Indirectly atrocious free kick from Denmark
by Samuel Charles, November 12th, 2012 11:37PM

TAGS:  video


[VIDEO PICK: Off the Post] Nicklas Helenius provides the hands down worst indirect free kick this season in the Danish Superliga, from six yards out.

Helenius is a promising young striker for AaB who made his first appearance for the Danish senior national team in August. And at 21-years-old and 6-foot-5, he may have just what it takes to succeed --- talent, time to leave a better impression, and size to defend his honor in the meantime --- after this moment of ignominy at Silkeborg in a 2-1 loss earlier this year.

Six yards away, 11 defenders and a teammate on the goal line, indirect free kick from dead center.

Roll tape ...

    A la Sergio Ramos?

    Yes ... well ... he knows he would do well to play the ball high to reduce the chances of the shot being blocked by bodies ... a bad miss, but not on the level of most gaffes we see
