Japan Better than Zaza
Komi Ryota has gone viral after taking a penalty in the same style as Simone Zaza did at Euro 2016, but doing so much more effectively.
Zara‘s penalty kick became a meme after the Italian took several mini steps in a shootout against Germany, before blasting his effort over the bar.
Ryota, though, was much more successful as he took a penalty in a university match. He took as many as 50 little steps, before successfully converting.
This form of taking penalties is disliked by goalkeepers and shot-stoppers around the world will be hoping that others don’t start trying to copy the Japanese player.
