England Penalty Shoot Outs

  • The first penalty shoot-out, or to give it it's official name "Kicks from the penalty mark", that England were involved in, was against Germany in the World Cup '90 semi-final.
    Penalty shoot-outs are covered in rule 10 of the game as dictated by the rule making body IFAB. They are primarily used in competitions where a result must be forced on the day. The first major tournament to include penalty shoot-outs was the 1976 European Championship. Prior to that there was usually a replay within a couple of days of the draw, or in the case of the Home Championship the title was shared. However, modern day football demands a winner. We are not convinced that winning on penalties should be classified as a full win - even FIFAs own ranking procedure doesn't give full points to a team who "won on penalties". Therefore we have taken the decision to classify penalty shoot-outs as draws. You might be inclined to think this a cynical tactic by us to ease the pain of England's usual capitulation in shoot-outs but please read on - England aren't that bad at taking penalties these days. Besides, the winner of the shoot-out progresses to the next round or is crowned champions - the loser gets nothing - not much to say for a team that has battled and matched their foe for one hundred and twenty minutes before the lottery of penalty kicks - we think that the least the victor can do is conceed a draw is worthy of both teams.

  • Penalty Shootout: England 3-4 West Germany, 4th Jul 1990 at Stadio delle Alpi, Turin (WCF)
  • 1 - West Germany Gary Lineker - Thumped low to Illgner's left. The keeper goes the wrong way.
  • 1 - XoppnameX Andreas Brehme - Similar to Lineker's penalty but more placed into the corner than with speed. Shilton guesses right but it's well out of his reach.

  • 4 - XoppnameX Stuart Pearce - Thumped down the middle, Illgner had dived to his right but managed to get his left knee in the way. Hit with such force the ball ricochets all the way back to the centre circle.
