You have to face a nerve wrecking penalty shoot-out at the end of the game when a cup game or qualifier ends in a draw after extra-time. Penalty shoot-outs rarely go on beyond the first 10 penalties.

Skills required

Like regular penalties, both the player's Set Pieces and his experience skill should be taken into consideration, but for a penalty shoot-out scoring skill and technical specialty are important too. At every penalty (not during regular match time, though) a test of the players experience is carried out. At this point, don't send forth your shaky 17-year old debutante as the first penalty taker!

For keepers, Set Pieces and the Goalkeeping skills.

Recapping, the skills taken into consideration include Scoring, Set Pieces, as well as the technical specialty for penalty-takers. The player least skilled at these abilities should be at the bottom of this list.

Penalty takers

Before a cup game or a qualifier, you should decide the order of your penalty takers. This can be done with a special orders form under the regular orders list.

As for the order of the first 5 penalty takers, it isn't important. All teams start off with five penalties each, and if the game is still drawn after that, it'll proceed with sudden-death penalties – each team taking one penalty each until it's all been decided.
