Argentine Footballer Has Horrific Penalty Saved After The Longest Run-Up Ever

An Argentine footballer has gone viral for producing one of the longest penalty run-ups ever - only to have his effort saved.

The incident took place during Atletico Atlanta's Copa Argentina first-round clash with Villa San Carlos, which went to a penalty shootout.

Both sides played to a 0-0 draw and were 3-3 in the shootout, with every penalty being scored to that point.

Step up Gonzalo Coronel. The youngster was making his debut for the club and spent five seconds making his run-up.


What followed was a long stride, baby steps and even a Bruno Fernandes-esque hop, in an attempt to fool Rodrigo Benitez.

He wasn't fooled and barely had to dive to make a save.

San Carlos would go on to win the shootout 4-3 and huge amounts of criticism came Coronel's way.

Fans have reacted to the gaffe and they think it could already be one of the worst penalties of the season.

Some players are able to make a ridiculous run-up work, with Komi Ryota proving it in the All-Japan High School Championship.

Ryota took the meaning of baby steps to a new level and took 10 seconds to complete his run-up.

He did manage to bury his penalty in the top left hand corner, but the goalkeeper managed to dive the right way. Imagine if he'd saved it.

What do you think is the worst penalty of all time?

Let us know in the comments.
