    Brad Guzan whenever he was in goal for us (Villa) was always so good when it came to saving penalties.
    We beat Juventus in the final of the peace-up (pre-season) on penalties, with Guzan saving penalties from Del Piero and Iaquinta. We got through to the semi-final of the Carling Cup in 2010 after beating Sunderland on penalties, with Guzan saving 3 Sunderland penalties, and on-top of those he also saved a Kenwyne Jones penalty during normal time which may of won the game for Sunderland before extra-time.
    I also remember him saving a penalty in injury time in an FA Cup game against Bristol Rovers, a game we then went on to win.

    Balotelli is V. good at penalties and whatever you say/think about him he won't let pressure get to him. I saw an interview with him where he said he never missed a penalty in a professional match.

    Well Balotelli supposedly puts 99/100 past Joe Hart in training, so it's hard to overlook him.

    This is the biggest myth.

    He's missed every important penalty he's ever had to take at club level:

    West Ham
    Barca
    Chelsea
    Bayern

    This fascination that Germans are somehow genetically superior at penalties is horse****.
    Genetically superior, obviously not true, however high pressure penalties are more about your mentality. The Germans go into them believing, almost knowing they've won already. English players go into them thinking they've lost.

    I'd like to mention Owen Hargreaves as one of the best high pressure penalty takers.

    Ashley Cole can score some pretty high pressure ones. Schweinstegers miss was a one off.

    Even though I'm a Chelsea fan; I've never thought Mata's have been that good-he's pretty predictable tbh

    Scoring one penalty in a World Cup quarter final makes you 'one of the best high pressure penalty takers'?

    And a Champion's League final. And a Euro quarter final.

    Petr Cech - Dived the right way in every single penalty in the champions league final and saved 3 was it?
    2-3 in the whole game and yes this is what I would say for this very reason.
