Sports News Without Fear, Favor or Compromise

Indirect free kicks in the penalty area are one of soccer’s rarest occurrences, mostly due to the handful of circumstances that can create them. We featured one from Carlos Tevez a few weeks ago, and here’s another that happened last night in Colombia’s top division as Cortuluá’s Carlos Ibargüen hammered one home against Patriotas to put the home side up 2-0. The keeper almost managed to get his hands on this one, but Ibargüen’s placement was just too perfect.

(Since someone will ask: this IFK resulted from a handled pass back to the keeper.)
