VIDEO: FIFA president Gianni Infantino kicks corner kick straight out of play

Not a set piece specialist.

FIFA president Gianni Infantino put a corner kick straight out of play behind the goal while playing in a match during the association’s internal tournament.

The 49-year-old Swiss-Italian stepped up to take the set piece but sent it harmlessly out of the reach of any of his team-mates attacking it.

BREAKING: Gianni Infantino has been re-elected as FIFA president until 2023 after being the only candidate to run in the election.

Notable in this clip is the shape of his foot as he skews the kick – it looks like a wild swing of the boot, and it’s not clear if this works for him usually.

But he is of course the boss, having recently been reelected unopposed into his position until 2023, so no one complains.
