Video: Arjen Robben Has Just Scored the Worst Panenka Penalty Ever

Arjen Robben‘s penalty has handed Holland a 1-0 lead over Sweden… even if the ball barely trickled over the line.

Holland will have to produce an epic performance if they are to qualify for the World Cup this evening, with Dick Advocaat’s men needing to beat Sweden 7-0 to progress to the play-offs.

While that scoreline is increasingly unlikely, especially given the fact Sweden have conceded just seven goals in nine qualifiers, it took Robben fifteen minutes to find the net from the penalty spot.

Even if it was the luckiest penalty in the Bayern Munich winger’s career:

Sweden conceded the spot-kick after Manchester United defender Victor Lindelöf was judged to have controlled the ball with his hand inside the box.

Holland have continued to knock on the door throughout the first half.

However, with the game quickly approaching the half-time interval, it’s surely inconceivable that the Dutch will score another six?
