Courtois was allowed to take the Blues’ second spot kick at the end of the match, which ended 1-1 in regular time, and missed quite sensationally by blasting way over the top.

Antonio Conte faced some heavy criticism for the decision to allow the shot stopper to take the penalty, however, following the game, he told the press that Courtois is one of the best penalty kick takers in training.
“Courtois is one of the best players to kick a penalty,” the manager explained (H/T Express).

“If you have a player who shows you during the training sessions to be one of the best then you pick him to shoot the penalty.
“Don’t forget that also Morata is a forward and he did the same.”
