Fulham's penalty woes get even WORSE as Ivan Cavaleiro shoots against his own foot

Fulham’s penalty woes get even WORSE as Ivan Cavaleiro shoots against his OWN FOOT for another shocking miss – and it’s their first game back since Ademola Lookman’s embarrassing fluffed panenka!

  • Fulham’s chaotic season took another tumble as Ivan Cavaleiro missed a penalty 
  • The winger fluffed his spot kick in horrendous fashion with his side losing 3-1 
  • Cavaleiro lost his footing and hit the ball over the bar at Craven Cottage
  • Ademola Lookman grabbed headlines last time out after his failed panenka   

Fulham’s Ivan Cavaleiro missed the club’s third penalty of the season as troubles from 12 yards remain at Craven Cottage.

Cavaleiro was the man to shoulder the responsibility against Everton but the 27-year-old fluffed his lines on Sunday.

Fulham were trailing 3-1 when Ben Godfrey fouled substitute Ruben Loftus-Cheek in the penalty area but Cavaleiro lost his footing as he stepped up.

The winger’s standing left foot slipped resulting in his right-footed effort hitting off his own foot and the ball sailing well over the bar.  

Fulham striker Aleksandar Mitrovic missed a penalty in their 1-1 draw against Sheffield United last month while Ademola Lookman grabbed the headlines for a terrible panenka effort in defeat at West Ham on November 7.

Television presenter Gary Lineker reacted to another Fulham penalty miss, writing on Twitter: ‘This game is bonkers. Goals aplenty and another absurd penalty from @fulham.’
