Penalty shoot-out

(Sport: Soccer)

Definition

Competition used to decide the winning team if the scores are still level after extra time. The teams take five penalty kicks each, with a different player required to take each one. The team that scores the highest number of penalties wins the shoot-out and the match. If both teams score an equal number, then the competition enters a "sudden-death" phase in which the first team to miss loses the match.
