  • Brazilian defender kisses angry opponent on the neck

    Internaticional striker Rafael Moura was upset about a collision with Ceara defender Sandro during a Copa do Brazil match Wednesday night. Normally, these types of situations can escalate to fisticuffs or words that can never be taken back, so Sandro attempted to defuse the situation by giving Moura a kiss on the neck.

    Though, this could have made things even worse, the surprising show of affection apparently confused Moura enough to make him immediately flee the scene.

    After Luis Suarez used the World Cup in Brazil as an occasion to bite an opponent for the third time in his career, it's kind of nice to see an altercation during a match in the same country end with a bit of tenderness instead of attempted cannibalism. At least someone is learning from Suarez's mistakes.

    Ceara went on to win 2-1, with Inter equalizing in the second minute of injury time before Ceara scored the winner in the third minute of injury time.

    Ashley Cole posed with his new Roma teammates as if he wasn't sure if he was allowed to be in the photo and the internet took over from there. So now Ashley Cole hovering in the background with his hands clasped behind his back has become a meme and no one finds it funnier than Ashley Cole himself. 

    Cole retweeted several of the photoshops doing the rounds, including a couple that called back to painful moments in his recent past. First, he shared one of him standing under the plane as the England team he was excluded from prepared to depart for the World Cup.

    Then he shared one that had him in the background of a photo of ex-wife Cheryl Cole with her new husband.
