Becky G Smokin' Hot Date Night ... w/ Injured MLS Star

5/27/2017 12:30 AM PDT

If your girlfriend was the insanely hot smokeshow Becky G, you'd fight through a super painful foot injury to go on a date, too ... just ask L.A. Galaxy star Sebastian Lletget

The pro soccer player is still recovering from surgery to repair a Lisfranc fracture -- but busted out the walking boot and the crutches to hit Catch in West Hollywood with his "Power Rangers" girlfriend. 

24-year-old Lletget went under the knife in March. He's expected to be in a walking boot for several more weeks and hopes to get back on the field in August. 

Becky's been by his side the entire time -- even posing for pics with Sebastian in the operating room (though he doesn't remember taking the pic).

Argentinian Soccer Star Racist Pose for Chinese Team Shoot ... Outrage Ensues

Stupid. Stupid. Stupid. Stupid. Stupid. Stupid. 

Here's Argentinian soccer stud Ezequiel Lavezzi striking that stupid pose racist people do when trying to impersonate a Chinese person.

The photo was part of a promotional shoot for Lavezzi's pro team in the Chinese Super League. EL says he was just trying to make "funny faces ... for entertainment purposes."

Once the pic surfaced online, people were pissed -- saying the pic is racially insensitive ... because it is.

Lavezzi says he had "no intention of insulting the Chinese people and did not do it with any bad intentions."

He added, "I deeply apologize if this photo has offended the Chinese public and fans. I will be more careful in the future."

Lavezzi clearly didn't learn from Pau Gasol's mistake -- when Pau and the Spanish basketball team struck the same pose before the 2008 Olympics in Beijing.

Stupid.

Denmark Soccer Team Fined Fans Threw Dead Rats at Players

A Denmark soccer team was fined some serious cheese after fans pelted opposing players with dead rats ... giant dead rats. 

It all went down when the Brondby IF football club was playing rivals F.C. Copenhagen on April 17 -- and Brondby fans started throwing massive dead rodents at the opposing team.

Brondby immediately hit the rat-chuckers with a 1-year ban -- but now the Denmark Football Federation has stepped in to fine the club 150,000 kroner (roughly $17,000).

The question ... where did the fans even get the dead rats in the first place?? 

What's worse for Brondby, they didn't even win the game ... they lost 1-0.

Rats.

Cristiano Ronaldo Denies Rape Story ... 'Journalistic Fiction'

Exclusive Details

Cristiano Ronaldo is adamant he did NOT rape a woman in Las Vegas back in 2009 -- and then pay her a fortune in cash to keep her quiet ... this according reps for the soccer superstar.

Ronaldo's personal team is responding to a story in a German newspaper which claims CR7 paid a woman roughly $375k in hush money after she claimed he raped her in a Vegas hotel room.

In a statement, Ronaldo's people shot the article down as B.S. -- saying it's "nothing but a piece of journalistic fiction."

"The accusations reported by the Der Spiegel are false, and Cristiano Ronaldo will do everything in his power to react against these. An accusation of an act of rape is disgusting and outraging, and he will not allow it to hang over his reputation."

Ronaldo's people go on to explain, "The alleged victim refuses to come forward and confirm the veracity of the accusation. The newspaper has based their entire narrative on documents which are unsigned and where the parties are not identified, on emails between lawyers whose content does not concern Cristiano Ronaldo and whose authenticity he cannot verify, and on an alleged letter that is said to have been sent to him by the so-called victim, but was never received by Cristiano."

By the way, we also reached out to law enforcement in Vegas but they had no record of a sexual assault allegation involving Ronaldo from 2009.
