Italian soccer strategy gets a racy look

Catania, a team in the country’s top division, unveiled the new look while taking a free kick. The players lined up in a wall and dropped their shorts in an effort to block the goalkeeper’s vision.

Walter Zenga of the ex and very evil Inter Milan hatched this idea as early as 1988. Where as a player he claimed it amazed him that such a move has never been done before.So he waited till he became a manager to test the rule book. On set peice pull down your pants and see it it provides the distraction necessary.

Great site..Keep up the good work

Pep -- good to know! I would expect that if it becomes more prevalent a rule will be added to the book. Thanks!

Forza Roma!!

There are Laws of the Game I believe which the referee could easily use to thwart this behavior... however it is possible Italian soccer referees like this sort of thing, I really don't know.

Anyway, I'd think it more appropriate for co-ed soccer.
