Video: Pitch invader takes the worst penalty kick of all time, but it leaves players in stitches

Everton managed to beat Juventus 6-5 in a penalty shootout yesterday, but not before a pitch invader stole a penalty kick (and the show) from midfielder Kwadwo Asamoah.

This was probably the easiest save Tim Howard has ever had to make in his life, mainly because it was just some random bloke from the crowd that was kicking the ball at him...

A pitch invader wearing a Birdman hat ran out onto the pitch at the AT&T Park in San Francisco yesterday and kicked the ball straight into his arms.

While the pitch invader's shot was pretty woeful, the Everton defender John Stones netted an absolute cracker...
