It is a football topic that polarises both football and many non-football supporters. Many love the theatre and contrasting emotions that a penalty shoot-out brings to opposing teams, officials and more importantly the fans. From a goalkeeping perspective it focuses on the man in box and gives them a chance to shine or to start looking for the largest rock to hide for rest of humanity. The sheer nature of penalties in determining a match gives rise to the argument of it being unjust after a long battle of regular and extra time. Others believe it gives a chance to teams who have fought their way back into a contest. Before the advent of penalty shoot-outs, matches that remained level at the final whistle were more often than not decided by a coin toss or a replay.
