And amidst all the hurrays, sweats, and kicking of the ball funny football moments happen that none of us can ever forget.

The Japanese within the imperial court of Kyoto have been known to have played a game in which several people kicked the ball to each other. During the middle ages there were attempts to ban football in Europe and Shakespeare has also mentioned this wacky game in one of his plays. Later on, King James I of England wrote a book in which he encouraged Christians to partake in football every week after worship.

Then we have two players of the same team fighting, in this instance players from Newcastle. Lee Bowyer punched Kieron Dyer because Dyer didn't pass the ball to Bowyer! Both of them were given red cards and the hatred between them stayed. The next funny football moments is Massimo Taibi and his ridiculous failure after the easiest of saves when he let the ball pass through his two unfortunate legs!
