As penalty shootouts go that is fairly bloody good.

As our Mark Ogden factors out it has been fairly the barren run for David De Gea with regards to penalty shootouts:
Cannot blame De Gea for the penalty miss, however he is now failed to save lots of his final 35 spot-kicks. He did not appear like saving any both. With all the information keepers now have on penalties, that is simply not adequate for a keeper of his repute

One of many many issues Emery stated within the ESPN interview with @fernandopalomo : penalties aren’t luck.

Villarreal’s first-ever trophy triumph means quite a bit to everybody concerned however how about star centre-back Pau Torres, who was born within the city of Villarreal and joined the membership in 1996 at age six! What a journey!
