Just saw an advert about some kind of a free kick competition held on Saturday, 19:00 CET IIRC.
It's about the worlds best free kick takers against the worlds best goal keepers... I found it pretty strange that I've never heard about this.
Just checked the website, the winning players gets 1m and the winning goal keeper wins 0.5m.

Definitely going to watch this.

LMAO at that list.

What a piece of crap seriously, apart from Juninho how many of those players actually take free kicks on a regular basis (there is a few non-europe players on that list that i'm admitedly not sure on) and who else is even decent at them?

No Pirlo, Riquelme.. Ronaldinho and ADP are wildcards etc.

pretty funny :D

although i guess a lot of the players from Euro's would turn the competition down.

This is the second tournament. The first was held in 2004.

2004 Results (wikipedia):

1st: Ugur Yildirim (SC Heerenveen) - 25 points
2nd: Shen Si (Shangai Zhonguan) - 20 points
3rd: Benjamon Zarandona (Real Betis) - 12 points
4th: Nastja Ceh (Club Brugge) - 10 points
5th: Zinedine Zidane(Real Madrid) - 8 points
6th: Hamilton Ricard (Apoel Nicosia) - 8 points
7th: Orlando Engelaar (RC Genk) - 6 points
8th: Constantin Galca (Almeria) - 1 point

Looks like Zidane got beat by a bunch of relatively no-names. :howler:
