Dusan Tadic Somehow Manages To Score In-Direct Free-Kick, Despite Entire Team Standing On Goal-Line

Ajax playmaker Dusan Tadic managed to find the back of the net from a rare in-direct free-kick against FC Midtjylland, despite the entire team being stood on the goal-line.

The 31-year-old made it 2-0 against the Danish outfit after 13 minutes, just moments after Midtjylland's goalkeeper picked up a back pass in the Champions League Group D clash.

After the referee blew for an in-direct free-kick, all eleven opposition players decided to stand on the line but it wasn't enough.

Tadic took a short run up and smashed home. You certainly don't see this happen very often.

Ajax winger Antony opened the scoring in the first minute against Brian Priske's side, but an 18th minute goal from Anders Dreyer means the Danish Superliga are still in the contest after a poor start.

Tadic's in-direct goal was the talk of the first-half, however, and it's no surprise.

When was the last time you witnessed an in-direct free-kick go in the back of the net?

In terms of free-kick specialists, Dusan Tadic does not find himself in our TierMaker list ranking the best modern free-kick takers.

Former Lyon and Brazil midfielder Juninho Pernambucano was named the best ever free-kick specialist, while Cristiano Ronaldo, Roberto Carlos and Steven Gerrard were labelled in the 'Overrated' category.
