Though soccer is a very physically strenuous sport, many soccer fans underestimate the importance of psychological steadiness and intimdiation of opposing players.

In this UEFA Training Ground tutorial, soccer star Woody teaches you how to take the Penenka penalty kick. Invented and sharpened by Czechoslovakian player Antonin Penenka in 1976 UEFA European Championship against West Germany, the kick requires nothing more than faking the direction you're going to kick.
