WATCH: How not to defend a free kick

Barnet and Northampton conjured up a impressive reenactment of Zaire’s tutorial on how to defend free-kicks conducted when playing Brazil at the 1974 World Cup.

The African minnows famously, and comically, booted the ball away from the free-kick spot before the Brazilians even had a chance to work their Samba magic.

Barnet, perhaps wary of League Two high fliers Northampton's impressive routine against Luton earlier this season, did the same thing with former Arsenal youth product Gavin Hoyte dashing out from the wall and booting the ball away.

Not that it mattered much as Northampton comfortably triumphed 3-0.

Watch the free-kicks below.
