around to the women’s games yet!
