French Soccer Players Kiss Passionately After German Victory (VIDEO)

Tim Tebow may have generated headlines when he celebrated teammate Demaryius Thomas's late game rescue with a kiss last fall, but the Denver Broncos quarterback's smooch looks positively chaste compared to what went down between two French soccer players on the field this week.

The Local reports that Mathieu Debuchy, a midfielder with Lille, passed the ball to Montpellier player Olivier Giroud, who scored. After their ultimate 2-1 victory over Germany, the two French national team players embraced in a passionate lip-lock that has gotten tongues wagging in the blogosphere.

Whether or not there was any tongue involved in the kiss itself remains a mystery.
