Trick Corner Kick: Wayne Rooney & Ryan Giggs of Manchester United

Wayne Rooney goes over like he's going to take the corner but instead, cleverly, puts the ball on the line for the corner and then rolls it into play with the bottom of his foot. Ryan Giggs saunters over, acting like he’s going to now take the proper corner kick but turns and dribbles the ball towards goal and serves in a quick cross which Cristiano Ronaldo heads home at the near post.

Chelsea was caught unawares and on their back foot, but the goal is disallowed. The linesman doesn't realize what had happened, that Rooney put the ball into play when he first came over to take the corner. Fortunately, Manchester scores shortly there after. The question to many was, should Rooney have told the linesman that he was playing the ball in, or did he even have to? I don’t think he had to say anything. In the post game interview Alex Ferguson said the trick corner was planned.

 

Of course, this wasn't the first time this type of corner kick as been tried. Here's another version of this play, this time by Mladen Petric and Ivan Rakitic, two Croatian footballers playing for French side Basel. They go right at goal after they pull it off.
