THE most horrific penalty of all time had fans accusing players of match fixing during the recent Ogun State FA Cup final in Nigeria.

Remo Stars took on Ijebu United, with the match going to a shoot-out after a 0-0 draw.


A bizarre sequence during the spot kicks subsequently went viral, with fans crying foul play.

The first suspicious penalty saw the goalkeeper stand completely stationary, seemingly disinterested in even trying to make a save.

But it was the following effort that really got people talking.

The next Remo player to step up whacked the ball as hard as he could in the wrong direction before raising his hands to his head.
