In a rare moment that gives you hope that there is still honesty and integrity in professional athletics, Miroslav Klose admitted handling the ball on a goal that put his team up 1-0. Based on his admission the referee disallowed the goal and Klose’s Lazio side lost the match 3-0. I wonder how many of our youth players/trainers would do the same.
US Soccer video of Klinsmann’s post-match press conference following the USMNT’s shocking loss to Jamaica in WC 2014 qualifying. Considering how blunt Klinsmann usually is, these excerpts appear heavily edited to not upset or offend anyone!
