(Video) Bluff Penalty Routine Shamefully Backfires

To stupidest penalty miss since Henry and Pires.

You should all remember the Pires/Henry penalty frag, which proved that it doesn’t always pay to try to be too clever.

Clearly that lesson was not heeded in Switzerland, where St Gallen were guilty of a dismal penalty routine in their league match against Grasshopper.

It looks as though their regular penalty taker Scarione (number 10) is about to take it but then Pa Modou (number 9) unexpectedly steps up and shoots instead.

St Gallen were 1-0 down at the time too. We bet the manager wasn’t happy.

Even if it had gone in it would not have counted as the penalty taker has to be clearly identified to the ‘keeper and referee.
