The question is when was missing the penalty became a crime ? we all know that even the top players can miss the penalty any where any time .
For Example Sadio Mane of Senegal missed more than two penalty in the last African cup of Nation Egypt 2019, but that does not mean that the man can’t play again i think they are not angry about the penalty they are angry about the money they are paying him is too much so he must score the penalty otherwise they will deal with him .

Earlier in the day, Trump called on Israel to block the entry of two Muslim members of Congress from the Democratic Party, which have announced their support for boycott Israel , divestment and sanctions.
Trump added “If Israel allows MPs Ilhan Omar and MP Rachida Tlib to visit, it will be a sign of great weakness on their part,” Trump tweeted.
