One of the great cliches in football is that there are no easy games - wrong!
When Jordan played Kuwait in a Women’s Asian Cup Qualifier, it knew it was in for an easy game. Kuwait’s women’s team, for all its courage, just isn’t very good.
Kuwait, which played their first international game just three years ago in 2010, lost their first qualifier against Uzbekistan 0-18, so the 21-0 scoreline in this one shouldn’t have surprised anyone. However, watching the goals makes it even more apparent how thoroughly outmatched they look on the pitch.
Clearly, the Kuwait women’s soccer program is a work in process and we wish them all the best. But allow us just one suggestion: start by developing some goalkeepers, preferably bigger ones. Felt bad for the girl half-way through.

A referee of a German amateur soccer game confused goalposts in perhaps the most unique officiating gaffe we’ve seen in a long time.
Altona striker Patrick Westermann unleashed an excellent half-volley from 30 yards out, dumbfounding the Marschlande keeper who just managed to palm it away for a corner. Or so he thought. Unfortunately, with the game being played on an (american) football pitch, the ball rebounded off the goal and back into play. Mistaking the yellow upright for the goal’s crossbar, the referee amazingly let the goal stand!
Weird, but a lesson learned.
there are people who think kit kats taste good
