WIN: The "Chapeau" Set Piece
Chapeau... as in "hat!" Yes!!! Finally an application for all those years I took French in grade school.
Though I must admit, the "hat" set piece just doesn't quite have the same ring to it-- nor does it do justice to this incredible piece of footwork from a pair of players from a team that... no one has quite figured out yet.
Obviously, because of the writing on YouTube it was assumed that teams were from an Arabic-speaking country, but someone in the comments at Who Ate All The Pies noticed an ad board that was in Russian or Ukranian (they said), and another person confidently told us that it's from a match in Belarus.
And here's how a quick Google translation of the originating page describes it:
A European court has seen one of the coolest shots and most innovative in the implementation of free-kicks that have been translated into goals.
Carried out by the ball players are very innovative in terms lifted one to the other, who shot this may seem normal and natural, but after your viewing of the video are going to change your opinion for sure.
Hilarious! But does any of this help us to narrow down who pulled this piece of (possibly illegal*) magic? Not so much. Still, it sure is a hell of a set piece...
