There are moments in football when time stands still. Moments when the significance of one small action can have a major impact on the outcome of a match, or even a whole tournament.
Penalties are such moments, presenting the attacker with one of their biggest chances to score – but some can buckle under the pressure, or see the opposing goalkeeper make the most of their moment in the spotlight and thwart their efforts.
While Roma haven’t been without their penalty misses over the years – who can forget the lost shootout to Serie B side Spezia in the 2015-16 Coppa Italia – they have generally been fortunate to have had a number of players capable of scoring from 12 yards. But how many can you remember?
In this quiz, you have 10 minutes to see if you can remember the 16 players who scored a penalty for Roma in Serie A between the start of 2010 (i.e. midway through the 2009-10 season) and the end of 2019 (part way through the current campaign).
The player at the top of the list should come as no surprise, but perhaps there will be some names on there that you had forgotten had scored a penalty. Or can you really impress and name them all?
Only penalties scored in Serie A are counted, so those players who only scored penalties in the Coppa Italia, Champions League or Europa League are not included.
Once you’ve had a go, share your score on Twitter, Facebook, or by commenting on this post.
