German side score ingenious team goal from kick-off

Published 1 Comments

The long ball isn't very fashionable right now - but we have a feeling that a few more goals like this may bring the ol' kick-and-rush roaring back into the beautiful game.

Showing the likes of Stoke the way forward is RB Leipzig (you won't be surprised to learn given their name that they are backed by a popular brand of energy drink) who come up with a more novel, refined way of lumping it long.

They seems to have concluded that if you are going to play it long then it is best to have pretty much everyone up the field right away from kick-off. And that's just what they did against fell 3rd Liga rivals Stuttgart II.

With scant regard for what might happen if their plan didn't come off, seven players bombed forward from the first whistle, before the ball was teed up for a defender to punt long.

With so many options up the field it was no surprise that Leipzig claimed the first and second ball before Daniel Frahn put it in the net to round off what was actually a brilliantly conceived team move.

Although they went on to win the game 3-1 the question remains; could they do it on a wet Wednesday in Stoke. Actually, they probably could.
