Aggressive head slapping.
Edit: thanks for the love
Welcome to sports, where everyone’s your buddy until something good or bad happens.
IM SORRY! I THOUGHT THIS WAS AMERICA!
No in america it is a heterosexual butt pat.
I'll suck yo dick if you let me slap ass
Leh mi ghet sum of that Garcia slapp assss
You ghet outta deh lockah roooom! You ghet outta deh lockah roooom ahoraaa!
All I know is to hit home runs and shout slap ass
Get over here Chandler Bing!
Touch-butt in the park.
Sometimes I walk up behind people and just press my butt into theirs, firmly.
It’s one of those things huh
As long as you don’t add an extra squeeze all is good.
How does one differentiate between a heterosexual butt-pat and homosexual butt-pat?
Or if your the Texas Rangers it’s a dick grab
God dammit randy
Is that a South Park reference?
Americans type in all caps. It’s part of their personality
NO WE DON'T...
OH MY GOD WE DO!
THIS IS AS CLOSE AS I GET TO LOWERCASE BUB.
I love when NFL/NCAA (American) football players smack each other on the helmet as a form of congratulations. I'm sure that really helps counter the threat of concussions haha.
We would headbutt as high fives...
It's even worse after a player makes a big hit that obviously made himself woozy and then like 5 different players give him a congratulatory smack on the helmet.
Head slapping in soccer is a expression of affection:
Mourinho was absolutely not showing affection to Puyol there
uhh yeah he was. Mourinho coached Carlos Puyol and knew him well....
Uh... What team?
He was an translator/coach for Bobby Robson in Sporting, and then Porto and when Robson moved to Barcelona he took Mourinho with him and then stayed there when Van Gaal came in, that's where he coached Puyol (and Guardiola when he was a player there too). I thought this was common knowledge.
I just got grounded for showing affection to my brother.
Wait, you did slap the correct head, right?
Unless you play for a rival team
Was expecting this.
I don’t even like sports but that’s one of my favorite clips of ever.
That and all its derivatives.
I'll always remember that final for two reasons.
Holy shit! I'd never seen that before. That guy in the stands must have hit a very sensitive nerve with whatever he said to that player. This rivals the brawl between the Detroit Pistons and the fans during an NBA game a while ago. Crazy stuff
For anyone who doesn't know, Malice at the Palace
Tbh I'd put the Malice a much bigger deal than that
Lmao, that was great. You shouldn't kung fu kick giantdad tho.
The headbutt heard round the world.
Poked in the ear! And you're to blame! You give soccer, a bad name! bad name!
I saw your flair and didn’t know what else to expect. Lol
Ow! That hurts!
The speed and ferocity of the slap was executed to perfection. Not quite hard enough to be a clear cut aggressive gesture but too hard to be a completely friendly slap. He just wanted to confuse and piss off Puyol to get in his head a bit. Mission Accomplished
Do they fall down in agony when their own team does it?
Zlatan is probably my favorite for this.
That editing just screams 13 year old boy who live, shit, eats football.
THAT IS GAY!!!!!!
Shocked he didnt edit in his best friend from 9th grade's face on the butt slapper
"LOL CHRIS U R GAYYYYY!!!!!!"
Sorry I didn’t have the patience to find a better one.
It honestly wasnt a bad pick despite the cheesey editing. It gets straight to the point and replays that beautiful head slap three times
That’s some 2009 Football video editing right there.
Lmao he could have knocked him out with that haymaker
oof back when we had Ibra :(
still better than slap ass
all i do is play ball and slap asssss
Jason Garrett disagrees.
I come from the Dominican Republic...
This is Major League Baseball, we're all from the Dominican Rebublic.
And much better than chap ass
Says you. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
oh come on mannnnn....just give me one slappppp
Right on the top of the button of the baseball hat...that hurts!
We called that the headache button
Only concussion that game was the ball boy and the brutal attack was caught on tape
Those little nipples at the top of the hat hurt when they are slammed into your head lol.
Affectionate head pats
For who is a good boy
"Jumped in". If dude's gonna include you in the celebration while you didn't do anything...be prepared to earn it.
That's nothing. Check the FC Porto celebrations. The scorer is getting punched in the neck most times.
But when someone flicks your ear you suddenly go down and start rolling around in pain.
"It's not gay if it hurts."
Yeah, that thing at the top of the hat does not feel good being hammered into your head. Probably why he covered his head and removed his cap shortly after the head slapping started.
Damn. Scoring a goal in front of a crowd like that.
He was slapping the bass
Is no one else bothered by how the guy with the mic keeps poking him to get a comment?
Yeah, he really seemed to be trying to stab him in the head with the mic. Personal space, bro
I care about my personal space. WHOA WHOA..who’s around me right now..?
I don’t even want this Skin up in MY personal space!
Personal space doesn’t exist in most countries
Lol I’m Irish and if I said that to anyone in my family I’d be know that the “personal space kid” for generations to come.
It’s entirely possible he just wanted to get the Audio
Still. Dick move.
It was a microphone, not his dick.
Its a bold strategy cotton
I thought it was foam
With a microphone? I dunno.
It's entirely possible that he's a dickhead
Getting the audio
"I got the best head slapping audio this side of the field!"
I don't think I'd be able to handle this kind of stuff if I was a pro athlete or famous. I'd be getting fined every day for throwing microphones 20 yards away.
I'm not a pro but high enough that had to give post race interviews. They're under pressure to get audio but when you're lucky to get an ex athlete conducting it they will talk to you for a while to let you get your breath back. The ones that don't really know will ask you something straight up and those are the ones that you want to spew on the mic of
out of curiosity, what do you do?
He races guinea pigs.
While really stoned.
you're right.. but I'm female...
Male, female, who cares, we're all humans aren't we? Except for the guinea pigs.
But aren't they really just tiny people? I like to pretend they are
That's what they want you to think, but in actuality, they are evil little beings that are plotting our demise. They have already infiltrated many homes, and now their sleeper agents are just waiting for their signal to commence the destruction of humanity.
I think you’d remember that your livelihood and career in the modern day is predicated in these kinds of things. People want audio of the celebration. The same people that lead to huge TV contracts and advertisement that support athletic contracts.
Good think we don’t leave our basements then, eh?
Throw it in a lake
every pro player gets media training and you'll find out quick enough the more mics you throw the more paparazzi will follow you.
Yeah I definitely get the PR side. I'd probably take the Marshawn Lynch strategy saying "I'm just here so I don't get fined." over and over again.
It was most likely just to get audio of the celebration
I mean still tho these dude were really intrusive... you don't see reporters crowding NFL players like that after a TD. Or in the NBA after a game winner they still give them space until they've settled down.
These were just intrusive reporters, if you really just wanted audio, your crew would have a boom mic to pic it up. So you're not jabbing multi millionaires athletes in the head and ruining the moment
I get that it's their job and I bet they don't like doing it either, but like come on bruh
"Fuck your personal, meaningful moment with someone you love. I need a quote, godammit."
While it is weird, I think they're trying to get the sound of the celebration. No one gives interview/ask for comments like that during a game of football. Weird they don't use a pole though
It’s Herb Welch
It wasnt to get a comment.
Just trying to pick up any audio between the pair
“Wait a minute that’s not a hot tub”
Hey I see you're having a nice heartwarming moment with your brother, mind if we stick these giant red microphones inside your faces?
More bothered that, for all that, we still don't get to hear how they articulated their love and happiness and pride and support that they exchanged in that special moment. (Yes, yes, it was private, but so were many of the letters we like to read between people describing important moments/events.)
I don’t think he wanted a comment, they were just trying to record any audio, despite the aggression
I think they were just trying to record anything they could. Im not sure they were ever asked for a comment.
I think it was more to capture what they were saying to each other. Still a dick move.
Is it important to you that other people are bothered by the same things you're bothered by?
It was all staged and planed... this is just a publicity strategy from a team that owns exclusive rights from home matches.
So probably the young brother was always behind the opposite team goal. Also the reporter was ready in case the goal happen.
Besides that, Felix is a great player with a great future. Probably will be one of the best in a few years.
It's very wholesome, but also hilarious when you watch the ever living shit get slapped out of the kid, I mean seriously, the kids gonna have a concussion by the end of the game!
Best concussion ever!
Best what now?
Evr koncusion, best!
Every Nutella fusion fest!
Sorry I fell asleep
Best memory that he won't remember.
He needs to wear some serious headgear in case of hattricks
Life as a younger sibling
Do you not watch Football?
No, only soccer. I'm not a big fan of the NFL. /s
Almost never, I watched the World Cup last year, that's about it.
These head slaps are very common among team mates in Football - I dunno why, it’s a European thing - the kid is probably used to it!
that is about as good as it gets! well done
Why am I crying at a sports highlight?
Lol, you aren't. Just like I didn't actually laugh out loud.
Lmao. Holy shit, call an ambulance.
Smh, You didn't laugh your ass off, just like I didn't actually shake my head.
Are you on your period?
It can get gooder.
I love the way his teammates included his brother in the celebration. It was a classy thing for them to do.
His little brother is a fucking savage on the youth team and he probably gets to hang with the 1st team all the time considering his brothers a star for them
They probably all expect him to make the step up to first team in a few years and are hyped to see the little man
That is quite possible
As an American sports fan I find this fascinating. Are they really out there signing high schoolers to put into their farm teams? Is there a draft like baseball has here?
These big soccer clubs have academies dedicated to kids of all ages. I believe Messi was around 13 in Argentina when he was recruited by Barcelona in Spain.
No draft! European soccer runs on a free market model of transfers where the highest bidders get whatever they want. Kids as young as 6-7 can join academies for clubs in their country, while you have to wait until 15 or 16 to move to another country to join a foreign academy I believe, for example there is a young Swedish super talent aged 14 who announced he wants to join the academy at Chelsea FC, one of the top youth academies in the world, but has to wait until next year to do so. Every pro team has a youth academy accommodating teams from ages 6 to 23. They actually had a international final for u8 teams (8 and under) that was won by Luton Town, who are a very low profile and small team in England
My team (Borussia Dortmund) gave Christian Pulisic his senior team debut at 16. Our current youth star Jadon Sancho just turned 19 a few months back and he has the most assists in Europe, on top of Messi, Erickson or Hazard. Has 10 goals too to boot.
My local team (Cherno more Varna) is giving chances to the younger players all the time. One of them at the age of 17 was called to play for the main Bulgarian team.
Yeah I live in the states now and I can’t wrap my head around how draft picks and trading players work at all.
We also have Moukoko who is tearing up the u-17s as a 14 year old. 21 games and he has 36 goals and 7 assists. Players are identified and trained from a very young age.
But then you have players like Carlos Bacca or Jamie Vardy who are identified in their 20s and go on to start for big teams. At 20, an age most players are starting to break into the first team, Bacca was working several part time jobs including driving a bus and selling fish in Colombia in order to support his family.
For a moment I thought “Vardy sold fish in Colombia!?”. I’m not a smart person.
Now I am trying to imagine Jamie Vardy trying to speak Spanish and drunkinly selling fish on the street.
As a Dortmund fan,I’m refusing to use their name due to that loss to Bayern. >:( 0-5 ? Fr?
Huh? I think we’re being too negative, Sancho is having his first full season as a starter in one of Europe’s top leagues and he’s notched more assists then anyone else at 19 and has 10 goals to boot. The whole teams form has dipped since winter break. So long as we don’t slip up we still have a good shot at the title.
That game specifically tilted me. We can’t rely on Paco for everything like we have been recently,our gks positioning was questionable during that game too
Pizzi has 15 assists so far (only at League games), Sancho has 13.
Idk whoscored put Sancho as the top assister on their list so maybe it’s only counting the top 5 leagues which is maybe why the Premiera Liga isn’t counted?
Yes, I guess that's the reason. I saw the stats on Sofascore.
and he will be sold for 100 million this summer cause thats what BVB do... find great young talent, give them a chance, then sell them ASAP.
I hate Bayern. I really like Dortmund... but I can't ever see them competing for anything the way they sell players immediately. I think Leipzig will challenge Bayern more than BVB in the coming years.
European sports operate on capitalist mind set of free market. Not some commie draft and salary cap unpatriotic bull.
That always makes me laugh. European football is a good example of a most capitalistic system, whereas the NFL, in what is supposed to be the most capitalist country, runs it league like the communists would. Baseball is much more free market.
Probably closer to the other way around - if you aren’t involved in a “real” club’s youth setup by the time you start highschool, your chances of making it are already getting slim.
FIFA doesn’t allow anyone under the age of 19(?) to sign professional contracts, but clubs can recruit players to youth academies. There aren’t any drafts, (except in the MLS) but pro clubs have scouts who look at well known youth teams around the world for prospects
That can’t be true, Rooney was signed at 16.
Rooney was an academy product that was promoted to the first team
Rooney joined the Everton youth team at the age of 9, and made his professional debut for the club in 2002 at the age of 16. He spent two seasons at the Merseyside club, before moving to Manchester United for £25.6 million in the 2004 summer transfer window.
That’s from Wikipedia
Hence the question mark. I knew they weren’t allowed to until a certain age, but wasn’t so sure about the age I thought it was. Someone else pointed out that it’s 15
Players can sign a pro contract at 15, they generally don’t sign on until around age 17 because so much can change in those two years
This isn't true. The age requirement to sign a pro conntract depends on the labor laws of each country.
I thought Rooney had an Everton contract at 16
Wait what? Mbappé was World Champion at 19
American soccer teams are doing the same thing
As someone who knows both realities too well, I prefer the American system. It's far more interesting if you don't have the top two teams winning every year. I am a Benfica fan but, I hate the fact that smaller teams virtually have no chance in winning the league because Benfica and Porto have the most money to get the best players.
The same happens on a larger scale, Real Madrid has far more money than Benfica. So, they and other clubs in the top 10 buyout Benfica stars every year. Joao Felix, the kid in this video, is rumored to leave for an astronomical amount.
A star? The kids 19!
Little brother, called Hugo, plays for one of Benfica's youth teams, and they all practice/hang out in the same sports complex just outside of Lisbon. It's likely they've seen him around and know he's also a fan of the club.
Let me just shove this microphone against the side of his head..
They wanted to hear his thoughts
It was 47 minutes old when you made the comment.
I've never see a comment I wanted to give gold to but this would be the first if I had some. It's the thought that counts right?
What was he thinking?
This has to get gilded surely
Do they have random reporters scattered about the field everywhere just in case?
They’re getting audio, not asking questions
Pretty much around the field
Sounds like a job for Herb Welch
...is....is chanting seven nation army in portugal a thing...?
the tune is very popular all over Europe when a team scores or wins a game.
It became popular back in Belgium when Club Brugge played AC Milan in 2004, Brugge fans were drinking before the game and heard the song on the radio, they started singing it in the streets before the game and when they scored the winner, it became a popular tune in Belgium for football clubs. fast forward to 2006 when Roma played against Brugge and won, the Roma fans started chanting the song and it became known as the “Po Po Po” song in Italy, later on in summer 2006 Italy won the world cup and the song was sang all over Rome, ever since that day the song is played in stadiums before games and when a team scores.
the WE WILL ROCK YOU of the 21st century.
I know we don't matter too much in the world of football but we use it here in the MLS (USA) as well.
It’s a staple of college football as well.
Of all college sports really
Pro too. I think the Ravens were some of the first people to play it.
Aww, you matter!
Something about the user name checking out
Even the Central American teams used it during CONCACAF Champions League.
Dutch fans take it a step further against Italy in 2008
Usually sang about Germans afaik. Not PC
All over the world. In Brazil it is as well.
It was initially written as a Bond theme tune.
But the dude realized that he'll never actually get the chance to have his song be a Bond theme... Then after the popularity of this song he did get one lol
Never really got the Bond theme vibe from Seven Nation Army or Another Way to Die to be fair.
It's become so associated with the sport that it was played before every match of the World Cup last summer: https://www.npr.org/2018/07/11/626288758/american-anthem-world-cup-white-stripes-seven-nation-army
Its not just soccer, that song has become ubiquitous in pretty much every sport
We do it too (dutch) although we changed the lines a bit to sing about our men loving neighbouring country.......sorry Germany we don't think you're all gay and for that matter nothing's wrong even if that would be the case.
haha, we love that track at games in the UK too.
It's also been adopted by all 15 teams in the Big Ten.
Why does a group called The Big Ten have 15 members?
Well the Big 12 has 10 members.
"is call Big Ten but has contain fifeteen, please no ask, is good deal buddy, please buy from vlad, u can trust"

Teams join and leave all the time. According to Wikipedia it was originally named the Intercollegiate Conference of Faculty Representatives in 1896, renamed the Big 9 conference in 1899 because 9 teams were in it, and then the Big 10 and that stuck since 1916.
this happens at baseball games in the US too (maybe other sports but i only watch baseball)
NFL too, at least at the Ravens home games. Haven’t heard it in any other NFL stadium
Having only been to Ravens games, I always assumed they did it everywhere haha. That and the "OOOO" in the anthem
The O in the anthem is 100% Orioles original.
If you have a massive crowd gathered anywhere in the world for whatever reason it really isn't uncommon for Seven Nation Army to great out. It's truly one of the most popular rock songs of all time.
See this. Yeah, it is super common, not just in a Portugal tho.
The Miami Heat fan's used to chant it at games. I grew to really hate that song.
Dunno about all england but Man City does it with "Ohh Kevin DeBruyne"
Ever since the last general election in the UK all i can hear the crowd singing is "ohh jeremy corbyn, ohhh jeremy corbyn" :D
Ohhhh Robin Van Persie! Ohhhh Robin Van Persie!
We chant anything for Benfica baby
It's now an anthem all around Europe during soccer/football games. Very popular in Germany
This is dope, but jeez the kid prolly has a migraine with all those head slaps
He's a teenager with an older brother, he's definitely endured worse than that.
That's lighter than I get just walking down the hall.
He’s a younger brother.... he’s endured far more then a few slaps.
You should see what happens when it's your birthday or cut your hair as a kid. It's not even slaps, it's with the knuckles, if it's your birthday, you get hit the same number as how old you are
The amount of love there makes me happy. Big Brother to Little Brother. Team's love for their player and staff wholeheartedly embracing both. Just awesome.
That quick kiss at the end said it all. So great
It started with sincerity then turned into a bit of rough housing, then his brother wanted to make sure it ended with love. Beautiful!
I grew up with a bully as a brother :(
This is beside the point of the whole video, but I've always loved the sound of a huge crowd at field level. I've never been part of something that big or even bought front row tickets to any event, but that huge roar is satisfying.
If you get a chance, do it. Doesnt even have to be sports, your favourite bands next gig will do. Being part of a huge happy crowd is a very special experience.
I've always wondered what the crowd sounded like to the athlete, performer, band, etc. I guess thats it!
agreed, the way the flags rise up and everyone jumping on their feet gives me goosebumps
This is actually what i thought of when i saw this post. Another example of what i was talking about.
Riquelme vs River 2015
Argetina's 3rd division absolute screamer
People going mad by rabona goal
Wow, that 3rd division free kick is amazing!
I wonder what it's like to hear a crowd chant your bands music
I'll tell you I've never played infront of a crowd that big, but I did play infront of a crowd of around 5k people, and it was an amazing feeling. Whenever you did something great/good/spectacular/kind the crowd would roar and it would fill you up with this energy. Probably adrenaline, but yeah.. amazing feeling..
Oh my god, I love getting seats in the Nordecke at Crew Stadium, it's always fucking wild.
Can you possibly imagine being either of those kids in this scenario? Being just 19 years old, one of the hottest talents in Europe and having THOUSANDS of people cheer your goal, or being right there to experience it with your brother while he’s being celebrated? Surreal.
I really don’t know how these kids even perform so well on this kind of stage. Brilliant stuff.
It's down to personality, some are born with insecurity and some just don't give a fuck. Zlatan for example, he didn't get like this, he was always a bit of a psycho but that helps with not feeling the pressure. Every truly great player is the same.
Nah it’s totally normal. Means you have empathy. Or sympathy? Can’t remember which. I got goosebumps here too, can’t even imagine sharing that moment with my brother, that would be so unreal
Being a profesional player of ANY sport must be amazing. But the feeling of soccer has to be at another level. All the synchronized chanting and thousands of people going crazy when u score. Seeing people on the street with your last name on the shirts. And to top it off become a millionaire from playing the sport you love. I dont think there could be anything better.
I love soccer but everything you just mentioned is not exclusive to soccer lol
That why i said any sport. But that level of chanting i saw in Europe once where they all sing the same thing pretty much the entire game even before the game begins. I personally haven't seen in any other sport and only personally seen it in Europe. Again. Im speaking for myself. If it does happen at other sport. I havent seen it or experienced it.
Oh okay yeah the zealotry is definitely unparalleled. People dont really treat basketball or baseball like it's a religion lol. Shit gives me goosebumps sometimes.
Its fucking insane. I can only imagine what it would feel like to go out into the field to all those screaming fans
Watch Liverpool fans sing “you’ll never walk alone” on YouTube. We sing it before every home match and around the stadium during games. It’s mesmerizing watching 50,000 people sing it!
Too bad it was at our expense </3
his future is bright
edit: dont look at me
This was actually yesterday,against Vitoria de Setúbal
Oh shit youre right i didnt even pay attention to the beginning of the video just saw the celebration with his team mates
Considering the performance he put in vs your guys last week, it’s a simple mistake anyone could have made
Yes, he crushed us so I just figured thats where it had to be from
Yeah it didn't look like Frankfurts jerseys, had to scroll all the way down here to see what game it was. Almost looked like Sportings kits. This kid just cant stop scoring, what a week hes had.
Like /u/mjedwin13 mentioned, he brutalized us so i just figured it was when he scored one of his 3 goals there.
Hes absolutely insane, a joy to watch; preferably not against your team though
The view of the thousands of fans sitting in the stadium juxtaposed with the player running straight to his brother is beautiful
Poor kid’s probably got a concussion now
This guy is dynamite on FM19 (Joao Felix, not his little bro)
not his little bro
YET! he's destroying in the Benfica U-15 team
some people in Benfica's academy say that his brother is even better than Joao in his age...
Was this a regular goal, his first, or the one that tied the match? They seem to be celebrating pretty hard but soccer does that so idk
It was -1 with this goal, his 1st of the night after 2 assists. 4 days ago he scored an hatrick in the Europa League (youngest player ever). Result wise not very important (even though it gave them breathing room for an eventual tie) but for a 19 year old kid every goal he gets to score in front of 55000 home fans is a pretty big deal.
I have a sneaky feeling a big club is going to try to spend over £100m for him this summer.
His clause is 130 mil and benfica aren't willing to lower that down on top of that his agent is mendes who also happens to be Ronaldo's agent.
Mendes ey? Looks like Wolves will be breaking their transfer record again.
Laughs in Vieira
They might as Portuguese journals are doing their best PR-wise to make him look like the next messiah.
Sporting Lisbon fans:
* cry *
there are 55,000 people in that video? Something about the way soccer stadiums are built makes it seem like there are a hundred thousand plus at every game
56.463 according to official numbers. The stadium was sold out that day, since Benfica are in the final 6 games of a very very close championship (Benfica and Porto share the same points with just 5 games remaining, Benfica having the lead since they beat Porto twice on the league. Both teams are still in the European competitions, Champions League for Porto and Europa League for Benfica, and Porto is on the Cup final).
Benfica's old stadium actually did fit 135.000 people, but that was before safety regulations were a serious thing.
I've been on that stadium many times. People aren't bunched up together against each other, people are spaced out enough. I have good memories in that thing, I saw Ronaldo and Kaka play there and witness Benfica win a championship there. Really awesome if you're a football fan.
There are couple rows of VIP boxes and it's relatively modern stadium so there's much more space.
Barcelona's home, Camp Nou houses 100 000 but certainly doesn't look like 2x the size of this. That's because it was revamped almost 40 years ago and It's cramped, very little VIP boxes and VIP seating. They are pretty much rebuilding Camp Nou in the next 3 years.
I don’t watch Benfica too often but it seemed like a regular goal. Football/soccer fans are just really passionate.
Well goals are more rare
It was a pretty normal celebration.
The last few seconds when the players walk back onto the pitch and you can see all those fans in the stands... shivers.
I was one of those persons :p
Ah yes, please ruin this moment for him by shoving a microphone into his mouth. That seems appropriate.
This is so wholesome
Great moment! Nice camerawork too.
dagum i'm about to cry
Can the bro ply too
Plays for the U15s in the same club, 11 goals in 17 games
How can he be playing in U15s squad if he's 16?
title is wrong, he's 15, made last month
gave me the chills when the crowd roared
This warms my soul.
This may be the most wholesome violence I've ever seen.
Wow, fuck off with the microphones
The affection displayed amongst international men (I’m from the U.S.) is fucking beautiful and so pure. At least from what I’ve seen of international athletes.
So wholesome, i cant even
Looks like a movie scene.
That field of view is intense
Football atmospheres are amazing.
"and then all his team mates ran over and they all just started hitting me"
I love it!
Yup, those slaps definitely hurts.
Kid most likely has a concussion after that lol
High as fuck on mushrooms this looks surreal to me right now.
They are children haha. No but in all seriousness I love this. So young and talented, world is the limit
My older brother would have probably just come over and pulled my pants down
That kid got slapped so hard on the head
That kid got a lot of head slaps
Love to see it
Edwards, do your thing
There’s some good parenting involved here.
The mics in their faces was very unnecessary
Dude got semi beat up xD
This looked like a video game at first. I think I need new eyes
Such a happy celebration
Moments you will always cherish!
makes it look soooooooo ez
Get the freakin mic out of his face. Geez.
I don’t have a team, is Benedict’s now my team?
Hey congrats on the goal here is some CTE to go along with your goal lol
They beat the shit out of him xD
Anyone got other angles?
“Let me show no respect for this amazing family moment by shoving a mic right in your faces”
On the Jumbotron at the end, with a 5 second delay for some reason.
most ballboy is academy player right?
Right. The younger brother plays for Benfica's Under-15 team (and he's a pretty lethal striker).
he's a pretty lethal striker
he's a pretty lethal striker
he's a CAM like João
Will be. As of now he’s a 9 in the youth squad often playing as a lone striker. Not uncommon for that age group.
I like how they’re so affectionate towards each other
Lotta kissin going on
I would of had a problem with that aggressive ass head slapping.
Number 21 smacking the fuck outta him.
Family and football ⚽🤙
Ok that’s cool!
Camera work was cinematic.
Anyone else find the people sticking the microphones out low key annoying😂
This made me smile!
Dude definitely went home with a subdural hematoma after all them soccer slaps.
Wondering who's the favorite child.
Fuck this is heartwarming
Never did getting your ass beat feel so good.
That was a banger of a goal as well.
They beating the shit out of him
this is adorable
I was watching this game and wondered who that was. They kinda looked alike.
The kid is amazing and plays with confidence and joy. Hope we can keep him more years with us
Ok, got my vote for coolest big bro of the year award
Fuck those reporters are a plague. Leave the guy alone to celebrate his goal.
That makes parents so proud
I going to Wichita...
I love the little inside joke they share before hugging, with their arms crossed almost standoffish. You can tell these kids are close.
Fuck off mic guy! Jesus let them hug for a moment and don’t fucking boo them with the mic like a douche
How do you pronounce João in English? I feel like it would be Joe-anne-oh but I have no clue.
English version of João is John.
No shit, but I wonder how you pronounce the Portuguese version.
Jo = joo (without the initial d sound in the English pronunciation of J, see: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Voiced_postalveolar_fricative )
Ão = similar to 'oun' in sOUNd
Voiced postalveolar fricative
Voiced fricatives produced in the postalveolar region include the voiced palato-alveolar fricative [ʒ], the voiced postalveolar non-sibilant fricative [ɹ̠˔], the voiced retroflex fricative [ʐ], and the voiced alveolo-palatal fricative [ʑ]. This article discusses the first two.

jo = ju
ão = https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=niW9BVUcMfY
ão is a nasal sound, it's hard to explain, when I'm watching English commentary on games and they try to say it's usually "Jao" (Jau) or "Jo-a-o" (they open the vowels).
Damn this is heartwarming. Joao is turning into a legitimate superstar! First the threesome and now this, class act by the young lad!
Young lad gets attacked by savage rogue athletes
I feel bad for whoever bought tickets for the seats behind that flag at 0:07
Someone needs to remove that tan man's arm.
I’m a Futbol Clube do Porto fan, but this hit me in the feels.
This looks so much like a video game!
And then beat the shit out of him
This video really hit me in the feels n IDK why. Shut up I'm not crying, you're crying 😢 😭
Those reporters are so annoying sticking that microphone so close to them. Let them celebrate
They're expected to play in Gillette stadium, US in July against AC Milan.
their dad couldn't be more proud.
He’s a U-15 for the club but I guess ballboy is the title to go with lol
His brothers name is also joão and same with all the defensemen
god I love football
this is the best
So very wholesome.
That kid is waking up with some bruises
Could be the Messi! Symphatic AF
I love how the rest of the team include him in their celebration, except Pizzi, he looks like he gave him a concussion
You see that? He struck a child.
Great camera angle - really brings you in
Fuck that reporter
Apparently the kid is worth 100m now. At just 19 years old.
This is beautiful stuff. Hope Felix can stay for a while. Kid is a star.
Dude with microphone on right needs to chill.
What a nice guy !
Looks like soccer needs to invest in the microphone dishes the nfl uses, otherwise you get piece of shits shoving mics in their face
Man he made that look easy. That ball was about six inches off the ground and he put it perfectly into the top corner.
Brotherhood so strong he got his own teammates to slap his brother's head.
Get those mic’s outta there
"Gang assaults balboy"
Man.. sports are awesome. Wholesome moment.
I thought it was PES 2019 at first.
How fucking badass is this
My brother tells me to shut up when I don’t say anything
How do you pronounce his first name?
He’s a stud. He’s gonna be amazing isn’t he?
Imagine the love that little brother feels for his older brother.
That seven nation army chant tho.
MWAH! That kiss at the end. <3
Such a precious moment...... Now hurry and shove those recording mics right in their faces and don't stop!!!!!
Those were some hard smacks to the back of the head!
19 year old playing for a major soccer team and here I am in my phone looking at him be great. This was awesome though
Dear microphone dudes ... back the fuck up.
Yeah, I was there! It was really cool
Reporters ruining the moment by shoving a mic at them lol
All those hugs must feel absolutely amazing after doing something that you feel super proud to have done in the first place.
I'm 19 and my brother is 17 and we argue about whose turn it is to use computer 👌😂
Fucking scumbag reporter just HAD to get the microphone in there.
I like reporters just shover those mics in his face
I mean like do you expect him to give you a 90mins exclusive interview after scoring the goal
Let's Go Blues
Beautiful moment and a perfect example of why I have problems with the sports media. It's so cutthroat that these brothers can't have a nice moment with out some asshole shoving a Mic and camera in their faces.
“Why isn’t the US producing soccer players???”
Because if this kid was American, he’d be redshirting at Creighton right now.
