Ha, yep, the numbers don't look good. They didn't look good *before* Sunday's debacle (a couple of weeks ago I posted them at the bottom of page three of this thread) and now they look awful. A first thing I'll say is that the samples, as you acknowledge, are tiny. With such scant information as is available it'd be possible to 'prove' all sorts of patently nonsensical theories, such as 'England in general miss often, but Gazza and Merson had perfect England shootout records - so we should only let alcoholics take penalties', etc etc. An interesting aspect is that, even if black (English) players in truth aren't really worse at penalties, after this the pressure on them is going to be that bit worse, arguably much worse, meaning that history probably will repeat itself, if only for this (rather silly) reason. A third point, I'm partly joking but only partly, how soon will it be before the first hot take from some well-meaning liberal type that penalty shootouts are inherently racist etc (like Wonderlic, etc etc) and that the only non-discriminatory means of deciding drawn matches would be something fairer such as, say, a length-of-pitch relay race to be run by each team's four fastest players? Spotter's badge for the first poster to find such an opinion.
