With Grasshopper Zurich 1-0 up, St. Gallen were presented with a fine opportunity to level things in their Swiss Super League clash when they were awarded a penalty with 15 or so minutes of the second half remaining.
Now, a penalty kick is, in its essence, a very simple mechanic and, employed correctly, should provide a relatively foolproof method of scoring a goal.
Sadly, St. Gallen pair Oscar Scarrione and Pa Madou had been working on a little something all week…
The game finished 1-0. Grasshopper replaced St. Gallen at the top of the league. Well done chaps.
