Panenka in football is a technique used in penalty shoot-out in which the player, instead of kicking the ball directly into the goal trajectory, gives a subtle touch underneath the ball, causing it to rise and fall within the goal thus deceiving the goalkeeper. It is a very risky technique, because the subtle touch on the ball gives it a very slow speed, thus allowing the goalkeeper to move back from where he jumped to or even just stay at the same spot and wait for the ball to easily fall on his hands. The move is known for only being used by fearless players who dare to risk missing the kick in a shameful way. Because of the high risk of missing the kick, some players that used the panenka kick were criticized by the specialized media or their team's members and supporters for being frivolous, using an unnecessary method to score the goal.
