Fantasy Football – 7 Different Types of Corner Kicks

Corner kicks are one of the many ways of restarting the play in fantasy football league. A corner kick is taken when the ball passes beyond the goal line, with the last touch coming from a player of the defending team. 

These are taken from either of the corners of the football field, depending on the proximity to where the ball went out. These are usually good goalscoring opportunities for the attacking team and also for the fantasy football game fans of 11wickets Apps. 

Naturally, there are several ways to take a corner to confuse the defending team. Now, let us take a look at the various ways in which a corner kick of fantasy football can be executed. 

Short Corner 

As the name suggests, this is the shortest of the corner kicks. The kick-taker passes the ball to a team-mate who is standing closer than 10 yards. This technique relies on opposition players leaving the box and moving towards the ball, thereby creating space to score. 

Then, either the kick-taker or his team-mate takes back the ball and crosses it into a relatively emptier box or passes it to another player. 

Near-post Corner 

Once again, as the name suggests, the objective of a near-post corner is to cross the ball towards the nearest goalpost. This type of corner usually targets the absence of a defending player at the near post or the lack of a tall player at the same area. 

The ball is crossed close to the head-height or slightly higher. The attacking player can either head the ball, take a shot with his foot or even redirect it towards a team-mate. 

Far-post Corner 

Just like the near-post corner, these are directed towards the far-post. These are the most common type of corner kicks as the attacking team looks to take advantage of the best headers in the team. 

Normally, the attacking player runs from the edge of the box towards a lofted cross to head it in. 

Mid-range Corner 

Between the near-post and far-post, we get the mid-range corner. In this case, the ball is crossed right in front of goal. The exact position can be anywhere from the six-yard box to the edge of the penalty area but it is always in front of goal. 

In all cases, the attacking player runs in to either head the ball in or volley it. 

Direct Corner 

One of the rarest corners to pull off, a direct goal is attempted in this case. This is an inswinging corner as the kick-taker tries to curl the ball into the goal. 

Therefore, it is a difficult one to execute with multiple defenders and goalkeepers guarding the goal. Further, it requires inch-perfect accuracy as well, making it a difficult one to pull off. 

Thus, these are the different types of corner kicks in football based on where the ball is played. 

Inswinging Corner 

In this case, the ball is whipped with an inward spin, i.e. the ball trajectory moves towards goal making it easier for the attacking team to score. 

Outswinging Corner 

The trajectory of an outswinging corner is away from the goal. The spin on the ball is used to target an attacking player’s head to increase the chances of scoring.

Shin Guards

Other Equipment Rules

Players are responsible for wearing equipment that will not endanger themselves or other players. This includes wearing jewelry or sharp spikes on the shoes.

Fun Facts

  1. Adidas has supplied the World Cup ball since 1970. Each ball has a unique design and name. The 2010 World Cup ball was the Jabulani.

Nicknames for the 2019 MLS All-Star opponents include Los Colchoneros (“The Mattress-makers,” an old reference to their red-and-white striped kits) or Los Rojiblancos (The Red and Whites based off of their famous vertical red and white striped look).

Here are some quick facts on the Spanish side. Read about them and play fantasy football league games.

European Heavy Weights

Atléti are no strangers to the biggest stages in Europe. Los Rojiblancos have won the UEFA Europa League in 2009-10, 2011-12 and 2017-18 and finished Runners-up in the UEFA Champions League in 2013-14 and 2015-16. Domestically, Atléti famously claimed the La Liga title in 2013-14 (after an almost 20-year drought) and finished Runners-up in 2017-18.

​2018-19 La Liga Runners-Up

Atlético Madrid currently sit second in La Liga behind Barcelona who have already claimed the La Liga Championship and look like a sure bet to be Runners-Up with three games left to play. They have ensured qualification for the 2019-20 Champions League.

Heavy 2018 FIFA World Cup Presence

Atlético had heavy representation in Russia last summer for the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

The Stars

Atléti is a team full of stars but there are several that shine brighter than the others. You can’t talk Atlético Madrid without mentioning the man in charge, Diego Simeone. Simeone (nicknamed El Cholo) has been at the helm of Atléti since 2011 and is famous for his clean suited look and fiery personality when he patrols the technical box. His passion and love for the club is easily explained by the fact he appeared in over 100 appearances for the club when he was a player and over 400 games in charge as Manager.

Moving onto the pitch, Atléti have one of the world’s best keepers in Jan Oblak. Between La Liga and Champions League play in 2018-19 the Atléti keeper has 24 clean sheets in 43 appearances. Farther up the pitch, Atléti are known for fielding some of the best forwards the world has had to offer over the last decade.
