    Worst. Penalties. Ever.

    I have just watched Japan v USA in the Women's WC final, and then Brazil-Paraguay in the Copa America QF.

    15 penalties, 6 goals, 5 missing the target entirely.

    Two questions spring to mind:
    (i) Has there ever been an evening of worse penalty taking?
    (ii) Why does this never happen to the team playing England?

    Only matched by the awful commentary from Guy Mowbray to be honest (and the shocking USA defending)
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    Barca - Steaua 0-2 in eight penalties. (1986 European Cup final)

    Though at least Barca managed to hit the Steaua keeper.
    Messi scores on the rebound.
