(Video) Liverpool brute finally punished but Arsenal’s penalty woes continue at Euro 2016 as Mesut Ozil fails from 12 yards

Liverpool defender Martin Skrtel always seems to be on the verge of giving away a penalty.

Skrtel was incredibly fortunate not to concede a spot kick in Slovakia’s 2-1 defeat to Wales on the first Saturday of Euro 2016, but the 31-year-old’s luck finally ran out in Lille this afternoon.

Already 1-0 down to a Jerome Boateng stunner, Slovakia looked in big trouble when Skrtel pushed Mario Gomez to the ground inside the opening 15 minutes against Germany.

Skrtel was shown a yellow card, which will see if miss the quarter-final (yeah, right), but Slovakia were spared from going 2-0 down as Matus Kozacik made an excellent save to deny Mesut Ozil from 12 yards.

Ozil became the second Arsenal player to miss a penalty in just over 24 hours, after new Gunners signing Granit Xhaka blazed over in Switzerland 5-4 shootout defeat to Poland in Saint-Etienne yesterday.
