Very Embarrassing Soccer Goal

A Hot Cup has never really been one to embrace soccer. We prefer scoring in our sports, with flopping kept to a minimum. However, this play's sneakiness makes it worthy of this blog.

Mallorca player Gonzalo Castro misses a difficult shot, and then uses said flopping to his advantage. After pretending to be hurt and winded and kneeling out of bounds, Castro scores an easy goal when Real Sociedad goalkeeper Enaut Zubikarai casually tosses the ball out in front of him during a Copa del Rey match. Zubikarai thought he'd be able to clear it with ease, and Castro says, "Not today, my friend." I don't know what's more embarrassing--giving up that goal, or giving up five others en route to a 6-1 blowout loss. That's like a 114-39 basketball score or a 45-7 football score. Very impressive.
