Welcome back to another look into what’s been making waves online in the last seven days.
We start with a story which shows soccer its very best light…
Following the horrific events in Germany on Tuesday when an explosion rocked the Borussia Dortmund team bus, fans rallied to provide Monaco supporters with accommodation so that they would be able to stay for the rearranged game the next night.
Truly, the beautiful game.
Flight Club Soccer Collaboration
NYCFC stars Ethan White and Rodney Wallace teamed up to unveil a capsule which celebrated the impact the beautiful game is having on sneaker culture.
Ethan photographed his teammate for the shoot of the new collection on location in New York City.
Who Did it Best?
Energy FC scored a goal the likes of which we’ve rarely ever seen before… the lesser-spotted flip-throw-in-bicycle-kick (if you’ve got a catchier name for it, we’re all ears!)
This has been compared to Sean Okoli’s scissor-kick for Cincinnati last season but who did it best?
How it Feels to be City
KICK released this video which showed just what it’s like to be in one of our supporter sections when NYCFC scores.
Filmed by @rrusseljr93, this encapsulates what it means to be at the stadium on gameday when David Villa nets!
Gio Reyna Golazo
Our U16s have been grabbing the headlines at the Generation adidas Cup in Texas this week – not least for this stunning free-kick from Giovanni Reyna.
Taking a Dive
Simulation is one of the beasts soccer is trying to slay with the testing of VAR technology but what chance do referees have if the supporters are getting in on the act too?
This Brazilian fans milks this contact for all its worth… deplorable!
On the other side of the fence, Jordan Morris deserves huge credit for his honesty in Saturday’s game against San Jose Earthquakes.
On a contentious call, the referee Ricardo Salazar initially signaled for a corner for Morris’s team before the Seattle man admitted that it came off him last and should be a goal kick.
A heartwarming note to end this episode of Trending on…
