The Beautiful Meaty French Forehead Of Olivier Giroud Is About To Get Meatier

Admirers of beauty around the world felt a strong disturbance in the force on Saturday. The mere thought on an Olivier Giroud shaved head will do that. 

Some folks are blessed with gorgeous faces, chiseled chins and beautiful hair. Others, like myself, would love to have just one of those traits. Giroud firmly falls into the former category, the Frenchman looking more like a model than a footballer. 

FIFA Men's World Cup Winners Ranked From Worst To Best

You know when you’re a young child growing up and your teachers at school or church tell you everyone was created equally and should be respected as such? Well that’s BS when it comes to World Cup winners. 

FIFA has put on 21 World Cups dating back to 1930. In them we’ve had deserving World Cup winners like Brazil in 1970 and Spain in 2010 and some underdog World Cup winners like Uruguay in 1950 or West Germany in 1954. 

Forget Who Actually Won. Here's Who Really Deserved To Win Every World Cup

Trevor Noah Gets Real In Response To Criticism For Saying Africa Won The World Cup

Trevor Noah is African; he is also a soccer fan. On an episode of The Daily Show With Trevor Noah this week, the comedian celebrated a World Cup victory for Africa, because many of France’s players are of African descent. But the Trevor Noah France comments did not go over too well with everyone, including French ambassador to the U.S. Gérard Araud. 

“I said Africa won the World Cup,” Noah said. “I was shocked at how angry a lot of French people got.”

Photoshop Artists Fool Everyone With Laughable Fake FIFA Team Of The World Cup

FIFA released its team of the World Cup a few days ago, and it stirred up a bit of debate on social media outlets as it looked like FIFA had made some interesting decisions. 

In the era of fake news, some find it difficult to discern what is fact and what is not. For two Twitter users, Fredrik (@F_Edits) and @ClinicalFirmino, they single-handedly managed to troll almost every soccer fan in the world.
