VIDEO: The best and the worst of the beautiful game

I hope everyone has a great weekend, celebrating the holidays or otherwise. I don’t anticipate a lot of Sounders news over the next couple days, but wanted to provide a couple video clips from the soccer world in the meantime.

The first is the latest rendition of the “Showboat” feature on Sky Sports’ Soccer AM and represents the best skill the week had to offer.

The second is perhaps the most shameful dive I’ve seen in quite some time, by a world-class star like Bayern Munich’s Arjen Robben, no less.
