#WWC2015: Penalty shoot out Germany v France

I have been monitoring penalty shoot outs in a range of football competitions. My most recent example is the penalty shoot out in the 2015 Women's World Cup between Germany and France. My record of the ten penalties taken can be found here. The video I used to review the shoot out was not of high quality. From what I saw, all the penalties taken were goalkeeper independent. Both teams were successful in their third and fourth penalties. The team that took the first penalty won the shoot out. It was the higher ranked team too.

Penalty Taking in Football

I have a number of Clyde Street posts about penalty shootouts in football tournaments. I have been trying to compile accurate observations about the penalty taker and the goalkeeper. Last year, I wrote a post for The Conversation about penalty shootouts. I included a reference to research by Benjamin Noel and his colleagues.  His paper has appeared in the Journal of Sports Sciences (2015). I did not cite in that post Erman Misirlisoy and Patrich Haggard's (2014) paper on asymmetric predictability and cognitive competition in football penalty shootouts. They report data from "all 361 kicks from the 37 penalty shootouts that occurred in...

It came down to penalties taken by the goalkeepers and was won with the twenty-second penalty of the shoot out. The penalty taker was Boubacar Barry. Ivory Coast won the shoot out 9 v 8. My record of the shoot out is here. I have been looking carefully at penalty shoot outs since listening to Tim McGarry's presentation at a Dagstuhl seminar in 2011.
