One of the most surprising happenings this week in the world of soccer was the upset of Barcelona by PeƱarol. A loss is tough to take for anyone, but when you’ve recently teamed two of the brightest stars in the sport and lose by a penalty kick from a yellow card, it’s that much worse.

As for the footwear, Lionel Messi switched up his Chameleon adidas F50 adiZero for a bright, new colorway, and goalkeeper Iker Casillas somehow found an even more attention-grabbing pair of Reebok U-Form than Messi wore.

Check out the latest shots from around the world of soccer below.
