Fans consider Dario Benedetto’s penalty the worst ever in a penalty shootout and you can see why. He won’t want to see this again.
The Boca Juniors striker had the opportunity to send his team to the next round of the CONMEBOL Libertadores.
But he completely disturbed his lines from the spot, stunningly shooting the ball over the bar.
He went up and hit the spot kick in the stands, Corinthians eventually winning on penalties 6-5.
Benedetto’s penalty was nowhere near the net, with some fans believing it was the worst penalty they had ever seen in a penalty shootout.
One tweeted: “It’s actually impressive how awful this pen is…I don’t remember the last time I saw a ball rise from a pen.”
The second wrote: “One of the worst punishments I’ve ever seen.”
A third added: “How do you even do that?”
Another joked, “It’s so bad that it’s really cool. I’m touched by how bad it is.”
To make matters worse, Benedetto also hit the post with a penalty kick during the match and missed an attendee before the penalty shootout.
To further rub salt into the wound, Corinthians ruthlessly assaulted the striker on social media after the match.
They posted a picture of a fake fan club membership card with his picture and name printed on it.
The 32-year-old played a game that he will want to forget very quickly.
