Worst. Penalty. Ever.

Way down the football food-chain in Brazil we find the Piauiense division, and on Thursday night the meeting between Piaui Teresina and Flamengo Teresina produced one of the worst penalty attempts ever seen. Ever.

Already trailing 2-nil, hosts Piaui were handed the chance from the spot to pull a goal back and restore a little pride. While the decision itself looked hugely controversial, striker Nenem stepped up to take the spot-kick, but things could scarcely have gone any worse.

The ball did not come close to exiting the field. And yet the keeper was in no way, shape or form forced to have to make a save.

See what happened here.
