The Worst Penalty



Text  



Of all the tricks players try when taking a penalty to fake the goalkeeper, Egyptian soccer side Al Ahly’s Amir Sayoud’s attempt has to be up there with the worst ever. In his run-up to kick the ball, he pauses, but then becomes a victim of his own trickery by tripping over himself and only slightly striking the ball, so that the goalkeeper has to just pick it up. For his trickery, he was even booked by the official and consoled by an opposition player.
