This Japanese football team’s Ring-a-roses showed them thinking outside the box
Takagawa Gakuen’s 4-2 win over Star Ridge in the National High School Soccer Tournament took a turn for the unexpected when Takagawa Gakuen won a free kick.
Here’s what happened.
In the history of unorthodox free-kick routines, Ring-a-Ring o Roses is a new one. Bravo, Takagawa Gakuen High School. pic.twitter.com/sQPkqYtPAC

Nah this is the most hilarious thing ever. Any team that concedes to this must feel so embarrassed, they literally danced around and still scored. https://t.co/NY5zdZHsFG

If whoever gets promoted next year doesn't do this first game, send them straight back down https://t.co/PyPjz2OCUO

In most Premier league games they go straight to the 'atishoo we all fall down' bit.

It seems it wasn’t an entirely original stunt.
