    I don't know wheter you can train on it, but do remember that only penalty kick attribute doesn't decide wheter somebody is good at PK taking. Determination and composure and stats like that also weigh.

    Luca Toni missed 2 penalties in a game for me and we went on to lose 3-2. I missed out on the Champions League that season by 2 points. Keep Luca Toni away from your penalties.

    IMO there is bigger amount of penalties that you miss than cpu,true?
    How many times have you saved a penalty and how many times have you missed? :gavin: :gavin:

    Nah, I don't miss much, but my goalie doesn't save many either. Only in PK series I almost always lose, but hey, I'm Dutch so... :p

    I'm actually pretty good at penalties. I rarely lose penalty shootouts.

    My keeper on Queensland saves a ton of them.

    I just don't have a player who scores them regularly, except Alex Brosque who appears to be made from sand.
