How not to take a penalty ? [Video]

A penalty kick (commonly known as a penalty or a PK) is a method of restarting play in association football, in which a player is allowed to take a single shot on the goal while it is defended only by the opposing team’s goalkeeper.

It is awarded when a foul punishable by a direct free kick is committed by a player in their own penalty area.

The shot is taken from the penalty mark, which is 12 yards (11 m) from the goal line and centred between the touch lines.
