Cameroonian takes an age and looks rather stupid.
There’s nothing better a cocky penalty-taker…but only when the ball nestles safely in the back of the net.
Balotelli, Zidane, Pirlo et al. all have all arrogantly strolled up and dispatched cool spot-kicks. And you would expect the world’s best paid player to be able to do the same.
Anzhi star Samuel Eto’o took a ridiculously long time strolling up to this penalty in last night’s Europa League clash with Hamburg, stuttered and then embarrassingly saw his weak kick saved.
He did at least sprint after the rebound.
Anzhi did win the match 3-1, with Eto’o getting on the scoresheet before being stretched off injured. All in all, it was a pretty eventful evening for the former Barcelona man.
