Live pig smuggled into crowd at Palmeiras match in Brazil

A Palmeiras supporter somehow snuck a pig inside the stadium for Palmeiras' match against Atletico GO.

Despite football stadium security being tighter than ever, one intrepid Palmeiras fan still managed to smuggle a live creature into Saturday's Brazilian top-tier clash with Atletico GO.

Indeed, the supporter somehow sneaked his pig through the turnstiles at the Estadio Olimpico Pedro Ludovico and was subsequently photographed proudly holding his porcine pal aloft in the terraces.

The little chap is a ball-hog, in a very literal sense.

It should perhaps be noted at this juncture that Palmeiras...

'There won't be another player like Pele' - Brazil legend retired in 1977

Pele is carried off the pitch in his final game.

When Edson Arantes do Nascimento (otherwise known as Pele) finally retired on Oct. 1, 1977, he stood in the centre of the pitch in New Jersey, held his right hand aloft in a victory salute at the end of a short speech and said simply: "Love, love, love."

Having scored and played for both sides in a friendly between the only two teams he ever represented, New York Cosmos and Santos, the man considered by many to be the greatest player of all-time would not be seen in competitive action again.


Vinicius Junior staying 'level-headed' ahead of Madrid move - Flamengo boss

The FC crew evaluate Real Madrid's win over Sociedad, including Gareth Bale's goal and the emergence of Borja Mayoral.

Flamengo coach Reinaldo Rueda says Vinicius Junior has reacted well to his status as a future Real Madrid player, remaining "humble" and eager to learn as he spends a final 12 months developing in Brazil.

Madrid announced in May that they had signed Vinicius, then just 16, from Flamengo, with the reported €45 million transfer effective in July 2018 when the Brazil youth international turns 18.

He has been eased into the senior setup at Flamengo during the current Brazilian season, netting...

Real Madrid equal Santos' world record for scoring in consecutive games

The FC crew evaluate Real Madrid's win over Sociedad, including Gareth Bale's goal and the emergence of Borja Mayoral.

Real Madrid equalled the world record of scoring in consecutive matches -- set at 73 by Brazilian club Santos in 1963 -- when Borja Mayoral hit the back of the net in Sunday's 3-1 triumph at Real Sociedad.

Real's run began at Real Sociedad's Anoeta stadium on April 30, 2016, with Gareth Bale providing the only goal of the game.

No defence has been able to shut out Real's attack in any competition since Manchester City did so in their 0-0 Champions League semifinal first leg at the Etihad Stadium...


Women's football legend Marta to lead Brazil in two-game series vs. Australia

Marta vs Sweden OLY
Marta is a legend of women's football.

A 17,000-strong crowd at Penrith's Pepper Stadium will be pulling for the Matildas but at least a few in the national team set-up believe a few cheers should be saved for a true superstar of the game.

In their two-game series on Australian soil, Brazil will be led by legendary forward Marta, a five-time World Player of the Year.

Such is her dominance of the women's game, she was voted in the top three for that award for 11 straight years -- a run not even Lionel Messi can match.

While there's debate...
