Video: International football - Cristiano Ronaldo with a karate kick, Liverpool ace with the best “own goal”

Modified 20 Mar 2019

Here is a round up of some comical events in this International break.

Liverpool defender Martin Skrtel was involved in what was a keeper’s nightmare. Skrtel back passed the ball to his keeper who tried to control it with his legs only to see the ball in the back of the net helping Greece to pick up unlikely 1-0 lead just before the half time.

Though he wasn’t really at fault, the Slovakia defender scored what is surely the comedy own goal of the night.

In other news, an angry Cristiano Ronaldo almost hit an Israeli player during Portugal’s 1-1 draw against Israel in their World Cup qualifiers match.

An Israel defender tried to stop the Real Madrid man by pulling his jersey, and when he lost possession, a pumped up Ronaldo launched a karate kick but fortunately it missed the player.

And before you leave, watch Karim Benzema and Eric Abidal have some fun on the eve of France’s 6-0 demolition over Australia.
