Is This The Worst Soccer Penalty Kick Ever?
We have a feeling Austrian soccer player Jonathan Soriano would have liked a second attempt at his penalty kick against Real Vienna last Saturday.
Soriano, who plays for Red Bull Salzburg of the Austrian Bundesliga, received a penalty kick at the 79th minute of the game with his team trailing by two goals. As Soriano lined up for the kick, it appears that he wanted to place the ball just above the goalie’s head. Instead of placing the ball above his head, Soriano’s kick went flying over the goal and landed in the stands behind it.
The goal itself could have been ten feet tall and Johnathan wouldn’t have even come close.
