PALMEIRAS star Rony left fans in hysterics as he produced ‘one of the worst penalties’ ever seen.
The Club World Cup clash against Al Ahly SC went to penalties after extra-time finished 0-0 on Thursday.

Three Palmeiras’ players missed from 12 yards – but Rony’s was the worst of the lot.
He tried to combine techniques used by the likes of Neymar, Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba.
But the 25-year-old failed miserably before his team crashed out of the competition.
Rony looked full of confidence as he started his run-up from outside of the box.
He sprinted towards the ball then slowed the right down in a bid to trick the keeper.
After eight seconds, his stuttered run-up was complete and he pulled the trigger.
He channelled his inner Fernandes as he jumped just before he struck the ball.

But Al Ahly goalkeeper Mohamed El Shenawi easily saved the shocking strike.
After the match, a clip of Rony’s overly ambitious penalty went viral on Twitter.
One fan said: “Rony for Palmeiras has just taken one of the worst penalties I’ve seen in a long time. Looked like he was drunk.”
Another added: “Palmeiras can you teach your players how to kick a penalty? What is this?”
And one said: “Absolutely horrendous penalty miss from Rony for Palmeiras, was so obvious he was going to miss as soon as he started the ridiculously long run up and then hesitating too much.”
