VIDEO: Banfield's Sarmiento suffers panenka penalty woe

Not only did the Taladro star fluff his effort from the spot, but his attempt to turn in the rebound led to a free-kick for relieved Tigre

Banfield star Brian Sarmiento was left red-faced after he squandered not one, but two attempts to score from a single penalty!

The Argentine was tasked with converting from the spot with his side 1-0 up against Tigre in Saturday's Primera Division clash.

Perhaps emboldened by the scoreline, he attempted to chip the ball over Javier Garcia, only to see the Panenka crash off the bar.

And Sarmiento compounded his error by heading home into the empty net, perhaps not realising that as nobody else had touched the ball he was bound to be called back for a foul!

It might be some time before the playmaker is given penalty duties again after this comedy of errors, which you can see above.
