Fulham’s penalties get worse when Ivan Cavaleiro hits his OWN FOOT for yet another shocking miss – and it’s her first return leg since Ademola Lookman’s embarrassing, fluffy Panenka!
Fulham’s Ivan Cavaleiro missed the club’s third penalty this season as Craven Cottage continued to struggle from 12 yards.
Cavaleiro was the man who took responsibility against Everton but the 27-year-old messed up his lines on Sunday.
Fulham were 3-1 behind when Ben Godfrey fouled substitute Ruben Loftus-Cheek in the box, but Cavaleiro lost his footing on promotion.

The winger’s standing left foot slipped, causing his right foot to hit his own foot and the ball sailed far over the bar.
Fulham striker Aleksandar Mitrovic missed a penalty in a 1-1 draw with Sheffield United last month, while Ademola Lookman caused a terrible Panenka defeat at West Ham on November 7.
TV presenter Gary Lineker responded to another Fulham penalty kick and wrote on Twitter: “This game is insane. Lots of goals and another absurd penalty from @fulham. ‘

While other fans have claimed Scott Parker’s team are “cursed” when it comes to penalties.
One tweet read: ‘OH MY GOD! What a miss! Ivan Cavaleiro slips onto the penalty and flies it. Fulham are cursed men while another said: Fulham are cursed boys. Even Mitrovic missed Scotland lol. ‘
Mitrovic saw his penalty saved by Scotland goalkeeper David Marshall in Serbia’s Euro 2020 play-off earlier this month.
BBC expert Danny Murphy said: “The angle is too tight [on Cavaleiro’s approach]. We both know he slipped. It is an unorthodox way of imposing a penalty. Leave your foot behind. Whoever will take the next one. ‘

While Lineker added, “I think Lookman should take the next one with a panenka, that’s the last thing they expected.”
Lookman had a chance to earn a point for Fulham against West Ham in added time earlier this month, but his abandoned attempt was tame and floated right into the arms of goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski.
The 23-year-old promised to bring in the next one after the humiliating attempt but had no chance of making amends against Everton this weekend.
Loftus-Cheek pulled back a goal against the Toffees shortly after Cavaleiro’s miss for a nervous finish, but Everton held on to score a 3-2 win.
