This corner kick setup is unique, but not effective

Tuesday November 11th, 2014


Coaches in all sports are always looking for fresh ways to approach the game. For this Czech soccer coach, that means applying lessons learned on playgrounds to professional sports. 

This is from this weekend's meeting between FK Příbram ​and FK Teplice​. Příbram​ attempts to confuse the defense by having its player jump around in a circle before the corner kick. This is a good idea in theory, but the kick sent just beyond the reach of the attacker and over the line for a goal kick.

If it had worked, it would have been cool. Instead, the players just end up looking silly.
