Penalty shootouts

I feel so sorry for Saka, the teenager who missed the crucial penalty in the European Championship shootout.  He will never forget and many English people will never let him forget.  He will be booed and jeered in public and it will affect his mental health.  Soccer is an International sport played by over 250 million people in more than 200 countries.  It’s time to find a better solution than this absurd penalty shootout farce.  He’s lucky he lives in England – in some countries his life would be in danger.
