Pathetic PKs: Pato's Panenka and Ill-Fated Trick Play
[VIDEO PICK: Off the Post] From the Austrian lower divisions to the top tier of Brazilian ball, here are two ways not to take a penalty kick ...
Stadl-Paura led 5-1 SK Altheim when it was awarded a penalty kick. The TV commentator accused the players who conjured the trick play of "watching too much YouTube." Well, now they're on YouTube.
Former AC Milan star Alexandre Pato attempted a
Panenka that failed miserably and handed a shootout win to Gremio over Corinthians to advance to the semifinals of the Copa do Brasil. Dida, as you'll see, wasn't fooled for a second.
And since we're speaking of Panenkas, here's how the PK method got its
name, when Antonin Panenka chipped down the middle while West German keeper Sepp Maier flew into the corner to hand the Czechs the 1976 European Championship title.
