Dirk Nowitzki flops in charity soccer match

By ESPNDallas.com

Dirk Nowitzki, who has been vocal about how the NBA's enforcement of flopping, showed off his skills -- or lack thereof -- on the subject during a charity soccer match on Sunday in Würzburg, Germany.

Nowitzki faked a fall during the match and was awarded a penalty kick during the match against an all-star team captained by FC Bayern Munich's Manuel Neuer.

“As a professional sportsman, you are in a fortunate position of earning a lot of money and being a role model,” Nowitzki told the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung of the charity match.

Alas, Dirk's all-stars lost the match, 8-7.
