FIFA was forced to ban the genius penalty technique that Neymar had perfected
Neymar’s penalty technique during his time with Santos was so good that FIFA eventually stepped in to ban it. Since he was a youngster coming through at Santos, it was already clear that Neymar had a bundle of talent and skill in his locker. His impressive performances in Brazil earned him a blockbuster move to La Liga giants Barcelona in 2013, before a world-record move to Paris Saint Germain in 2017.
He was the main man to step up from 12 yards out during his stint at Santos. Neymar’s run-up was second to none, as he would stop before making contact with the ball. At this stage, the goalkeeper would move to one side, and Neymar would simply slot the ball into the other. In total, He scored 11 out of 14 penalties he took for Santos.
However, Neymar was later forced to change his whole run-up due to FIFA’s decision to ban the feint right before kicking the ball. Despite having to change one of his most famous run-ups, Neymar still has a wonderful record from 12 yards and is one of the best penalty-takers in football. Currently, Neymar is recovering from ankle surgery as his 22/23 season looks set to be over, with PSG looking to retain their Ligue 1 crown.
