Is This The Worst Free Kick Ever?

Straight off the training ground this one.

Hours of practice must have gone into refining this piece of set piece genius, with the parties involved desperately waiting to try it out in a real match situation. But it didn't quite go to plan.

Liverpool unveiled a contender for the worst free kick of all-time in their Premier League win against Bournemouth last night. Midfielder Emre Can touched the ball to James Milner and, with Christian Benteke steaming in, looking ready to blast the ball goalwards, he promptly spun round to take the shot himself, with less-than-stunning results.

Legendary Twitter account Boring James Milner was not slow to capitalise on this opportune moment, with their usual high quality wit.

However, was it the worst free-kick ever? Actually, probably not. Surely, the title must go to this effort from poor Sam Corcoran who took the kick for Chelmsford City in a promising position against Hayes and Yeading. Watch through your eyes...
