GIF: Belgian Footballer Misses Penalty, Scores with Overhead Kick Anyway
Move over, Mario Balotelli. There's a new penalty specialist in world football.
Here's the thing, though. The secret, as crazy as it seems, might actually be to miss the penalty itself.
That's what Belgian midfielder Glenn van der Linden did during a Belgian second division match Saturday between Hoogstraten and Mouscron-Peruwelz. Mouscron-Peruwelz won 2-1, but late in the match van der Linden had a chance to score from the penalty spot.
Van der Linden's initial shot was saved, but it rebounded and came out to the penalty spot, where he popped the ball in the air and scored with a spectacular overhead kick.
Just like he drew it up.
