Joel Embiid thought he would fall to second round

Joel Embiid’s offseason foot injury likely cost him the No. 1 overall selection in Thursday’s NBA draft and he ultimately only fell two spots to Philadelphia at No. 3.

Brazil Knocks Off Chile In A Thrilling Shootout

Brazil has done it — it is through to the next round of the World Cup after edging Chile in a shootout. The game would come down to the fifth shooters. While Neymar calmly and cooly nailed his penalty kick, Chile’s final shooter didn’t fare as well. This is how close Chile was to forcing more penalty kicks. Shootouts are awesome.

  This World Cup superfan had Tim Howard’s mug shaved into his hair after the Americans advanced to the Round of 16. While the support and patriotism is commendable, the shaved face looks more like a Greek mythological hero or a Biblical figure than the bearded bald Everton goaltender.       [Sports Pickle] Article found on: Next Impulse Sports

Brazil’s Goal Called Back Due To This Handball

Brazil thought it had its second goal of the game, but the referee negated the goal because of a handball. It’s a tough call to make — especially considering the game is being played in Brazil — but I think the ref got this one right.

Luis Suarez has unbelievable explanation for bite

Well, this is amusing. The images below clearly show Luis Suarez biting Italian player Giorgio Chiellini. Luis Suarez doesn’t see it that way.

Was Russia’s Goalkeeper Blinded By A Laser Prior To Algeria’s Goal? Maybe

It’s a pretty cool feat: for the first time in World Cup history, Algeria is moving on to the Round of 16. It did so by drawing with Russia, 1-1, in its final group stage game. But Russia is having none of it. Mainly because it appears that on Algeria’s goal, Russian goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev was blinded or distracted by a green laser of some sort. After the game, Russia coach Fabio...
