Will Smith Might Be Worse Than James May at Taking Penalties

And you thought James May was bad. Will Smith makes the Top Gear co-star look positively like a Messi-incarnate as he mishits the ball hopelessly in an attempted penalty kick against Manchester United’s former goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar at a promotion event before the 2013 Champions League Final at Webley Park.

He was in town promoting his new sci-fi blockbuster film, After Earth, which he also stars in with his son Jaden.

Jaden himself had a penalty attempt, and was actually able to score. I wouldn’t take it as a sign of potential footballing talent, though, as goalie van der Sar was being physically held back by father Will. Hey, they need an advantage somehow. Will still would have missed it though.
