Chelsea midfielder Jorginho is widely regarded as the best penalty taker in the world.

The Brazilian-born Italy international has scored every penalty he has taken (in regular time) since arriving at Chelsea in the summer of 2018.

The 27 year old midfielder converted a penalty to help Italy beat Greece 2-0 and secure qualification for next summer’s Euro 2020.

His penalty against Greece was the 17th in his career at regular time and the Italian international has only missed once.

Jorginho’s only miss from the penalty spot (in regular time) was back in late November in 2017 when Udinese goalkeeper Simone Scuffet denied him but Jorginho reacted quick enough to convert the rebound.

Since then, he has converted all six penalty attempts.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard recently revealed Jorginho was now Chelsea’s designated penalty taker and the Italian deserves to be our designated penalty taker given his record at taking penalties.
