This stunt emanates from the game between RW Essen and Fortuna Dusseldorf II in the second tier of the German Fussball Bundesliga. This then led us to the collected free-kick majesty of Juninho – acknowledged by many as the greatest free-kick specialist of all time.
This particular Juninho played for Olympique Lyonnais and Brazil and is still in the game, currently turning out for Vasco Da Gama in the Brasileirão, at the age of 38. His free-kick style influenced the likes of Ronaldo, Messi, Neymar and Beckham and is often based on the “knuckle-ball” baseball style, where the ball exhibits no spin in the air and dips and wobbles unpredictably.
Totally fools Oliver Kahn at 1:15 like a boss!
