Eden Hazard has revealed he did a Panenka because he knew the goalkeeper was going to dive.
When asked to explain the reason for his Panenka penalty against Newcastle United, Hazard said: “In my head, when I have the ball in my hand, I just say to myself what is the best way to score?
“I knew the goalkeeper was going to dive so I tried to put it in the middle and it’s a goal, so it’s good. It’s a risk, but it’s a goal. In football, you have to take risks sometimes.”
