Playing in front of his home fans, with a place in the UEFA Champions League group stage on the line during a tense penalty shootout Tuesday, Udinese's Maicosuel stepped to the spot and tried to catch Sporting Braga goalkeeper Beto off guard with a Panenka, a chip down the center along the likes of what Andrea Pirlo so fearlessly did against England during Euro 2012. The result? An embarrassingly easy save, and the only miss of the shootout, as Braga advanced and Udinese are destined for the Europa League. Enjoy:
