Catania use stripper tactics in unconventional free-kick routine

Yesterday we brought you news of Walter Zenga’s outburst on Italian television after the Catania boss fell into a war of words during his post match interview. And Catania remain in the headlines this morning after attention has centred on their bizarre tactics employed at Torino.

While taking a free kick, three Catania players lined up in a second wall in front of Torino keeper, before dropping their shorts in an attempt to block the vision of Matteo Sereni in goal. The ploy worked to perfection, with Giuseppe Mascara converting the free-kick.
