Between Goalkeepers And Strikers In A Penalty Shootout, Who Deserve More Credit?

By - - [ Sport ]

Goalkeepers are suppose to save the ball from entering the back of the net during a football match while strikers are supposed to do the scoring, but in a penalty shootout anybody can do scoring while the keepers prevent the ball from entering his post.

Now, during shootout who deserve more credit, is the goalkeeper that stop the last kick of an opposite player from entering the back of the net or his follow team player that scored the last kick against his opponent? And Why?

Example the Uefa Super Cup between Liverpool and Chelsea, is it Adrian who stop Abraham ball form going to the back of the net that deserve more credit than Salah who scored the last spot kick against Kepa?

Personally I feel Goalkeepers should be given more credit because they have to guess which way the striker is going to put the ball.. 

So they are the ones who have a harder job to do

It depends on where the pressure lies. Say if it's the last spot-kick where the striker misses and his team loses, the credit should go to the stiker for scoring and vice-versa. In terms of the UEFA Super Cup the credit should go to Adrian, because he redeemed himself after initially conceeding the spot-kick that lead to the equaliser.

On a personal terms I feel goal keepers are meant to be given more credit cause they do more work in trying to read the strikers mind on where's hedh place the ball

Seriously credit should be given to the player that score penalty because if keeper safe the ball or not nothing is going to happen to the keeper but if player failed to score it may affect his career.

The goalkeeper. The players have 90% to score a penalty while the goalie only has slight chances of preventing the ball frm entry the net

They all deserve some accolades. In their own field they make marks. If a defender doesn't defend well, they concede goals. If a striker doesn't strike well, they won't score. Likewise, if a midfielder doesn't create chances, they don't score.

I think ,the goal keepers deserve more credits in a penalty shootout,because without the goal keeper there would be tremendous unprotected goals at the goal post

The Strikers deserves more credit cause they are the one we blame when a Goal keeper saves a penalty..

We believe any Goalie can concedes a penalty but A striker has to make sure he scores even from the world best Goal keeper to avoid criticism

I believe it should be the player because the player is usually under a very huge pressure while the keeper may decide to dive any side of his choice but it becomes that he'll save the kick

The goalkeepers and the strikers deserve  credit but in a penalty shoot out, the goalkeepers deserve more credit because the whole team will depend on them to win the match in this situation.

To me I think goalkeepers should be given more credit. The goal post is wide enough so every player is expected to score. The goalkeepers have the main work here because they have to calculate where the ball will pass through and they boost the morals of their players

The goal keeper deserves more credit.  He has almost 22ft to cover, he need a lot of reflexes to save a penalty

Goalkeepers should be given more credits because they do the mind work here,even without having training with the opposition team they tend to guess where the ball goes and save it accordingly. Goalkeepers also make sure his team does not lose.

The goal keeper should really be given more credit this is because no one can see the future or tell what will happen next so for a goal keeper to be able to calculate were the player will play the ball to is really hard and still yet some of them really do their best and prevent the ball from going into the post so goal keepers should always be given the credits

The goalkeepers deserve the credit more than the strikers, there's more pressure in defending the ball than trying to shoot it in.

The goal keepers have the edge when it comes to penalty shootout. They read the directions of the football and also has the ability to force a player to play it wide.

In terms of the UEFA Super Cup the credit should go to Adrian, because he redeemed himself after initially conceeding the spot-kick that lead to the equaliser.

The keeper should be the one they are the one putting there live at risk just to save the whole team.

Strikers are just find one agle and send the ball.

And for the keeper he will not decide until the ball is played so keepers deserve the credit.

The striker and the goalkeeper are of good importance in a football match.  In the sense that without them, there would be a defeat. And also, in the aspect of who deserves more credit, I think it is the goalkeeper, because the striker may not be able to score a goal but once the post is highly secured by the goalkeeper, there Will be no defeat .

Goalkeepers deserves more credit of course.A striker might strike and still not goal but is the goalkeeper that is preventing the goal. But anyways, if the striker score more goals and the goalkeeper cannot prevent the goal, then the striker deserves more credit.

I give my credits to the goal keepers, because, goalkeepers participate in every shootout, some goal keepers even take penalties, but a player can’t be a goal keeper. And it’s not very easy for a goal keeper to guess right in a penalty shootout. So my full credits goes to the goal keepers.
