This indicates that we are prepared for the thrilling penalty shootout.In 1971, the penalty shootout, with all of its agony and excitement, was added to the rules of football.
However, it wasn’t until West Germany’s 5-4 shootout victory over France in the 1982 World Cup that it became visible.
The top five World Cup penalty shootouts are as follows:
Brazil vs. France, Mexico, 1986, Brazil vs. France, France, 1986 Brazil’s Pele, probably the greatest football player ever, referred to this match in Mexico as “the match of the century.”
The sweltering rays of the Guadalajaran sun did little to slow down either team’s ferocious attack or their skill as they battled their way through this quarterfinal.Socrates-led Brazil, whose midfield “magic quartet” included Michel Platini, Alain Giresse, Jean Tigana, and Luis Fernandez, were taking on European champions France.
On his 31st birthday, Platini scored France’s goal from a typically free-flowing “samba football” Brazilian team play in response to Careca’s goal.After extra time, the game was level at one-one.
Brazil’s first penalty of the shootout was missed by Socrates.While Platini was unable to maintain his composure and sent France’s fourth goal into space, Fernandez managed to keep his composure and score France’s fifth goal.
