Ron Vlaar's Penalty Appeared To Almost Roll Back into the Goal

Ron Vlaar took the Netherlands' first penalty attempt in an eventual shootout against Argentina. 

He was denied by Argentina goalkeeper Sergio Romero.

Or was he? 

In fan footage of his attempt, Romero does indeed deny the Dutch man. But the ball rolls back toward the goal line and nearly goes in. 

Upon even closer inspection, though, the ball appears to first hit off of his shoulder.

Such an incident would hardly have been unprecedented. For all of our amusement:
