Jorginho Scored The Sauciest Penalty In Carabao Cup Semi Final Shoot-Out Win Over Spurs

Jorginho Scored The Sauciest Penalty In Carabao Cup Semi Final Shoot-Out Win Over Spurs

Jorginho's penalties really are a thing of beauty and he produce another moment of pure sauce from the spot last night.

After a 2-2 draw on aggregate in the Carabao Cup semi final, it went straight to penalties at Stamford Bridge and Chelsea were 4-2 victors after Eric Dier and Lucas Moura both missed for Spurs.

David Luiz smashed home the winning penalty but it was Jorginho's filthy spot-kick that everyone was talking about. He made Paulo Gazzaniga look like a completely mug with his unorthodox 'hop' technique, nonchalantly rolling the ball into the opposite corner like it was the easiest thing in the world.

The 26-year old has been using the technique for years now, first developing it whilst messing about.

"It's about three years ago in training, we were mucking around with other players taking penalties and I thought to myself, 'I'm going to do it like this'," the 26-year old told SPORTbible in October.

"I got confidence taking penalties and it all started from there."

Jorginho has one of the most aesthetically pleasing penalty techniques in world football, though Atlanta United's Josef Martinez and Athletic Bilbao's Aritz Aduriz also possess sauce for days.
