New York Red Bulls execute perfect free-kick routine against Dallas

Published 8 Comments

Cheltenham Town produced unquestionably the worst free-kick routine of the season against Tranmere back in February - scroll down this page to see that dismal effort - but New York Red Bulls showed how it should be done with a brilliantly executed team free-kick against Dallas on Friday night.

Four New York Red Bulls players were initially stood over the ball before the referee blew his whistle.

Two of them ran over it and another backed away before Sacha Kljestan dinked the ball to the back post, where Sal Zizzo headed across goal for Lloyd Sam to tap home. (Scroll down to watch the free-kick).
