YouTube chart: the best virals from the past seven days

Every week we click back through the week to bring you the best online footage. You’re welcome.

10. We thought this was possibly one of the worst misses ever; Ecuador U-20 player Marlon de Jesus fluffing a sitter during the week.

9. … but then last night, while producing your minute-by-minute of the international action, we witnessed this attempt from Portugal’s Hugo Almeida against Argentina. What the what?

8. But we had a bit of a glaring miss ourselves. Despite packing the goals into the minute-by-minute, we didn’t include this corker from one of my favourite players/Dutchmen.

Wesley Sneijder puts Holland one up against Austria. Class.

H/T Balls.ie

7. I don’t know what Jamie Heaslip is selling but I’m ready to buy a crate of it after this video!

6. DJ Carey is i the papers this week for reasons other than his immaculate hurling. Let’s remind ourselves, just how good he was.

5. The following clip contains strong language from the start and scenes that some viewers may find disturbing. Anderson Hernanes tries to tackle Karim Benzema and nearly takes his head off.

4. This show reel from one aspiring quarter-back ahs been doing the rounds. He’s good – but shouldn’t he be in school or something?

3. During last Sunday’s Super Bowl broadcast, the Yankees’ super star short stop Alex Rodriguez was shown eating popcorn in the most A-Rod way possible.

He later apparently ‘went ballistic’ when he learned his loving moment with movie star girlfriend, Cameron Diaz, was broadcast to 110 million people.

2. Emmet from Action 81 sent us this one. He writes: “Found this during the week for the day job, it’s a tribute to Jimmer Fredette with some horrible singing from LaVell Edwards (ex BYU Football coach), Shawn Bradley (longtime Utah Jazz star), a former BYU tight end and a local DJ.”

It truly is appalling.

1. More amazing skills/trick photography from the All Blacks. Note to self: don’t ever invite Ma’a Nonu to a barbecue.
