Watch: Ridiculous Penalty Technique Looks Like A FIFA Glitch

Penalty techniques have certainly been getting more and more complicated over the past decade, but this might be one of the most convoluted yet.

From Bruno Fernandes' skip to Simone Zaza's Euros flop, there have definitely been different levels of success gained from changing technique from the classic run up and smash it.

Playing in the All-Japan High School Championship, Komi Ryota found a new level of penalty, one that literally looks like there has been a glitch in reality.

Perhaps taking inspiration from Zaza's infamous miss from the spot at Euro 2016, Ryota ran practically on the spot in his run-up for surely far longer than was necessary.


Luckily for the teenager he managed to score, with the shame of missing after such an effort possibly impossible to live down.

You can see the likeness with Zaza's effort...


There has been some controversy over penalties in the Premier League this season, with fans questioning why both Manchester United and Leicester City seem to be given so many more than other teams.

It is unclear why both teams seem to be receiving more penalties, but the introduction of VAR could have something to do with it.


The video review system has courted controversy ever sicne it has started being used, with the focus this season being on why so many handballs and slight touches have been given as fouls in the penalty area.
