Think about it smart guy. Anyone can score a PK against a professional goalkeeper if they place the ball right. In fact, a good PK taker completely ignores that the goalkeeper is even there. That doesnt mean it is easy though.
The goal keeper was NOT a professional, he was a celebrity too....

Exactly! I say: FAIL!

I don't know why soccer/soccer fans make people who don't like soccer so aggressive and itchy to slam it hard.... They just jonz to put it down, call it girly, not really a sport blah blah blah... To top it off, the genius who posted this garbage also didn't mention that this was a CHARITY event!! If you don't like soccer, don't watch it/don't play it... leave those of us who do alone! I just don't get the trolling/antagonizing regarding soccer... Don't like it, don't watch it... It's simple!

I used to think that soccer was a "real" sport, but if this can happen, lol.

Imagine a celebrity catching a pass and running into the endzone in an NFL game against any kind of defense.

They'd be laughed out of the freaking league!

Woody Harrelson, penalty kick master - Dirty Tackle - World Soccer* - Yahoo! Sports

Well then go back to watching NASCAR...What do you hicks have against soccer, no one's f--king forcing you to watch it or care about it. It's just like when someone in the southern US says they don't get hockey because of the lack of scoring or they can't see the puck. Okay, well just go back to watching pro wrasslin' then and call it a day.

What a dumb thread!

lol - what an idiot.

I give this thread starter credit, however, for the worst ever attempt at being a troll.
