Football Lessons

Hey Jenas, here’s how you take a penalty!

The best spot kick showboating ever seen

Knocking a dead ball into the goal from twelve yards should be the easiest thing in the world for a professional footballer, but as Jenas, Chimbonda, Yakubu and Jagielka learned last night, it’s tough under pressure. Maybe they should have tried to emulate one of these classic efforts:

Johan Cruijff gets some help

Francesco Totti backheels it

Gonzalo Pineda pulls off a cheeky chip

(more after the jump)

Pineda probably learnt his skills from Czech hero Antonin Panenka

And how not to do it

Bobby Pires forgets to kick it at the goal

Spoiler bonus: Here’s the top ten penalty misses as suggested by Who Ate All The Pies.
