Poor goalkeeper left stunned as incredible trick shot penalty sweeps the internet
There have been some amazing innovative spot-kicks taken over the years with Rabonas, Panenkas, switch-hits and even back-flip penalties being attempted with varying levels of success.
However, we at Toe Poke have never seen anything quite like this before.
Ce penalty est tout simplement phénoménal. pic.twitter.com/BDrr8r6hYl— Instant Foot ⚽️ (@lnstantFoot) March 20, 2018
Pulled off during an unidentified kick-about, the skilful penalty taker first sends the goalkeeper the wrong way with an audacious fake swing before back-heeling his effort into the net.
It'd be a shame to disallow it for the obvious encroachment, but rules are rules.
