Venezuela’s attempts terrible Panenka at even worse time
June 19, 2016
You’re down 2–0 to mighty Argentina in the Copa America quarterfinals. You’ve been awarded a penalty and now you have a golden opportunity to cut your opponents’ lead in half and turn the momentum. If you’re Venezuela’s Luis Seijas, a man who is completely insane, this is a perfect opportunity to show off your nonexistent Panenka skills.
Naturally, Argentina keeper Sergio Romero caught this abysmal attempt with the minimum effort possible and now Seijas is an international laughingstock.
It takes big brass balls to attempt a move like this at a time like this. Unfortunately, Seijas made it look like he was kicking a big brass ball, too.
