Norwegian Drunk Football Is Just The Best Thing Ever

Forget a goal being disallowed for offside or because you've accidentally stroked the goalkeeper with a feather what football really needs is disallowed goals because the goalscorer isn't drunk enough, that's exactly what you get with this drunk football from Norway.

Norwegian drunk football is pretty simple. It's your usual game of five-a-side only before the match players have to drink to the extent that their blood alcohol concentration is 1.0, that's some heavy boozing.

And it doesn't stop with pre drinks. The players have to maintain that level otherwise their goals are disallowed. Of course hilarity and terrible football ensues, as does one of football's greatest comebacks:

It really warms your heart that the drunkest man on the pitch scores a late late winner from 3-0 down. As for fan engagement, the fans are invited in to the changing room pre kick-off to join in the drinking. This truly is a sport of kings!

Football and alcohol do go hand in hand, with that being evident recently when former Swedish international Kennedy Bakircioglucelebrated a banging 30-yard free-kick by catching and downing a beer.

The former Ajax man, capped 14 times by his country, was a bit of a Championship Manager favourite back in the day and even had a trial with Manchester United.

Now 37-year old, he's in the final year of his second spell in the Swedish capital with Hammarby IF, where he is the club's captain.

His career may have just peaked when he channelled his inner Stone Cold Steve Austin after whacking in a belter from a dead-ball situation.
