    any kick dead center almost never works. kick it to a corner and it would have worked.

    Re: Soccer fans... this is a ultimate fail

    Funny video.

    Also, I think that whole paradinho,or whatever they call it, should be outlawed and outlawed before the World Cup. It takes something that is already damn near impossible (stopping a PK) and does make it impossible (in real soccer, on a large net). It's a joke.

    It is to the referees opinion whether it is illegal or not according to the 2009 laws of the game. Look at page 41 through 43.

    LAW 14- THE PENALTY KICK
    Procedure
    Feinting to take a penalty kick to confuse opponents is permitted as part of football. However, if, in the opinion of the referee, the feinting is considered an act of unsporting behavior, the player must be cautioned.

    "Advice to Referees on the Laws of the Game," Advice 14.9:

    Infringements after the referee’s signal but before the ball is in play may be committed by the kicker, the goalkeeper, or by any of their teammates. Violations of Law 14 by the kicker in particular include back heeling the ball (14.12), running past the ball and then backing up to take the kick, excessively changing directions in the run to the ball or taking an excessively long run to the ball (which, in the opinion of the referee, results in an unnecessary delay in taking the kick), or making any motion of the hand or arm which (in the opinion of the referee) is clearly intended to confuse or misdirect the attention of the ‘keeper. In almost all such cases, the referee should let the kick proceed and deal with the violation in accordance with the chart below, which outlines the proper restarts for clear infringements of Law 14. However, in the case of a kicker creating an unnecessary delay in taking the kick, the referee should intervene, if possible, warn the kicker to proceed properly, and signal again for the restart.

    *Edit: That seams like unnecessary delay and you could argue he ran past the ball and backed up and made excessive change in direction in the run to the ball. If i were ref, I would caution the kick-taker and have him retake the kick.

    Re: Soccer fans... this is a ultimate fail

    I guess I never saw what was so difficult about trying to catch a goalie guessing and using your plant foot as a clue by planting the left foot pointing towards the left and kicking the ball to the lower right corner. I didn't play soccer in high school (injuries prevented that), but I could fool even our best soccer players by doing that.
