Dario Benedetto's Rugby-Like Penalty Is Being Called The Worst Ever In A Shootout

Fans are calling Dario Benedetto's penalty the worst ever in a shootout and you can see why. He won't want to see this again. ​​

The Boca Juniors striker had the chance to send his team through to the next round of the ​CONMEBOL Libertadores.​

But he completely fluffed his lines from the spot, spectacularly blazing the ball over the bar.

He stepped up and smashed his spot-kick into the stands, with Corinthians ​eventually securing a 6-5 penalty shootout victory.

Benedetto's penalty was nowhere near the net, with some fans believing it's the worst spot-kick they've ever seen in a shootout. ​

​One tweeted: "Actually impressive just how awful that pen is… can’t remember the last time I saw the ball go that high from a pen."​

A second wrote: "One of the worst penalties I’ve ever seen."​

A third added: "How do you even do that?"

​Another joked: "it’s so bad that it’s actually fascinating. I'm impressed at how bad it is."​

To make matters worse, Benedetto also hit the post from a penalty during the game and missed a sitter before the shootout. 

To further rub salt in the wound, Corinthians ruthlessly trolled the striker on social media after the match.

They posted an image of a mock membership card from their fan club with his photo and name printed on it.

The 32-year-old ​had a game he'll want to forget about very quickly.
