Euro 2016 may have been and gone but the window for taking the rise out of Simone Zaza’s truly woeful penalty against Germany in the quarter-finals is far from closed.

Indeed, towering NBA star Dirk Nowitzki – himself of the German persuasion – poked fun at the Italian striker’s dismal spot-kick during Wednesday evening’s ‘Champions for Charity’ exhibition game in Mainz by faithfully recreating it right down to the last painstaking detail…

Nicely done. Good feet for a big man/human electricity pylon (Nowitzki is 7ft tall).

Here’s the Zaza original again – purely for comparison’s sake, you understand…

It just gets better and better sillier and sillier.
