On July 24, Ezequiel Calvente scored with his "wrong foot" in a penalty against Italy, confusing the Italian keeper. It has raised a few eyebrows in the soccer world.



Spain U19 star Ezequiel Calvente shows just how it should be done by scoring an audacious 'switch-hit' penalty against Italy at the U19 European Championships in France.

The Real Betis midfielder beats the Italian keeper with ease after running up to seemingly hit the spot kick with his right foot only to surprise everyone by hitting with his left.

It's not illegal as far as I know. The keeper protested, but the goal was approved. I wonder if we'll see more "switch-hit" penalties in the future?
