Never Forget Ederson's Penalty Masterclass, He Seriously Needs To Take A Spot-Kick For Man City

​It's fair to say Ederson put on an incredible show when he practiced penalties ahead of last season's Champions League final. 


The Manchester City goalkeeper produced a penalty masterclass as he nonchalantly blasted the ball into the back of the net on numerous occasions. 

He fired a couple of spot-kicks with his left peg and even performed a few outrageous attempts, casually rolling the ball past the keeper in net. 

Of course, it's not a pressurised moment - but, still, it's a fry cry from Kepa Arrizabalaga​'s woeful attempt in the Carabao Cup final last weekend.

Fans online loved Ederson's penalty technique. 

One tweeted: "Unstoppable even if he went to the opposing goalkeeper and pointed to the EXACT spot he was going to kick it!!"​

A second wrote: "I mean no one is getting near it ever.. the nonchalance.. if you can do it under pressure you’re laughing."​

A third added: "The way he kicks the ball you’d think he’s choosing right. Absolute banger."​

​Pep Guardiola has previously talked up Ederson's ability from the spot and claimed he could be in line to take a penalty amid the club's penalty-taking slump last season.

"He is an option because I am pretty sure he's a good taker," he said during a period where three different Man City players had missed a penalty.

"A penalty taker has to be the personality with huge confidence in himself​."

Unfortunately for those who want to see the brilliant Brazilian to take a penalty, he has yet to step up from 12-yards. 

But should his side be involved in a penalty shootout, then the 28-year-old could be a genuine candidate to take a spot-kick.
