At halftime of the Manchester United versus Barcelona friendly match, the LA Lakers guard Kobe Bryant stepped up and calmly slotted the ball home from the spot. Take a look.
Who was the goalie on Kobe's pk? Casually cool. Think he's got loads of potential.
Bryant also has some skills on the ball, watch him juggle the ball a few times before he takes the penalty, hands in pockets and all. I wonder if he learned any of these skills from Marta.
Bryant then took part in the charity game put on by Mia Hamm the next day. He said he's always loved the way Barcelona plays. He has been a soccer fan for a long time and wore the Barcelona jersey on the cover of Sports Illustrated.
