Mainz Striker Pretends To Tie Shoelace, Scores After Defender Goes To Sleep

Mainz Striker Pretends To Tie Shoelace, Scores After Defender Goes To Sleep

Mainz striker Robin Quaison displayed some incredible gamesmanship to fool his defender en route to scoring against Hertha Berlin at the weekend.

With Mainz having a throw-in on the right side in Hertha's half, the Swede pretended to tie his shoelace and made the defender marking him believe he could have a bit of a breather for a brief moment.

But when the throw-in was sent down the flank and into the channel, the 26-year old lost his marker and raced to the far post to tap home.

It was cheeky but complete and utter genius at the same time and you could see how frustrated Marius Wolf was when he knew he'd been done over.

Quaison, who has played for both Palermo and AIK in his career, then went on to score a further two in the second half and bag his second career hat-trick - the first coming in a 5-0 thrashing of Werder Bremen in December.

He's struck 11 times in 20 appearances in the Bundesliga this term, averaging a goal every 148 minutes.

In one of our other favourite examples of footballing shithousery, back in December Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk put Everton's Moise Kean off when he was running through by shouting at the young Italian in the 4-2 win at Anfield.
