I don’t know about you, but I’m starting to get a bit bored with all these ‘Panenka’ spot-kicks. Like tattoos and racism, it’s a trend football should knock on the head.
Anyway, the latest cheeky chappie to outwit a goalie from the penalty spot is Sochaux’s Ryad Boudebouz. However, his take on the ‘Panenka’ is interesting for the way he barely caresses the ball past the ‘keeper. Indeed, the ball even bounces before it eventually goes over the line, but the goalie is still made to look like an incompetent eejit.
