“That strange incident occurred in the Danish competition last season. Check the video!”
1NEWS – At worst a free kick, will definitely aim at the goal, or at least 1-2 meters from the bar. However, what players in the Danish League do is very strange. His free-kick ball did not go towards the goal, but bounced over the roof of the stadium.
Becoming a set-piece specialist is not easy in football. Especially if there is a heavy burden to carry. But, when you step out, you have to believe in yourself.
If you are a player who has earned the trust of your team-mates, don’t follow what Emil Holm did when Sonderjyske met Vejle Boldklub in the Danish Superliga 2020/2021. This happened last season. But, it still continues to go viral and is talked about by many people until now.
At that time, Holm took charge of the free kick in the Velje defense area. The distance, about 30 meters from the goal.
At first, all seemed convincing. The Swedish player, who was then 21 years old, took a stance like Roberto Carlos. Then, Holm decided to kick the ball with all his might. Instead of aiming for the goal, the ball bounced high over the roof of the stadium and out into the parking lot.
Even though the incident took place in 2021, many people are still commenting on various social media platforms to this day.

“What is he doing? Maybe he’s after a bird over the stadium. LOL,” wrote one Twitter user. Another added: “Maybe he thinks he’s Roberto Carlos”. Another wrote: “Worst free-kick ever on the planet”.

The person who made the strange kick, Emil Alfons Holm, is a graduate of IFK Goteborg. In the 2021 winter transfer window, he moved to Sonderjyske. However, in the summer of the same year he moved to Spezia, before returning to Sonderjyske on loan until now.
Holm earned the confidence to take a free kick because of his position as a right full back. Among his peers, he is known to have a strong right-footed kick ability.

I've been impressed with his defensive positioning leading to the interceptions in this season, but also with his attacking contribution: 3 goals and 4 assists so far. pic.twitter.com/r5hnnSUiBi
