Fans point way to net for goal-shy Magdeburg

Cheeky fans of German minnows FC Magdeburg decided to help their team end a five-match goalless streak with huge flourescent arrows to show their players the way to the goal.

With their team bottom of the northern regional league, Germany's fourth division, a group of fans under the banner "We'll Show You Where The Goal Is!" gathered behind their opponents' net, each armed with a giant arrow.

The trick worked as Magdeburg finally found the back of the net after 558 minutes without a goal when US striker Chris Wright equalised in the 78th minute of their 2-1 defeat at home to Berliner AK 07 last Sunday.

Footage of the humourous prank has already proved a hit on the internet with more than a quarter of a million people watching the video "Pfeile (Arrows)" on YouTube.
