Is this the greatest free-kick routine of all time?

There is nothing like watching a training ground routine come to life on the pitch.

Most of the time these routines come to no avail, but when they come off it's a special moment for the players and coaches who created it behind closed doors.

Such a routine was executed in emphatic fashion in Japan this week when J2 League side Kyoto Sanga scored a contender for most creative free-kick ever.

Awarded an indirect free-kick inside the penalty box, the team had to get creative. No less than three players dummied the ball before one player tapped it back to Yosuke Ishibitsu, who did the damage with an absolute thunderbolt.

We're not sure if the dummies were necessary - the goalkeeper seemingly had no chance of saving the strike. But we appreciate the aplomb nonetheless and we're glad we can share it with you now.
