for all the people that think its easy, you do it with your friend and have a goalie be in the box.

The thing you don`t see while watching the video is this. The other player HAS to remain outside the box until the initial kick, and has to outrun the goalie to the ball and successfully kick it back to the original player BEFORE the other opponent players reach him to intercept the pass, then he has to not hurry when kicking the ball in for the score.

All that has to be done within about 5 seconds.

Do it, then call it easy.

You have to be interested in football to know how that`s genius, because its so simple. It`s thinking `outside of box` of what convential penalties are like.

Reminds me of when I saw a clip of gridiron, and it was supposed to be an amazing play because the ball got passed twice. Then I had a WTF about how it was so great.

i would have never thought of that, i gotta use it next time i play soccer, i think its too risky though, better chance to just take the penalty shot

I thought it was nifty. If it was easy, everyone would be doing it, and if everyone did it, it wouldn`t be cool, but the point is that no one expected it. It was an ingenious ploy, that`s all.

Soccer`s version of an onside kick.

Manorrd, are you kidding? If so, you have an awful sense of humour, if not, you should get your head checked.

So the fact that he passed the ball to trick someone is amazing? Lame.

Cool goal, but they couldn`t speak english very well.

It`s like they kept substituing in completely different words for everything they were talking about to the point where they couldn`t even be understood.

This is a good penalty, very roostery, but that just makes it funnier when it backfires like Arsenals

rcos is right but that doesnt fully explain it and MoOk is totally wrong: as long as he penalty taker only touches the ball once before someone else touches it, its legal. The ball has to be hit goalbound, but `goalbound` is forward, he does hit it forward, just at an angle for the onrunning player to round the goalie and pas it back, well done, Arsenal attempted, shown by Bennyd`s link and it failed miserably haha

always has been and still is legal. He cant touch the ball 2 times w/o someone else touching it. when the kick is started, all other people have to be outside the big box and the goalie on the goal line. Amazing? not really, tricky yes. But equally as difficult to pull off if not more so than the other one posted. The other free kick is just fancy footwork, this took timing, preperation, and still accuracy and ball control. Both are good, this just takes some soccer knowledge to appretiate.

IS that even legal? Isn`t the kick meant to be directed a the goal, boundary, or keeper?

Well, it was in the Cruiff days, so maybe it was changed later on.
