Olé, Olé: Google's Soccer Doodle

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) --If you're all flummoxed over the Manchester United (MANU - Get Report) IPO, Google (GOOG) has you covered with all the excitement from the pitch, with another Olympic-inspired "doodle."

Google has been trucking out Olympic-themed "doodles" this week, with both a track & field and a slalom canoe game.

The game is very similar to the two previous games. Players use the left and right arrow keys to move the goalie side-to-side, and the up arrow key to jump when blocking shots. The game goes on until you give up three goals.

Gamers can post their times to Google+, do a search on London 2012 soccer and get a variety of information and tidbits, including medal count, schedule, and where to watch the games.

You may not be able to work on your "Beckenbauer" or "nutmeg" moves, but you could reenact your best Hope Solo or Gianluigi Buffon impersonations.
