Anyone seen a direct goal from the corner taker?

I've just witnessed my first, D'Agostino smashed it and it curled around and into the net. I loved it!

I just wondering how often this happens? I can't recall seeing one before.

I have seen it once although in the pre patch version. Riquelme curled one right from the corner straight into the goal for my Villareal side. It was awesome...

Jerome Rothen got one today for me, only the 2nd one I've seen. I'm fairly sure it was Mati Fernandez who got me the first.

I think it happened against me once on my Bishop's Stortford game. Cant remember who scored it though.

I've seen it once in my career game - it was against me but I didn't care! I'm in 2021 and it happened last season, which I think is probably about right in terms of the number of times it happened (actually - maybe a couple of times more would be better, but that's fine!)

Danny Thomas scored for Redditch in my game doing that. He curled the ball that it swung into the far corner.

It happened to me on my Derby save, I was using fake players so i'm unsure who it was - it went straight in the far corner.

Sergio Mota scored a fluke from the corner for me... Legendary stuff...

But have you seen it for real? I had a boy play for my Sunday team and he did it no problem

As an England fan... yes :(

Never seen one live though.

Ah yes...Artim Sakiri (or something like that). 2-2 draw with Macedonia at St Marys. I was there. I've never properly recovered.

never seen one in the game, although i've noticed i've come close a few times recently
i've scored a few irl. all you need is luck, wind, a rubbish keeper and a peach of a right foot :p
