Karlsruher SC Come Up With The Most Bizarre And Creative Corner Kick Routine Ever

German side Karlsruher SC have gone viral after producing one of the most bizarre and creative set-piece routines ever seen.

KSC drew 0-0 with Jahn Regensburg in the German second tier and while it was a pretty drab affair, we did have some absolute corner kick madness in the first half.

The hosts had a corner from the right in the first half but adopted a very strange set-up as they prepared for the kick to be taken.


Only one player was lurking around the six yard box where you'd normally expect the ball to be sent in, with six standing on the line, of the 18-yard box, to the right.

Another was waiting on the edge of the area for the long-range strike. Then, when given the signal, the sextuple all darted into the area seconds before the delivery arrived.

Clearly, the thinking was that the unusual routine would confuse Regensburg and one of the attacking players would steal a run on the defender.


That did happen as the home side won the first and second ball on the corner. It would have paid dividends and we'd be talking about a game-changing passage had defender Christoph Kobald been able to keep his header on target.

After the first flick-on was won, the Austrian really ought to have scored.


A clip of the routine has garnered one million views on Twitter, with thousands of likes, retweets and shares for good measure.


Even when Benedikt Gimber was sent off for the visitors in the 78th minute, Karlsruher weren't able to find the net and the game finished goalless.

In 2016, VFL Bochum came up with a belter where they 'queued up' behind one another in the box and split - leading to a free man tapping home from close range at the far post.

In terms of the other gems that led to a goal, who can forget the disguised touch from Wayne Rooney that saw Ryan Giggs run with the ball off the corner and curl in a peach of a cross for Cristiano Ronaldo to have a goal incorrectly disallowed against Chelsea in 2009.


What's the best corner routine you've seen?
