Swansea City's Bersant Celina Takes Penalty Branded 'The Worst Of All Time'
From Neymar finding Row Z when he failed to convert against David Ospina in 2012, to John Terry's infamous slip in the Champions League final, we have witnessed some truly dreadful penalty kicks down the years.
But on March 13th 2019, the worst spot-kick in the history of football may have taken place at The Hawthorns.
Swansea City midfielder Bersant Celina stepped up to try and equalise against fourth place West Brom and well, it didn't go to plan. Are you ready for this?
Celina, who has scored seven goals in 36 appearances this season looked confident as he edged towards the ball.

But the former Manchester City youth product slipped, only managing to hit the ball a couple of yards before a West Brom player cleared it away.
The Baggies went on to score another just minutes later, thanks to on loan Everton defender Mason Holgate and Swansea struggled to get back in the game.

What the heck happened with Celina's penalty? The match is skipping and stopping a lot on the :red_circle: so I couldn't see properly #Swans- Benjamin Newbery (@BenjaminN1982) March 13, 2019
Lionel Messi and Bersant Celina have both attempted panenka penalties this evening with very contrasting levels of execution. Both equally spectacular though- Mark Pitman (@markpitman1) March 13, 2019
Is this the worst penalty kick of all time or have you got another contender?
