Czech amateur match has 52 penalties in shootout but it's not a record

Those people who turned up to watch SK Batov take on FC Frystak in the fifth tier of the Czech football system on Saturday afternoon certainly got their money's worth.

After finishing 3-3 after extra time, the match went to a penalty shootout and it was at that point that the fun and frolics really began.

In fact, it took a massive 52 spot-kicks for the match to finally be decided, which is technically a new world record. Batov eventually ran out 21-20 winners.

According to Czech newspaper DNES, supporters could be heard gasping "At last!" when Frystak midfielder Jan Hrebacka sent his effort over the crossbar to finally hand Batov the victory after the 26th round of penalties.

Sadly, the Batov-Frystak marathon isn't eligible for entry into the Guinness Book of World Records as the game wasn't played at a professional level.

As such, the current record is still the 48 penalties it took for KK Palace to see off Civics in the final of the 2005 Namibian Cup.

Chris covers the funny side of the game for ESPN FC in the Toe Poke blog.
