Germany Coach Joachim Loew Consoles Portugal’s Cristiano Ronaldo By Passing Him a Booger


Germany coach Joachim Loew’s squad wiped the floor with Portugal this afternoon in the form of a 4-0 thrashing. To say Cristiano Ronaldo had a tough day would be an understatement. After 90 minutes of frustration, though, he was able to do the honorable thing and congratulate the winning side.

But Loew (inadvertently) added insult to injury by giving one of the greatest players in the world the Ol’ Snot Handshake.


This has international incident written all over it. Unless, of course, the viscous material provides the styling hold Ronaldo requires in such humid conditions. Then this seemingly unfortunate exchange would turn serendipitous.
