Welcome to Fail City, my friends.
I recently came across a viral soccer video courtesy of the ladies of Maidstone United. If you’ve never heard of that team, there’s a reason for it, and it’s probably because they’re hot garbage.
If you don’t believe me, get a load of this mind-bendingly incapable soccer sequence.
Don’t worry, ladies. You are far from the only ones to fall short of expectations. Check out some of the most head-scratching sports fails I’ve come across during my long tenure working on the interwebs.
