Video: Juventus player kicks ground, claims for penalty

Arturo Vidal made a shameful attempt to win a penalty against Real Madrid last night.

JUVENTUS LOST 2-1 to Real Madrid in Group B of the Champions League last night and salt was rubbed in the wound by one of their own players. Chilean midfielder Arturo Vidal surged into the box and drew the trigger only to make firm contact with the ground, completely missing the ball.

Instead of owning up to the mistake and getting back into position, Vidal shamefully decided to appeal for a penalty, claiming that he had been tripped from behind. Thankfully, German ref Manuel Gräfe was having none of it and waved play on.

Real move into a commanding lead at the top of the group after their third win in three European games this season. Cristiano Ronaldo scored both goals in the victory last night, and Vidal could probably do with taking shooting lessons from the Portuguese star.
