Charlton Striker Lyle Taylor Has Got The Most Relaxed Approach To Penalties In Football

Charlton Striker Lyle Taylor Has Got The Most Relaxed Approach To Penalties In Football

Charlton Athletic striker Lyle Taylor has taken the saying cool, calm and collected to new levels this weekend.

The 29-year-old played a huge part in Saturday afternoon's game against Barnsley when Lee Bowyer's side were handed a last minute penalty after a close encounter at Oakwell

Barnsley were 2-1 up thanks to goals from Cauley Woodrow and Conor Chaplin but a foul from defender Bambo Diaby on highly rated midfielder Conor Gallagher handed The Addicks a lifeline in the 90th minute.

Many would crumble under the pressure but Taylor stepped up confidently to salvage a point from the spot. And when I say confidently, I mean the most relaxed penalty run-up ever.

He casually walked to the 12 yards line before sending goalkeeper Sahin-Radlinger the wrong way.

This might just be one of my favourite penalties of all time.

Charlton manager Lee Bowyer admitted that he "didn't fancy" Lyle Taylor to score.

"To be fair, I didn't fancy Lyle to score! When he's walking up to take the penalty I didn't fancy him to score, but obviously he does." he said after the game.

"He's so calm in that situation and he's the person you'd want to be taking the penalty so, thankfully, it went in."

This isn't the first time Charlton's 2018/19 player of the season has pulled off this casual penalty technique. He did this to help his side reach the play-off final.

Is this the coolest penalty you've ever seen?
