    Inspiring reaction from his teammates after the PK miss. Given the great challenge to score goals in this 11 v 11 sport, we should never underestimate the value, the absolute necessity, for team cohesion and esprit de corps in the pursuit of success. This moment provides real insight into the soul of Barca. Well done posting it.
