The England football team is notorious for missing penalty kicks in vital matches. The author looks at the history of the penalty from its arrival in 1890 to its dramatic effects on the contemporary game, and asks whether England can overcome their phobia of the penalty.

From the Inside Flap:

The penalty shoot-out is great sporting drama - cruel, arbitrary, tortuous and unfair - everything we profess not to like about competition but secretly crave. Score, and few will remember; miss, and no one will forget. On Penalties is an exploration of the growing significance of the penalty shot in soccer - from its arrival in the game in 1890 to its spectacular, scene-stealing climax at the end of the 20th century.

About the Author:

Andrew Anthony writes for the Observer and Daily Telegraph. He lives in London and supports Tottenham Hotspurs.

Book Description Vintage Publishing, United Kingdom, 2001. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The penalty shoot-out is the greatest set piece of sporting drama ever conceived. Cruel, arbitrary, tortuous and unfair, it has also presented the England football team with a new and infinitely more punishing manner in which to lose. Three times in the past decade the nation has sat on the edge of its collective sofa and watched the seemingly inevitable unfold as Stuart Pearce, Chris Waddle, Gareth Southgate, Paul Ince and David Batty have selected the wrong shots in the lottery of international championship shoot-outs. Except it s not a lottery. There is an art to scoring penalties, which calls upon a unique combination of physical prowess and psychological strength. In the corridor of truth that leads from the penalty spot to the goal-line, a succession of English footballers have had to confront not only the opposing goalkeeper but the hopes and dreams of fans and fellow countrymen and, of course, themselves. Score and few will remember; miss and - as the above list of names testifies - no one will forget. Talking to some of the game s most successful players and managers, the question the book seeks to address is simple: can England overcome their fear of the penalty?.
