 Wilfried Zaha has received a lot of criticism after a very reprehensible penalty miss against Norwich.

This morning, Crystal Palace experienced a rather disappointing match on the field of Norwich. They were opened by Teemu Pukki in the first minute. After that, it was not until 63 minutes that Crystal Palace had an equalizer by Wilfried Zaha. 3 minutes later, the away team had a chance to take the lead when they were awarded a penalty.

 Zaha and the penalty missed eat blame.

Unfortunately, facing a great opportunity to score a double, Zaha missed his shot. His shot missed the post and was quite far from the goal. Crystal Place fans described it as the worst penalty kick they had ever seen.

The account, @reshkes2 sarcastically on Twitter, said “The Ivory Coast player is ‘taking lessons’ from [Eric] Bailly.”

Another user questioned how: “Zaha scored one of the goals of the season and then took the worst penalty I’ve ever seen.”

Speaking about Zaha’s 63rd-minute goal, coach Patrick Vieira said: ‘It was an unbelievable goal. It was Wilf’s best moment. But the way we played, we should have taken the three points. We are very disappointed because we had a chance to win.”

On Saturday, Palace will meet rivals Brentford in search of their first win since December.
