This is the American style soccer shootout employed by the NASL.  Each player is given five seconds to get the ball in the back of the net.  The goalies are free to roam as they choose, as are the players.  The goalie can charge, so less goals are scored.  Yet, even with the fewer goals, it’s hard to argue with the excitement of an American shootout.

It starts at about 2:15 in the video above.
