Penalty taker trolled as he misses spot-kick after taking ‘slowest stroll ever’

You know when you do something really embarrassing and every now and then your mates re-post the video of it on Facebook and everyone has a laugh at your expense?

Well that's exactly how Brazilian footballer Caique Oliveira feels after taking one of the worst penalties known to science back in 2019 during the Copa Verde final (Brazil's answer to the EFL Trophy essentially) – a penalty that was mercilessly caught on film.

Oliveira opted for a slow run-up. But when we say slow, we mean Paul Pogba – and his silly jogging technique – looks like Roadrunner by comparison.

After placing the ball down, Oliveira retreats to the edge of the 'D' before embarking on his long voyage back towards the penalty spot.

He strolls forward like a bored child following his mum around a supermarket, eventually reaching the ball after 20 agonising seconds, before taking a defiant step back and thwacking the ball against the post.

To make matters worse, his team – who went on to lose seconds later – would have been crowned champs if he'd scored. What a plonker.

The video of the atrocious effort went viral again this week with fans on social media sarcastically branding it "the greatest penalty of all time".

"Brudda walked the entire length of the pitch, took a step back and fired it into the dressing room," one fan tweeted.

Another wrote: "This is the greatest penalty of all time! How did the ref keep a straight face?"

"What is this? This can't be real hahah," a third commented, while a fourth said: "Are you kidding me loool".

"What a helmet," another fan eloquently tweeted.
