Nine straight penalty misses in Japanese Super Cup

Watch: Iniesta's Vissel Kobe and Yokohama miss nine straight penalties in dramatic Super Cup shootout

February 8, 2020 By Ali M.
Vissel Kobe ended up lifting the trophy but only after an embarrassing penalty shootout which saw nine consecutive misses.

Today, Andres Iniesta added another piece of silverware to his decorated trophy candidate. The Spanish icon led Vissel Kobe to a Fuji Xerox Super Cup final win over Yokohama FM, beating their rivals in one of the most dramatic and eye-catching penalty shootouts. 

What made this one stand out? After the game ended in a 3-3 draw, penalties were the only way to decide the winner. However, the shootout saw the finalists miss nine consecutive spot kicks – yes, nine!

Both Vissel and Yokohoma converted their first two efforts with, with Iniesta taking and scoring the first penalty for his side. With everything tied at 2-2, here is where the farce began.

From those nine misses, only three were saved by a goalkeeper, with the rest either smashing into the woodwork or blazing over the crossbar. After heading into sudden death, another three penalties were missed before Hotaru Yamaguchi to bring an end to this drama at 3-2. Watch it in the video below (no copyright infringement intended in the use of this unofficial video highlight).

The Japanese Super Cup is Iniesta's second title in Japan and his 37th career trophy overall. It is not the most glamorous prize he has won, but it is a memorable triumph given that unforgettable penalty shootout.
