Video: Is this the funniest free-kick ever?

Published 8 Comments

We here at GMF are very keen on schadenfreude, whether it comes in the form of a cock-up from the penalty spot, a calamitous own goal or a referee getting clouted by an over-zealous player.

But no example has made us laugh more heartily than a free-kick gone wrong in Austria, during which an SC Weiz player takes the ball straight in the chops during a contrived set-piece routine.

You could say the unfortunate recipient of the ball in his face deserves it given the ridiculous set-up of the SC Weiz free-kick, but we'll let you be the judges of that.

Watch the hilarous incident in the video above, and thanks to 101greatgoals for another excellent spot.
