Perhaps now many would rectify the words they said about that penalty. 7 Today is two years ago from what we could call ‘the longest penalty in the world’. Not that I’m going to compete with the movie Roberto Santiago with the same title that in 2005 he starred successfully Fernando Tejero, but what happened in those final minutes of Madrid-Juventus on April 11, 2018 would have been enough for another film script.
