Blast from the past: Panenka’s chip in 76

This is a story from the FSF archive – the FSF and SD merged to become the FSA in 2019.

Last week’s Champions League final proved that German sides can lose penalty shoot outs and one of the most famous examples occurred in the 1976’s European Championship final. The game finished 2-2 and in the subsequent shoot out Czechoslovakia’s Antonin Panenka won the trophy with an astonishingly cool chip down the middle of the goal. "If it were patentable, I’d have it patented," joked Panenka.
