The Psychology Of World Cup Penalties

Judging by Germany 2006 and, well, pretty much every other major tournament, the England football team are, um, not very good at penalties. David Batty, Gareth Southgate and Stuart Pearce are all testimony to that fact.

So the England team need all the help they can get if it comes down to sudden death at the World Cup 2010.

Luckily some sports psychologists with rather too much time on their hands have discovered that more players miss penalties against 'keepers wearing red than any other colour.

Just one problem: the England goalkeeper's strip isn't red. Ho hum. And here we go again.
