Venezuelan Footballer Gets Sacked By Club For Missing Panenka Penalty

Venezuelan Footballer Gets Sacked By Club For Missing Panenka Penalty

There are a number of reasons as to why a club might take steps to terminate a player's contract - failing to prove fitness or disciplinary reasons being the most common.

Add 'producing a terrible panenka penalty' to the list, which has sparked the end of Brendix Parra's spell at Independiente de Campo Grande.

"If we had qualified to the next round each player would have earned a bit of money."

We've never come across anything like this in our life but somehow Parra is taking it well and not kicking up a fiss.

"It's a difficult situation, but life goes on," Parra said.

Fortunately for Adnan, however, his job is safe and sound - though he might not be on penalty-taking duties for a while.
