      • Marcelo Balboa's Mustache

        I hope this link gets posted under every highlight this guy has for the rest of his life. I for one, will try to do my part. I’m still appalled that when this tape came out, CR was completely unashamed, and got mad about “illegal footage.”


      • iggy

        I mean what do they expect. Of course we have the ability to obtain footage of plays that happen on the field. We can control the weather for god’s sake, and make it snow 6 inches whenever we want! Obtaining footage is child’s play!


  • AcidBurn

    Somebody send the tape to Klinsy, here is someone else from CONCACAF playing at the “highest level”.

    Sarcasm aside, nice cut and bender though.


    • Gerard D.

      But really though, this kid–antics and character aside–is the exact type of player Klinsmann has talked about.

      Took a chance, went to Arsenal. Has played on loan at Lorient, Real Betis, and now broke into the starting lineup at Olympiakos.

      Watch the confidence he plays with. Every time he touched the ball he was at the defender, pushing the ball up field, taking players on with an arrogance you want in your players.


      • DCGooner

        I’m a big time Arsenal fan and can’t stand the sight of this guy. Unfortunately I think I’m going to have to cheer for him next year as I think he’ll be part of the squad.

      Oh god shut up. I dont hear you calling for some sort of punishment for all the dives dempsey, altidore, amd jones have done in the past. Stop being so butthurt


      • John

        I agree the dive ended up not mattering as the US beat Mexico with ease and finished on top of the Hex. I still don’t understand what Campbell thought he was giving out of the dive, perhaps just wasting time.


      • Dman

        Capmbells dive was the ultimate disgraceful act. it was not part of a play, or the result of contact. It doesn’t just hurt US fans, it hurts the sport. Campbell is a first class Jacka$$ in my book.


      • Bori

        A dive is a dive and this one is not different than the ones Clint Dempsey takes every game.

        Obviously at only 21 not only is Campbell better player than Dempsey he’s also a better diver. Something Clint has been working on for over a decade.


      • John

        Players all over the field, no where near the action should just start falling down rolling around. Then sit up to see if the ref is looking then go back to rolling around. Campbell has revolutionized the art of diving. A true innovator of the game.


      • Ryan

        IF Joel Campbell manages to hit 50 goals in the BPL, this comment won’t sound ridiculous.


      • What?

        Embellishing is one thing and what Campbell did is completely an other. By the way Cameron or Chandler, if healthy, is going to school your boy Ronaldo.


      • Maykol

        Yeah he is! Barcelona should sign cameron and chandler! Then madrid and ronaldo will be totally shut down! And barca will win the league!


  • Eric

    This changes nothing, Joel. You still rank up there with Ruiz, Marquez, and Frings as cartoon villains for any self-respecting USMNT fan.


  • Rob Jones

    Nice goal, he might end up having a solid career in Europe. And some people here need to get a grip.
