New kick-off rule

Post by daib0 » Tue Mar 21, 2017 6:23 pm

Fast start:

Last year the International Football Association Board (IFAB) tweaked the kick off rule so that “the ball can be kicked in any direction from kick off”. Brazilian footballer Mirrai certainly took full advantage of that when he scored with the very first touch of his side’s league match on Saturday.

Off the mark:
The striker scored for his new side Comercial in a match against Catanduvense in the second tier of Brazilian football. The goal was Mirrai’s first for the club in only his third appearance. Not a bad way to get off the mark.The thunderous effort caught the opposition cold, with the goalkeeper nowhere near his line. The goal sparked scenes of wild celebration as Mirrai and his teammates gathered on the pitch with substitutes and staff.

I don't think we've got any players capable of hitting the target from the half way line
