Irish Sunday league panenka fail

by Charles Pulling

The panenka, a glorious slice of audacity and skill, a move which Pelè claimed would only be attempted by “either a genius or a madman”. When it goes right can elevate the a successfully converted penalty into folklore – just ask Zidane, Pirlo or Antonín Panenka, the man after aforementioned ‘trick-shot’ is named.

Alas, when it goes wrong the player responsible can expect a torrent of ridicule of biblical proportions. Just ask Lineker, Alessandro Pato

So, with much glee and just a wee tad of sympathy, allow us to present this panenka ‘effort’ from Mark O’Brien, a player with Dublin-based amateurs Swords Celtic.

Oh.Dear.
