Panenka 76 – Football Fanzine, The penalty kick genius from the 1976 Euro Final

In 1891 the original penalty kick was introduced into the game. Since then, players have stepped up to the spot, 12 yards from goal in an attempt to beat the opposing goal keeper. In 1976, some 85 years later, an unknown footballer by the name of Antonín Panenka stepped up to take a penalty kick that astonished the football world. It’s a great story and one that every fan needs to know. This fanzine is about that genius moment in The Red Star Stadium, Belgrade in 1976.
