With their lead in little doubt, Borussia Monchengladback of the German Bundesliga was awarded a penalty kick.
Unable to choose who’d take the free kick – and, perhaps, to spice things up a bit – strikers Marco Reus and Mike Hanke played rocks-paper-scissors to settle the matter.
“We didn’t want to make fun of anyone. Mike was supposed to be the shooter, but he already had a brace. And I also wanted to score. That’s why I suggested that we figure it out,” Reus told Bild.
And figure out it they did.
We hope this catches on. Adding mini-games may be soccer in America’s only hope.
