Brazilian Club's Unique Wall To Stop Free-Kick (VIDEO)

Cristiano Ronaldo went under the wall to beat Bayern Munich - and goalkeeper Manuel Neuer last week - so a Ponte Preta player was tasked with lying behind the barrier in an attempt to limit Paraná Clube's attacking midfielder Lúcio Flávio options from a set-piece.

The bizarre, if logical, method to thwarting a free-kick came during clubs' Copa do Brasil contest, only Lúcio Flávio ridiculed the wall by going over the wall and equalising.
