Penalties are often considered sure goals.
But with the pressure of a nation on their shoulders, footballer’s legs often turn to jelly when they reach the spot.
Here are the five worst World Cup penalties.
Even the best can’t be perfect every time. Argentina progressed but Maradona’s penalty was so poor we’re surprised it was the man himself.

West Germany and England played out an incredibly tense game but Waddle’s penalty proved costly. The Germans went on to win the tournament.
The most heartbreaking miss of all. After an incredible tournament, Baggio skied his penalty in the final shootout as Brazil were crowned world champions.
Take your pick! We can’t separate these three dreadful efforts as England collapsed against Portugal.
