Indirect Free Kicks Are Funny

Indirect free kicks from a few yards out seem to be the preserve of lower leagues, but there is the occassional one in a big match. Usually, hilarity ensues, as the defending team try to get everyone one the goal line, waiting to charge, while the team that has the free kick tee it up for the bloke on their team who can welly it the hardest. Such is their rarity, that teams take forever to organise themselves and it all end up looking like a Chinese fire drill.

This video is no different. The team in white are winning 1-0 by the way.

The outcome?
