Incredible penalty shootout between Germany and Italy


Written by Mathias Boughey-Svendsen

That was (probably) the worst penalty shootout in history, but it certainly had people on the edge of their seat. Watch how Luca lived out the quarter final between Italy and Germany.

The game between Italy and Germany was one for the historians. Never had Germany beaten Italy at a major tournament - a pretty crazy statistic, considering this is Germany we are talking about here. EURO16 would however turn out to be the tournament, where the curse was lifted. Even if they made serious work of it.

18 kicks were needed before the Germans could finally raise their hands in jubilation. And what a penalty shootout that was! No less than 7 misses, the one worse than the other. It put Luca through a serious roller coaster of emotion, while he watched from the stands at Stade de Bordeaux.
