Home / Goals My Granny Could Have Scored / Goals My Granny Could Have Scored: Chipped Penalty Fail


So…we have for you today one of the worst penalties ever taken in a professional match. Blau-Wiess Linz and Wassen were battling promotion to the Austrian second division, which if you ask me is like two large men fighting over a small bit of cake. Anyway, both sides had 1-0 victories at home versus each other, so it came down to penalties.

With Blau 4-3 behind to Wassen, it fell to Armin Hobel to keep Blau in it…instead he did this….

Now who told him he was Eric Cantona….
