Remember, shootouts only come after two 45-minutes periods and two 15-minute overtime periods. That's 2 full hours of soccer. These players are physically and mentally exhausted, playing for the greatest trophy in the world, and they know that there are billions of people watching their every move.
And they are all playing for this:
|The World Cup Trophy|
|The Women's World Cup Trophy|
And here is another spectacular shootout, but I was unable to embed the video in this post. But it's worth watching.
