Vancouver’s Ali Adnan Takes One Of The Worst Ever Panenka Penalties
Ali Adnan produced one of the worst ever panenka penalties in the MLS on Friday.
The wing-back had the perfect chance to give Vancouver Whitecaps an early lead against LA Galaxy after his side were awarded a penalty in the very first minute.
But he fluffed his lines from the spot after attempting a cheeky panenka penalty.
His tame effort was eventually saved by Galaxy's keeper.

Here's Zlatan Ibrahimovic converting a superb panenka penalty in Galaxy's 2-1 victory over Portland Timbers earlier in the week.
Galaxy then poked fun of Adnan's woeful penalty by posting a savage message on Twitter.
His mistake proved very, very costly as LA Galaxy secured all three points with Daniel Steres and Ibrahimovic both scoring in the second-half.
Needless to say, Adnan's spot-kick sent social media into overdrive. Here's some reaction from Twitter:
Oh boy.....#VWFC had a penalty within the opening 2 minutes, and newcomer Ali Adnan tried a Panenka.....but failed miserably and it was saved. Making himself look foolish.#VANvLA #MLS #Fail pic.twitter.com/OPM193bSwF- Joga Bonito (@Jasoninho10) April 6, 2019
