Despite playing for the French national team, Lille Midfielder Rio Antonio Mavuba has no true nationality. Reason being, he was born at sea

A 2nd Division Romanian club sold midfielder Ion Radu to another Romanian 2nd Division club for 500kg of pork.

There are only two football teams in the Isles of Scilly – The Gunners and the Wanderers. They play each other every week in the league, the only break being when they meet in the Cup.

A Tanzanian soccer match was postponed in 1978 after the referee was arrested on the pitch and accused of smoking marijuana just before the kick-off.

In 1987, a Peruvian 1st division side was thrown out of the national cup competition at the semi-final stage when it was discovered that their first choice eleven was made up entirely of eels and sting-rays.

In 1975 an international match between Chile & Uruguay was abandoned after 19 players were sent off.

Ryan Giggs's real surname is Wilson and he's part African. His dad, Danny Wilson, is a half-Welsh, half-Sierra Leonean rugby professional who used to play for Wales. Giggs took his mother's maiden name when his parents split up.

Tottenham’s Allan Nielsen was the proudest man alive after the birth of his daughter. Then the baby poked him in the eye, forcing him to sit out the club’s next match on the sidelines!

The ironing board falls over. The Liverpool goalie dashes over to catch it. Michael Stensgaard was forced into temporary retirement with the resultant shoulder injury

In 17 years of pro football, Raul has never been sent off.

Ronaldinho at 13 years of age, once scored all the goals in a 23 - 0 thrashing of another team.

A nike ad of Ronaldinho dribbling the ball in 2005 was the first youtube video to reach the 1,000,000 view mark.
