Who holds their nerve from 12-yards out?
Taking a penalty. It looks so easy. Professionals should never miss a free shot from 12-yards. Well they aren’t as easy as they look and professionals certainly miss them.
The coolness needed to step up and take a penalty is beyond belief. The pressure is all on the taker and all eyes are watching that one person.
SillySeason wanted to create a list of the best penalty takers in football, and here are the 10 players we picked to make our list.
Some you will agree with, and some I’m sure you will disagree with, but lets take a look at who makes our list!
10. Andrea Pirlo
Starting the list of Top 10 Penalty Takers In The World Of All Time is footballing legend Andrea Pirlo.
Pirlo is just loved all across the globe. His look, his style and the way he controls a football field is just incredible for his age. Now set to leave Juventus in order to take on the MLS (so it seems), Pirlo will be sorely missed in European football, but he will always be remembered for his coolness on the field.
Who remembers his little panenka in the Euros against England during a penalty shoot-out? The nerve!
