German club sends eight players into the box from kick-off and scores

Sep 17, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT


Kick-offs in soccer are fairly standard.

Normally, teams simply play the ball backwards looking to begin the match with a bout of possession.

Sometimes, possession is ceded in favor of lumping the ball towards the corner flag to try and pin the opposition back.

And occasionally, a goal-hungry striker will just have a go at it alone.

This past Saturday, however, German association club RasenBallsport Leipzig e. V. created a new approach when they lined up eight players to dash into the box against 3. Liga opponents Stuttgart II.

The risky move worked like a charm as the long ball was skimmed on to Mattias Morys, who crossed to the onrushing Daniel Frahn to finish from five yards out.

The total time for the entire play? Nine seconds.

Leipzig went on to win the match, 3-1, proving once again that Red Bull gives you wiiings.

    risky play, but I love it! If they lose possession the other team would also have a chance at a breakaway goal.
