Never saw this coming...

Why don’t more players try this?

Those of you who missed the highly anticipated friendly between the world footballing behemoths of Gabon and Zambia, missed a really special spot kick.

Yeah, we know, “Did you see that penalty in that friendly the other day?” doesn’t sound like a real conversation starter, but this penalty was just different enough to warrant our attention.

Late in the game in which his side were trailing 0-1, Gabon goalkeeper Moto Bitsek duped his opposite number with a commendable effort that had us asking, “why on Earth don’t more players try this?”

(The penalty is at the 1:20 mark)
