England Suck at Penalites

England have competed in seven games ending in penalties, winning once, against Spain in 1996 — a tournament they still exited on penalties against Germany in the very next round.

They have also been eliminated on penalties at the World Cup in 1990, 1998 and 2006 and also at the European Championship in 2004 and 2012.

Steven Gerrard was even asked about their terrible record leading up to this years World Cup, and he said he wasn’t worried.
