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 ...

    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
