Footballers Share French Kiss on the Field: VIDEO


A goal celebration kiss between two French footballers at the Weserstadion in Bremen, Germany is making some headlines in Europe.

The Local reports:

Mathieu Debuchy, a midfielder with Lille, passed the ball to Montpellier player Olivier Giroud, who scored. Debuchy then ran to Giroud who grabbed his head with both hands and kissed his teammate. The video clip of the embrace was played repeatedly on news shows and shared online.

#Debuchy was still a trending Twitter tag on Thursday morning

The goal was Giroud's first for his national team. He is currently the top scorer this year in France's leading football league, Ligue 1.

  4. Totes adorbs!

    Frenchmen take it to extremes, I find. Unattractive Frenchmen are truly ugly, but an attractive Frenchman is practically godlike in his handsomeness. There isn't much middle ground there.

  5. Great! Now I'm all hot and bothered at 7:30am. Sure beats being pissed off, I guess.

  6. This is the REAL "Tebowing" don't you think?
    Love the trend by the way, and I don't care what the sexuality of the participants is, the sight of two men kissing warms my *ahem* heart.

  8. I saw this during the highlights on Fox Soccer Channel the other night and thought, they're just French. I'm surprised it's making waves in Europe.

  10. Hahaha, RICK said "Hot" like a gay guy would.
    I mean a masculine homosexual man would write "That's cool, dude."
    Simply posting the word "Hot" is such a sad reflection of learned gay-male effeminate one-word commenting, like Perez Hilton's "Hawt" and other such current un-masculine gay nonsense.

  11. Sorry to be busting this collective bubble so early in the morning, but actually, they are not kissing (although i could totally see sthg like this happen in france or elsewhere in europe, where a kiss is less likely to put everybody in a collective "they're gay!!!" screaming trance)

    check this story by (kind of like what the advocate is in the usa; it's in french, however).

    on a side note, giroud was voted sexiest soccer player in france's premier league (the L1) by tetu...

  12. Hey Shane,

  13. Hot.

  14. @Michael: That whooshing noise is Shane's comment over your head.

  15. men in Europe aren't afraid of PDA

    Posted by: Oliver | Mar 2, 2012 9:12:34 AM

  16. Wicked hot.

    Posted by: Artie | Mar 2, 2012 9:18:12 AM

  17. Ah, those French guys... so un-embarrassed by showing their true feelings. This would be completely horror-inducing if it happened in the U.S.

    Posted by: johnny | Mar 2, 2012 9:18:55 AM

  18. This would happen in American football, but the helmets get in the way.

  19. @Oliver,

    Give me a phuking break. Why has it created controversy in Europe if everyone in Europe is cool with male/male PDA? And are you telling me all 'Europeans' are one culture? No, they're aren't. And BTW the most 'progressive' Europeans are northern, especially the Scandinavians. Trust me, Scandinavians aren't exactly known for their PDA.

    This pic is designed to get ATTENTION and PUBLICITY, which in turn means readership/viewership + advertising money. Simple as that. It also creates a 'buzz' around the players.

  20. The angle make it look it's mouth to mouth. It seems to be more like a more extreme and enthusiastic version of the cheek kissing that's very common in France and also in some southern European countries

  21. But, but, they're French....

  22. @Johnny,

    Yeah, just like how 'horrified' everyone is over like, oh I don't know, MMA fighter Dakota Cochrane playing in the UFC. Or how horrified people are the 'questionable' antics and attire of many professional athletes.

  23. Get over it frigid 'mericans.. That is just so normal, even we Germans do it. Did you see the kiss between Scholes and Neville 2 seasons ago? no you didnt, because you are all collectively just so negatively conditioned by your culture. I know you all got irked when the whole male crew of The Artist kissed each other on stage at the Oscars..

  24. Gays ruin everything. I know better than to read comments on here. You take something as hot as two studs celebrating on the field and the deconstruct the fun and sex right out of it. What a bunch of miserable queens. Just enjoy the f@cking thing. Don't worry about whether or not it's a real kiss or if they have hard ons or if the Euro will collapse over it.

  25. 'Get over it frigid 'mericans.. That is just so normal, even we Germans do it.'


    Yeah, to be a member of the 'master' also set up 'death' camps where you gassed and cremated in big converted pizza ovens millions of 'undesirable' humans and cause wars that killed an estimated 100 million people over the past 100 years.

    And let's not forget your northern European brothers and sisters in the Netherlands and Scandinavia who legalized child pornography [yes, like 5 year olds being raped by adults] in the 'liberal' 1970s. Or the German-French Green MEP Daniel Cohen who admits he worked and helped operate a children's school in Berlin during the 70s where they set up 'F*ck' rooms for children [children, not teenagers] to f*ck, and where he fondly reminisced about being masturbated by children.
