Simple question. Why? This guy basically deserves to be sent to a crab infested island for a period of five years or until he realises he is a complete fool, whatever happens first. This little bit of idiocy took place in an indoor match between Brazilian rivals Flamengo and Sao Paulo and with any luck the penalty taker will never be allowed to forget this unforgivable act for as long as he lives.
Thanks to the excellent Dirty Tackle for bringing this to our attention.
