A tremendous penalty-kick miss
August 14th, 2012 12:34AM

TAGS:  off the post, video


[VIDEO PICK] It's one thing to miss from the penalty spot. It's another to miss the target by as much Red Bull Salzburg's Jonathan Soriano did during a 2-0 loss last weekend to Rapid Vienna.

Soriano, a 26-year-old Spaniard, has scored five goals in 12 Austrian league games since joining Salzburg last January, but managed one of the worst PKs on record with 10 minutes left against Rapid Vienna last Sunday.

    Don't speak the language, but the comparison to any extra point try in the American Football League comes through plain as day from the announcers

    It's up and it's good. Great field goal kick! He should get 3 pts. for that. LOL
