Neymar Misses Penalty Kick, Pretty Sure I Could Have Nailed This One
Well, this is embarrassing...
Brazilian's star player Neymar was lining up for a penalty shot in a friendly against Columbia played at MetLife Stadium in New York when this happened. The goal could have given Brazil a one goal edge with 10 minutes remaining in the match, but instead, Neymar did his best Adam Vinatieri impression, blasting the ball at least 50 rows up.
I didn't think it was even possible for the ball to rise as fast as it did, but there's the proof. Neymar did have a defense prepared for this miserable shot, though.
"The penalty was horrible but you probably noticed the state the pitch was in, it didn't have any stability," he said. ”I tried to take it slowly but it didn't work out, these things happen."
