Zimbabwe club fails attempt at Messi’s trick penalty kick

Thursday February 25th, 2016

Zimbabwe’s Dynamos FC failed in its attempt to imitate Lionel Messi’s trick penalty kick during a friendly against WhaWha FC.

Roderick Mutuma lined up to take the penalty shot, but passed to Valentine Ndaba, who sent the ball dribbling far to the right of the goal. Dynamos still won the match, 4–0.

The original kick, executed by Messi and Luis Suarez, elevated Barcelona to a 6–1 victory over Celta Vigo on Feb. 14.
