As Barcelona great Lionel Messi was slotting in Panenka penalties over at the Nou Camp in the Champions League, Celina appeared to fancy some of that himself in England’s second-tier Championship.

With his team 1-0 down heading towards half-time, Kosovan Celina had the chance to level things up from the spot.
But things went disastrously wrong for the 22-year-old as he attempted a short, sharp run-up before slipping as he kicked the ball, sending it just two yards to his right.
Celina pointed to the pitch to claim mitigating circumstances for the shocking miss, but he made life difficult for as his run-up indicated he had been attempting a cheeky Panenka chip – earning himself little sympathy on social media.
