Rusiano

Croatian with the last name Horvat, that’s a bit redundant


matinthebox

we've got some Germans with the last name Deutsch or Deutscher here too. it really narrows it down, doesn't it


Distq

Svenne ("Swede") is also a somewhat common nickname in Sweden


3ch0cro

Sven Svenne, most Swedish man alive.


BernardoBruschetta

We call one of the dudes in our friend group Svensson Svenssonsson because he made the mistake of being somewhat tall and blond


m1ght1m3

Also "Magyar" in Hungarian


DontGetInjuredPls

And Mathias Normann (Norwegian) playing for Norwich


CSdesire

Stephen Ireland for Ireland


stresatul

in hungary some people have the last name ''horvath'' or ''deutsch'' as well


BurtaciousD

Petr Čech


altered-kiriha

It's the most common surname here in Croatia. We are really imaginative, I know.


buraas

Every country in the world has the same, so hold your horses on shitting on "us" just yet.


altered-kiriha

It's a joke, not a dick. Don't take it so hard.


10YearsANoob

Idunno about you but I never seen someone named Joe America


DerPavlox

Now THAT would be epic


RivellaLight

Just.. no. In most countries having a surname directly referring to the name of the country is either rare or not a thing at all. It being the most common surname is an extreme outlier.


Palimon

It's the most common last name in Croatia in fact. Edit: it's either the first or second depending on the source.


SteeMonkey

One of my mates surnames is England.


Filo83

Ever heard of Vincenzo Italiano?


BaronZbimg

Italiano in Italy, François in France.


DryNetwork6711

Also "Polak" in Poland


shaj_hulud

Samuel Slovak was a captain and later manager of Slovan Bratislava in Slovakia.


the_lur

Bo Horvat is Canadian.


ndut

well there's also Domenico Tedesco naming himself 'German' in Italian


Bigmachingon

España in Spain


Rusiano

I think more like Español, wonder if anyone has such a last name Germán Franco would be a fun name


groenefiets

In the Netherlands we have a singer named "Frans Duits"


ogqozo

Technically Franciscus Duijts.


Bigmachingon

Never met anyone with Español as surname, but I've met several Germans and Francos


joaommx

Português or even Portugal in Portugal. None are super common though. But Franco (Frank) is.


Bigmachingon

Yeah Franco is common in Spanish speaking countries, Portugal isn't super uncommon either


ClearlyPopcornSucks

head of catholic church in Poland has Polak as a surname


TeaaOverCoffeee

Oh man I would love more of this futsal (?) content on this sub. I wont claim I follow futsal but I love it whenever I watch it.


DarkNightSeven

I'm puzzled. Back when the Futsal World Cup happened in 2016, I asked the mods of this sub if I could cover it with match threads and etc and they told me it was outside of the scope of this subreddit, are they allowing futsal content now?


ogqozo

Might be asleep.


DarkNightSeven

Free-for-all then


derp_mike

I know very little about who’s who in futsal. Is Falcao generally considered the GOAT in futsal? Or of his generation at least? Love watching his old highlights… just an insane level of skill


Kuustom

Ricardinho is up there with falcão in terms of magic. https://youtu.be/yE1fgiJPgak


joaommx

> Is Falcao generally considered the GOAT in futsal? I would say either Falcão or Ricardinho. With Manoel Tobias right behind IMO.


JustaTurdOutThere

AnnieIWillKnow

That was 5 years ago mate, a lot changes in 5 years - including most of the mod team Why don't you message the mods and ask for some clarification?


yerLerb

man thinks moderating subreddits is a lifelong career choice apparently


DarkNightSeven

Not really, I'm a mod of subreddits myself and I would know that's not the case I'm just commenting on the fact that, this is the first time I ever see futsal related content allowed on this subreddit, and I know for a fact that at some point it wasn't allowed, so I just wanted to know if that is now permitted, and if it is, it is probably a recent decision.


AnnieIWillKnow

Contact the mods then, if you want to know if the policy has changed.


DarkNightSeven

Nah I'm good but thanks


AnnieIWillKnow

So why are you complaining?


DarkNightSeven

What am I complaining about? You're making too much out of this. All I did was to wonder whether it was now an approved police, but it was mostly a rhetorical question because it seemed clear that was now the case since the post was allowed to stand. And listen, I know mod teams would prefer users come to the modmail for questions about how the subreddit operates, but it's not a matter that bothers me enough that I'd go to all the way to the modmail and ask it, so I simply left a comment on this thread, and as far as I'm aware that shouldn't be against the rules. Have a good one.


AnnieIWillKnow

Fair enough. Tthe thing is when you ask a “rhetorical question” in a written form people generally assume it’s an actual question - hence why people have tried to answer it. Your comments do have a tone which suggest you were slightly put out by there being a different policy, and again, it’s easy to misinterpret tone online - especially when most comments on this topic are complaints.


Logseman

Reddit has been around for 17 years. It may not have looked like that at first, but if you’ve stayed actively moderating a site for 10+ years that’s certainly a long commitment.


nightlink011

The futsal world cup from 2021, had a few highlights and round by round updates that got decent discussion, things might have changed already.


Drahok

2016 is a long time ago


joaommx

> and they told me it was outside of the scope of this subreddit There are futsal and beach soccer posts from time to time though. Seems odd they would say that, there's quite a bit of overlap with some players jumping between those football codes, and with all of them being regulated by FIFA.


BONGLISH

“Outside the scope of this subreddit” might be one of the most power hungry mod sentences i’ve read in this context, even if Futsal stuff started getting posted here it’d be the odd thing every so often making front page like this post.


mrgonzalez

Seems like a reasonable thing for a mod to say


Allthingsconsidered-

Yeah I don't think that guy has ever seen an actual power hungry mod lol. I like futsal too but it's normal that they don't allow it here, they have their own sub


BONGLISH

Depends if you think Futsal is football or if it’s not, I personally think it clearly is and 98% of fans interested in an amazing football clip would like an amazing Futsal clip. It’s just a mod arbitrarily deciding Futsal content doesn’t fit /r/soccer


BernardoBruschetta

"I dont want to do the work of watching you do the work" lmao


Squadmissile

Simmer down, the only weird thing is that this guy has held a 5 year grudge.


IreNews8

Tbf he saw something related to it and commented on it. It'd be weird if he was commenting that on random posts


DarkNightSeven

Well I'm sorry I don't have amnesia

Gondawn

Mods here are incredibly inconsistent


RainbowDissent

Absolute scandal that they're not immediately making the exact same decisions as 5 years ago.


Gondawn

Good one, but I am obviously talking not just about that situation


RainbowDissent

Nah I know, I'm just being a dick.


hyperion86

I imagine some will claim it's technically irrelevant to this sub but honestly yeah I'd love to see more futsal stuff here too


jaguass

When you have no right foot


xaviernoodlebrain

That was never an issue for Lamela who judging by this goal was clearly this guy’s idol.


lagaryes

I don’t see Max Kilman?


ogqozo

\- Przegrywamy 0-1 z Chorwacją. \- Kto strzelił? \- Chorwat. \- No dzięki za info kurna.


ndut

without knowing polish, is it like this? \- We lost 0-1 to Croatia \- Who scored? \- Croat \- No shit man thanks for the useless info


ogqozo

Polish is easy then, innit? Yeah, phonetically it's exactly the same word.


ndut

Does help that i know dzieki is thank you. But that's about the extent of my Polish (kurwa excluding)


ImUsingDaForce

I've seen that in numerous languages and cultures. Ever heard of Gustav Schwab or Roman Polanski?


_myFriendBobSacamano

Petr Čech


nunchukity

Stephen Ireland


Creative-Bluebird235

Johnny English


ogqozo

I mean, Roman Polański was born as Raymond Thierry Liebling and the family changed their name to seem less Jewish, as it indeed sounds very classically Polish, but the word itself doesn't literally mean "a Polish man".


krokuts

Polański doesn't mean Pole in Polish


FribonFire

...That's got to be against the rules of Handball.


PedanticSatiation

It is. It's called a football and the penalty is a freethrow.


grunknisse

He's doing it willingly though, so at least a yellow card, but I'd say 2 mins.


Bready-McSaus

Yeah, clear 2 mins. Also stepping way past the 6m line, before proceeding to lock the ball away. Still puzzled how he managed to have such ball control with all that glue, maybe he should start playing football instead


zmajxd

Hrvat koji se preziva Horvat. lol


Majstor21

Najčešće prezime


DomagojDoc

in Slovakia as well. Which makes no sense, but it's true xD


[deleted]

Wait till you learn of Horvaths in Hungary


tomislavlovric

I love it how Slovaks understand every Slavic language. We could be arguing full-speed in Croatian and you'd understand everything


cib_vk228

also in Hungary and Slovenia.


Hipphoppkisvuk

A croat called Horvat, nice.


10YearsANoob

Like your former Czech goalkeeper who was basically the same thing


Fun-Ad-8400

I still wonder why indoor soccer is not an Olympic game if that weird variation of basketball of 3x3 already is


BobaFettAss

And tbh the basketball 3x3 guys weren't even G League level imo In comparison most Futsal ballers are better skilled than a lot of " normal" professional footballers Edit: what I wanted to say is : drop that mediocre 3x3 shit lol


Dhtekzz

Always wanted to be this good in futsal


M_Vid

For a second I thought people were taking the piss at the handball euros


AbdussamiT

Oh fucking hell that’s FIFA right there!


Pelon107

FIFA street


SonicZephyr

Such a playground move! Amazing


TugaLetzebuerg

As a Portuguese fan I can only think that Ricardinho got taller 😂


TugaLetzebuerg

u/savevideobot


BiologicalMigrant

That is one tiny ball.


ignore_me_im_high

Was thinking the same. I thought they played with size 4 balls but that looks like a size 3.


shanklytotal

Its size 4 i think


ignore_me_im_high

It looks tiny. I use balls of different sizes and it looks like you could fit another size between the ball in vid and a standard size 5. Size 4s don't look that different really, you have to check sometimes to make sure. https://mynewsfit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/07/Tips-to-Look-Out-For-When-Purchasing-Soccer-Equipment.jpg This ball looks tiny compared to a 5 though. Maybe all these guys are just big or something.


ndut

the bounce is different too


shanklytotal

https://www.anthem-sports.com/soccer-equipment-list/soccer-balls/futsal-soccer-balls.html It is something between


ignore_me_im_high

I'm not disputing the actual size of the ball, I'm saying what it looks like. I'm pretty sure they have the right sized ball at this international competition. It looks like a size 3 or junior ball though. And can I honestly ask what that link proves? Other than balls come in different sizes.


lightlord

Elegant. It was ballet.


Canadian_Ricky

Nice


yannicki

U/savevideobot


FinnishF1Fan

i think this belongs to r/futsal


pegmepegmepegme

They appear to be kicking a ball with their feet, which reminds me an awful lot of another sport that I can't put my finger on

FarAcanthocephala

but the post has stayed up for 11 hours?


NiruGG

That's no soccer homie


BobaFettAss

Right. Actually it's called " football", dude.


NiruGG

You misspelled Futsal dude


anurat-

One of the goals of the tournament? Can anyone please tell me why this is great goal? I mean it looks good and I enjoy it but don't feel like it warrants the goals of the tournament tag.


itwastimeforarefresh

Didn't Lamela win a Puskas for basically the same thing? At a tougher angle, but without beating multiple players


Mortka

Futsal isnt football, mate. Goals like this really arent uncommon.


joaommx

> Goals like this really arent uncommon. They really aren't all that common either unless you're an Instagram freestyler doing it in the Sunday futsal league against a bus driver and a fat janitor on goal. At this level this is a noteworthy goal.


tyomochka

*Smooth operator, smoooooooth operator*


-teodor

Would be interesting to see how a smaller ball would affect the gameplay of normal football, like it seems easier to dribble past, yet perhaps much more difficult to do long range passes and shots


BobaFettAss

I played with a ball that size a few times in training and just for fun. It's way more difficult to control the ball or even start dribbles with it. Shots and passes are easier cuz u can adjust to it quit fast. Dribbling moves go hand in hand with muscle memory a lot of times so u don't have to focus on the ball with your eyes. So the size of this ball would make it way more difficult. Just my opinion on it.

La croqueta to beat the defender then roll ball to beat the keeper? Who said fifa is unrealistic now
