Watch MLS team catch out opponents with classic corner trick

Tom Victor

Sometimes the oldest trick in the book is the last thing your opponents will suspect.

Sir Alex Ferguson’s Manchester United team perfected the sneakiest of sneaky corner routines, having one player touch the ball so another can run forward from the corner flag and catch the defence unawares.

But if you thought every team was on the lookout for the crafty trick, you would be wrong.

After Lloyd Sam touches the ball and runs away, Sacha Kljestan is free to run through and tee up French defender Ronald Zubar for the equaliser.

Sadly for the Red Bulls, it wasn’t enough to prevent them falling to a 3-2 defeat against the Chicago Fire.
