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.

This is why Jorginho should be our penalty taker. In his run up there is a period where he literally doesn't have either foot on the ground and it never fails to shake a keeper. pic.twitter.com/FrysStKuLM- Sarri's Smokebox (@Sarrisimo2) January 25, 2019
The keepers reaction whenever Jorginho takes his penalty tells u a lot about his penalty technique, arguably one of the best penalty takers atm- Daniel Grey :raised_hand: (@gangantedaniel) January 25, 2019

He couldn't help but laugh with his teammates when he trotted back to the halfway line.

The penalties aren't hit with any venom but it's so tricky for the goalkeeper because Jorginho's movement throws them off and forces them to commit themselves.
Huddersfield's Ben Hamer was his first victim in August on Jorginho's Premier League debut and Gazzaniga was the latest 'keeper to have the piss taken out of him from 12 yards last night.
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.
