Play of the day: Creative keeper uses motorbike

As far as social footy goes, trekking up the field to contest a corner can be something of a poisoned chalice.

Most of the time the service is poor, the goal-scoring opportunity disappears and a long sprint back into position lies ahead for the often-unfit players.

But not for this crafty Brazilian keeper.

Little is known of the creative keeper, or quite what he was doing coming up for a corner kick, but his quick thinking and sneaky friend saved him a full field-length sprint.

His friend loitered around by the goalposts on a motorcycle as the corner kick was cleared away, then boosted the keeper back to his goal on the bike, before the opposition could take advantage.

It could create a hot talking point for officials if attempted in a regulated game, as the use of a motorcycle on the field of play is something of a 'grey area' in the FIFA rulebook.
