Top 10 penalties that never landed


1. Sergio Ramos, Champions League 2012

The Real right-back shanks his penalty high, wide and not very handsome against Bayern. Oops.

Made even funnier by Jose Mourinho's reaction.

2. Roberto Baggio, World Cup 1994

The most famous penalty miss of all time? Possible. The Devine Ponytail hands Brazil the 1994 World Cup with this miss, then hangs his head in shame.

3. Jaap Stam, Euro 2000

In Holland, a skied penalty is now referred to as a 'Jaap Stam' after this howler against Italy in Euro 2000.

4. David Beckham, Euro 2004

Wasn't long before and England player featured on this list, obviously. First one is D-Becks for this slicer against Portugal. 

5. Charlie Adam, Carling Cup 2012

Ah Charlie, lighting up the Carling Cup final with this shoot-out miss in 2012 against Cardiff. The Reds still went on to win.

6. Chris Waddle, World Cup 1990

Yep, had to be didn't it? De-mulleted Waddle loses all his power and shanks his penalty over the bar in the famous World Cup semi-final defeat to Germany.

7. Wayne Rooney, Premier League 2011

ANOTHER England player. Althoug this time not in the white of the Three Lions, Rooney choses a weird run-up then weirder finish against Arsenal last season.

8. David Beckham, World Cup qualifier 2001

And more England! Beckahm returns with this slip-and-shank against Turkey in a World Cup qualifer. Oops.

9. Franco Baresi, World Cup 1994

Forget Baggio, this effort is ever worst from Baresi in the same game! Yikes!

10. Lukas Jutkiewicz, The Championship 2011

The Coventry forward skied this effort over against Nottingham Forest in the last minute of the game. It would have won three points for City. Big oops.
