If this was to right a perceived wrong, then why not

ABBAAB?

Instead of letting one team take 4 shots, as opposed to the team supposedly going first, taking 2?

What are you talking about?
ABBA ABBA that is 4 shots each for the 2 teams....

Totally forgot Morata existed. I stopped breathing at Courtois' PK skill.

ABBA makes no difference, the onus of scoring and winning a pk shootout is on the players and goalies saving them.

I have figured out technique of saving a penalty.
When a player leans back to strike the ball, that means ball is going his right if a right footed taker, likewise a left footer.
But when the player's head is down and forward the ball is going to his left (across the body) likewise a left footer.
All this is a split second decision for the goalie to figure out, and decide where to dive to.
Just my take. Unfortunately I don't play anymore, I for practice am myself :biggrin:

:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: Shaking my head (smh)! Anyway, thx Oga Mcal, I will watch closely next time a penalty is played, perhaps you are correct

And when they discover that ABBA favors or is not a level playing ground what will they do again? Stupidity is on the rise in the world as idiots keep trying to ubravel nature and fate. There is a reason why they toss the coin and ask if the winner of the toss want to kick or defend first!


Its not stupidity, there's a reason why they changed it.

Stupidity is not the reason behind this change.

And what's all this talk about nature and fate? Dude, it's only penalty shoot outs, lighten up.

How about the team with more possession gets an extra penalty kick.

More possession means in the opponents half.
