Is it normal for a soccer player to go into the opponent's goal and drink the goalie's water? Zlatan Ibrahimovic did it in Sweden-England yesterday after yelling at Joe Hart following Sweden's go-ahead, 2-1 goal.

What was the deal with Ibra yelling at Hart? So long to the biggest wildcard of the tournament, non-Italian division.

I don't like the use of the orwellian phrase 're-education' in the title of that story. I'm glad I live in America where people are still free to be dicks.

The good news is that we still have one game left for Sweden in which they have absolutely nothing to play for, meaning Ibra can go full on crazy.

We might not use the word "re-education" so comfortably here, but we've mastered the concept too. Employers in the U.S. often make employees undergo sensitivity training after a controversy of this kind.

Me neither: it suggests Cassano paid attention the first time.

Czechs become the first team ever to win a European Championship group with a negative goal difference.
