Italy lost 6-5 on penalties to Germany at Euro 2016 on Saturday night and Simone Zaza's spot kick was just incredible. The run up! What was he thinking?
Antonio Conte brought on Zaza in the final moments of extra time, surely because he was meant to be a penalty specialist, but the striker sent his penalty high and wide after a quite bizarre run up.
Zaza took what can only be described as a whole host of pigeon steps before blasting over, and Italy were eventually dumped out.
He found no sympathy from Twitter, either ...
