FAIL! Actor Will Smith takes awful penalty at UEFA Champions League final event
American celebrities haven’t got a great record when it comes to taking penalties. Diana Ross famously ‘broke the goal’ with the power of her dribbled penalty in the opening ceremony of the 1994 World Cup, and now Will Smith has very much become the Diana Ross of the 21st century.
The actor was present at a UEFA event to promote the Champions League final and the new film in which he co-stars with his son (I don’t know the name, and from what I hear it doesn’t deserve the oxygen of publicity), when he was invited to take a penalty against former Manchester United and Fulham goalkeeper Edwin Van Der Sar.
It’s just a god awful penalty, it really is. When will they learn how to kick the ball properly? Even his second effort is woeful, although at least on target.
