Despite the unfortunate outcome for us “football lottery” —
penalty shootout in the quarterfinals of the 2018 world Cup against Croatia,
the performance of the Russian team is recognized as excellent. For the first time in many years
football experts admitted that the national team of Russia quite on forces
to compete for prizes in the main world and European Championships.
Sadly missed by Fyodor Smolov and Mario
Fernandez penalty has not allowed us to continue to enjoy a great game of national
the Russian national team. However, few know that spot kicks strikes in different years is not implemented as the main stars of our time — Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Neymar — and the many legendary players of yesteryear.
Today we will tell to readers 7days.ru five great players of the past,
which at the decisive moment are unable to maintain calm and composure
and made fatal mistakes in the most important series of penalty kicks at the world Championships and Europe.
Portugal-England 1/4 final EURO 2004
Quarter final England-Portugal was the most notable match of the European championship of 2004. In the composition of the Portuguese was already shining future five-time winner of the Golden ball, 19-year-old Cristiano Ronaldo and a recognized leader of the British was the famous midfielder David Beckham. After 120 minutes of play, the winner could not be detected (2:2), began a series of penalty kicks. The first the English beat Beckham.
However, the wizard of the standards made the most horrific mistake, but the ball went well over the crossbar. In the end, the founders of football lost, and their coach Sven-göran Eriksson after another defeat of the English at major tournaments on penalties (EURO 1996 to Germany in 1/2 final and the world Cup 1998 — Argentina in the 1/4 finals), said the catch phrase: “it’s time to open a school penalty”.
By the way, to remove more than 20-year-old “curse” of penalty the British managed only held in Russia for the 2018 world Cup in the 1/8 final England, in a series of 11-meter shots beat Colombia.
Italy-France final of the 2006 world Cup
The final match of world Cup 2006 Italy-France memorable
not only the famous “last header” Frenchman Zinedine Zidane in
the chest of Italian Marco Materazzi, but also a dramatic denouement. Because neither the basic nor additional
time did not reveal the winner (1:1), was assigned a series of penalty kicks,
which was the second in the entire history of the world Cup (after the world Cup-1994).
France lost. Experts believe that a key role in the outcome of the game for the world Cup was played by the deletion of Zidane, the leader of the French and their best penalty taker. However, the only one who did not score in that memorable series, was striker France David Trezeguet after his cannon shot from 11 metres, the ball almost tore off the crossbar.
Years later, the French striker admitted that the sound of the crossbar after a shot that made the Italians a four-time world Champions, several months had haunted him in the night
Brazil-Italy final world Cup 1994
Golden match of world Cup 1994 in the United States between Brazil and Italy is one of the most melotronic finals in
the history of the world Championships. During the game, failed to score any Brazilian superduet Romario Bebeto or Italian attackers. First time in the history of the world Cup final ended scoreless after 120 minutes the difficult under the scorching
Pasadena sun (the game started at 12:30 local time, the thermometer showed 40 degrees), the team proceeded
to determine the winner on penalties.
It is in the interchange and there was a dramatic moment that became the main episode in which I remember now an American world Cup. Decisive penalty was played by the leader of the Italian national team, Roberto Baggio. Striker went to the penalty spot, ran up and… punched above gate. Fatal error Baggio, who made the Brazilians four-time world champion was called the “blunder of the century”.
Since then the great Italian striker,
despite all his football trophies and success, most remember only that the penalty kick that became the most terrible mistake in his football career.
