Teammates get into shoving match over who takes penalty, winner’s shot gets saved

When Guizhou Renhe player Hyure was tripped in the box during a Chinese Super League game against Shanghai Shenxin, an argument ensued over who would take the resulting penalty. It did not involve Hyure.

Guizhou Renhe captain Krzysztof Maczynski and Ricardo Santos did some pushing and shoving as they had a childish argument over who would take the penalty, before Maczynski finally won out. Of course, fighting with your own teammate isn’t the best way to mentally prepare for a spot kick, so his shot was saved.

Maczynski and Santos did make amends later, though — as the Polish captain set up the Brazilian for a winner in the 80th minute.
