If you haven't seen Gianni Infantino take a corner kick, you NEED to

If you haven't seen Gianni Infantino take a corner kick, then you NEED to. You're in for a shock.

The 52-year-old has left fans stunned with his football technique, with a video surfacing of him taking a corner kick.

In what appears to be a charity match, the FIFA president can be seen taking a corner kick.

The clip shows him putting the ball down before taking a few strides back. He eyes the ball then looks up, hoping to pick out a teammate.

Infantino, sporting a captain's armband, ungracefully runs to the ball and kicks it straight out of play.

His questionable toe punt technique sent social media wild.

One Twitter user wrote: "No one in a blue shirt had any confidence that ball would ever reach the penalty box."

A second tweeted: "I'm not exaggerating in saying that is possibly the worst technique I have ever seen."

A third added: "A man who takes a corner like that shouldn’t be allowed near a football, never mind be in charge of it!"

Another commented: "Has he ever played the game before?"

Someone joked: "Was that a toe punt?"

Hopefully that was the one and only corner kick Infantino was on.

We saw a lot better corner kicks at the 2022 World Cup, with the FIFA boss hailing the winter tournament as the 'best World Cup ever'.

He said: "The first item I want to highlight and stress of course is the praise - the unanimous praise - of the FIFA Council for this World Cup, for the unique cohesive power that this World Cup has shown.

"The thanks to everyone who was involved, to, of course, Qatar, all the volunteers who work, all of your, everyone who has contributed to make this World Cup the best World Cup ever."

He also wants to hold the World Cup every three years as part of a long-term plan to revolutionise international football.
