Everyone has moments that do not want to remember and one of them is a lost penalty. Check out some of the lost penalties in the World Cup history that have not been forgotten with the passage of time.
There are not only heroes that stay etched in the minds of football fans. Even the often fateful stay unforgettable. Those who make a mistake and their team losses a very big target. In this category are those who have failed in a penalty.
As there are the most beautiful goals in the World Cup, thus there are decisive lost penalties, those that have remained in history, those that have “hurt” entire countries.
Roberto Baggio, 1994
He is one of the best players who have ever played in the World Cup, however, he will always be linked to the missing penalty against Brazil in the final of 1994. “Squadra azzurra” would not have probably reached the final without him, however, the Italian took the title of the fateful, in a scene that came to be and advertising. Later he said “I never wanted to avoid my responsibilities.”
Chris Waddle, 1990
England came a breath from the World Cup final in 1990. Their opponent in the semifinals was West Germany, which got drawn by Lineker, having scored first with Brehme. Eventually everything judged in the penalties, the nightmare of the “Three Lions”. Stuart Pearce was the first who missed. Shortly after Chris Waddle had the opportunity to keep England in the game of qualifying, but his penalty kick was disappointing.
Maxime Bossis, 1982
One of the most impressive games in the history of the event is the semi-final of 1982 between West Germany and France. The game went into extra time with the “Tricolore” to take a lead of two goals and the “Panzer” to respond immediately. The two teams went to the penalties where both of them lost one. In sudden death, however, Hrubesch scored, in contrast to Bossis
David Batty, 1998
There could be many other Englishmen in this category, since their relationship to the penalties is known. One of the most memorable games is that of Argentina against England in 1998. Firstly, it was the goal from Owen and then Beckham’s sent-off. Even on penalties the agony was in the vertical. The two groups had lost one and Batty should equalize for continuity. However, the English viewed once again their National be excluded due to lost penalties.
Asamoah Gyan, 2010
Uruguay and Ghana are battling for a ticket to the semifinals. Both know that they are given a great opportunity, because the opponent is not unbeatable. The game is on a tightrope, the teams go to extra time, but then neither of them seems to be able to resolve their differences. Until the last chance of the extra time when Suarez saves a sure goal but he commits penalty. Ghana can produce history after she is given the opportunity to become the first African team to go into the semi-finals of the tournament, though, Gyan misses the penalty kick and his team loses in the penalty kicks although he was impactful.
Obviously, there must be a lot of lost penalties in football history but the most important are shown above.
