The internet, as it does, had a lot of thoughts about Germany's win over Italy in a penalty kick shootout on Saturday.
The nine-round shootout finished with Germany prevailing yet again, despite their worst performance from the spot in a very long time. It was a surprising nail-biter, and the U.S. Women's National Team was glued to the action on their way to practice:

But most of the internet's reaction was reserved for the attempt from Italy's Simone Zaza. He showed everyone that if you're going to miss, you might as well miss in style. Unfortunately, Zaza was substituted into the match after 120 minutes specifically for the shootout:

His "dance" of tiny stutter steps up to the ball built anticipation and then, well, it was a disaster. His first and only touch on the ball sailed wildly beyond the net. After the match, Zaza began trending on Twitter in the United States.
Some joked that it resembled the "running man challenge" that has gone viral online over the past year:
