Serbia’s Triple-Dummy Corner-Kick Routine Yields Goal of Pure Genius (Video)

Serbia's Triple-Dummy Corner-Kick Routine Yields Goal of Pure Genius (Video)“Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me,” the old saying goes. So what should we make of Moldova after it was fooled three times?

Serbia’s U-17 national team enchanted Moldova with a well-worked corner-kick routine. Soccer fans around the world are enjoying the goal that came as a result.

It took place during Monday’s UEFA U-17 European Championship qualifier. The Serbs won a corner kick and pulled off a piece of orchestrated magic.

The delivery was hit into the area, where one Serbian player dummied it. A trailing teammate then did the same. Then another one did it too.

It eventually came to Andrija Zivkovic, who calmly slotted it to the far post out of the reach of the awestruck goalkeeper.

The Serbian players celebrated by running to the sidelines and mobbing one of the coaches — hopefully the one who devised the brilliant routine.

The Moldovan teens have plenty of time to learn the valuable lesson in all this. What was it again?

Watch Serbia’s awesome goal in the video below.
