Ludogorets captain Svetoslav Dyakov had the chance to score from the penalty spot during his side's Europa League clash with Lazio in Italy on Thursday.

Rather than blast the ball, however, he tried a Panenka-style chip down the middle of the goal.

Great if it works and horrible if it doesn't:

As you can see, Lazio goalkeeper Etrit Berisha was suitably unimpressed, wagging the finger at Dyakov after saving the kick.

It got worse for Dyakov, who was sent off early in the second half after picking up a second yellow card.

However, his side did manage to pull off a 1-0 victory to give themselves an advantage in the tie, which concludes Feb. 27 in Sofia, Bulgaria.
