Montenegro met Switzerland in Euro 2012 qualifying on Friday with Roma striker Mirko Vucinic scoring the only goal of the game, a dinked 68' finish.
The goal propelled both Montenegro to the top of Group G and Vucinic's shorts off of his legs, after dodgy celebration which had the striker runnning around in his skid-marked pants.
Coincidentally, West Brom and New Zealand striker Chris Wood decided to drop his strides in a game against Honduras 12 hours later, on the other side of the world.
Is this "the new thing?"
