WATCH: This Is How The MLS Took Penalties In The 90's

Here's a throwback to how our buddies across the pond used to take penalties. What is going on?!

The American's were not quite convinced about the conventional spot-kicks, so they proceeded to mix it up by introducing the shoot-out in an attempt to "Americanise" soccer.

The taker would run with the ball from the 35-yard line similar to a Hockey penalty creating a 1-on-1 contest between the shooter and keeper.
