Matt Le Tissier Points Out The Simple Flaw In Alvaro Morata’s Penalty Technique

Matt Le Tissier has explained where Alvaro Morata fell short with his critical penalty miss on Tuesday night.

The Spain and Juventus striker saw his penalty saved by Gianluigi Donnarumma during the semi-final shootout between Italy and Spain.

It proved the crucial miss as Jorginho calmly slotted his winning spot-kick to send Italy into the final of Euro 2020.

Le Tissier took to Twitter to share the simple error in Morata's penalty technique.

The Southampton legend took a photo of his TV at home showing the Juventus man shaping up to take his shot.

As he steps up to kick the ball, Morata has his head down and therefore does not witness Donnarumma committing to diving to his left.

Morata went the same way and watched Donnarumma comfortably save his effort.

Le Tissier, who is fairly experienced when it comes to taking penalties (scoring 47 of 48 during his career), said: "If Morata gets his head up a little before striking the ball he'd have been able to see the keeper was only going one way".

Ian Wright also agreed the striker's body language on approaching the spot-kick was not good enough.

The Arsenal legend added: "When he walked up to it he was looking down".
