I'd like to try to recreate this photo. Does anyone know how it was done and what equipment was probably used?

Thanks in advance.

Start with a 14-man soccer team. Procure 5 soccer balls. Head to the location , which is as Chris Farley used to scream,"Down by the river!" as darkness falls. Set up a couple ladders, camera left, and have flash units aimed from the left, angling to the right. Have assistant(s) on ladders aim flash units at soccer players. Use an ultra-wide-angle lens and tripod. Shoot longish exposures to get the sky tones right. Pop flash or flashes, as 14-man soccer team with 5 soccer balls stares blankly ahead.

There were a couple of flash locations because shadows are not all in the same direction.

Trade player 15 for another soccer ball. This can obviously only work with 14 players.
