Australia beat 3-2 by a second string German team.  And the Aussie coach stated he thought they could win this tournament.  Sweet mother of divine miracles.

Ronaldo should be stepping up to take the first one if he's the main man. No good waiting for the 5th in the hope of scoring the winner. I'd imagine it's very rare to come from behind to win in a shoot-out.

Poor penalties.

Good saves. The worst penalty was the chile 2nd penalty, he scuffed it down the middle and was lucky the keeper had dived out of the way.

It did in the CL final, a much more important game in fairness, but I'd always want my best penalty taker going first.

Happened against Spain in Euro 2012 semifinal as well, no?

Right you are. I had to look it up. I thought I was making a great point but apparently lots of people all over the world made it about 5 years ago.
