Abreu’s nickname is ‘El Loco’, the crazy man, and he was a bit gutsy and crazy to take the shot like this from the penalty spot in the World Cup. Below is Sebastian Abreu’s panenka penalty. How often does the keeper guess or dive before a penalty kick is taken?
This was shades of Zidane in the World Cup final in 2006, where he too calmly chipped the ball over the keeper. Watch Abreu’s paneka penalty kick in the video below.
