Maybe, just maybe, they were all excellent penalties and the penalty takers should be afforded some credit ?

Wow what a penalty shootout! Great way to win,but awful way to lose. Cannot believe we scored 10 penalties! Shows the belief in the side to stand up,especially after conceding late on after scoring what looked like the winner in injury time.
