Alexi Lalas appeared on the Colbert Report last night to talk about soccer’s latest match-fixing scandal. It’s a solid 6 minutes of jokes about soccer which is always fun.

Of course, the highlight of the interview is when Lalas comes close enough to touching Stephen Colbert that Colbert is forced to take a dive. If you ask me, it looked like an embellishment.
