“Anyone can miss a penalty, he has scored so many penalties and it is normal to miss one.

“It is simple, if you want to take it, you take it. I took one last week so for me it’s no problem that he took it.

“It’s unfortunate he didn’t score but that’s football. The confidence that you’re going to score is always the same. We practice all week and we score the majority of them.”
