Juventus’ Paulo Dybala scored one of the strangest free-kicks you’ll ever see

Summer gives footballers a bit off time off.

Juventus and Argentina star Paulo Dybala returned to his home town of Laguna Larga this week, and took part in a charity match. The pitch wasn’t quite Serie A standard – it appeared to be mostly sand instead of grass – but that didn’t stop him scoring this incredible free kick.

As he lined up the set piece on the edge of the box, it looked like nothing out of the ordinary. That was, until the all the opposition players decided to go and stand on the goal line – including some of the subs. The keeper and some defenders were even hanging off the cross bar. And then some fans ran on the pitch and joined the wall as well!

 Not that any of that mattered though – Dybala still managed to float it perfectly into the centre of the goal.
