The Secret of Marco Amelia's Success: Playstation

Yesterday night in Palermo against AC Milan (3 x 1), Marco Amelia faced Ronaldinho on two spot kicks.

He stopped the first and came very close on the second. But note his comments after the game about the first shot.

First Attempt



"It was like playing against Ronaldinho on Playstation. He did the same run-up, and it was very strange."
Quote Courtesy of Football Italia.

Second Attempt




Perhaps an example of life imitating art.
