Play of the day: Is this the worst penalty kick ever? (+ video)

Tucking away a penalty kick takes a cool head and nerves of steel, but it appears Red Bull Salzburg's Jonathan Soriano lacks both of those qualities.

Stepping up with his team trailing 2-0 against Rapid Vienna in the Austrian Bundesliga, Soriano thumped the ball so high you would have been forgiven for thinking it was Dan Carter lining up a conversion from halfway.

To make matters worse, Red Bull failed to find a way back into the game after his howler - probably because his team-mates were still laughing themselves silly.
