Amongst goals, scoring from the spot — despite the occasional accompaniment of circumstantially meaningful tension — is typically a somewhat drab display of the beautiful game’s most climactic event.

Thankfully, players sometimes try to spice things up a bit — at least when the stakes are relatively low. Many thanks to FC Baar’s Joonas Jokinen for one of the more creative penalty kicks we’ve seen in some time.
