Jasper Cillessen is not known as a penalty taker, but he succeeded on Friday evening during the match between RKC Waalwijk and NEC. Bad luck for the goalkeeper: The penalty kick was allowed to be taken again and ended up behind the goalkeeper.
RKC took an early lead against NEC through David Min, and then substitute Michel Kramer was awarded a penalty ten minutes later after a duel with Philipp Sandler. Dario van den Buijs looked into the right corner, but found Cillessen en route to make it 2-0. However, VAR informed Manchot that some players closed the goal too early and so RKC had a second chance from eleven metres.
Van den Buijs believed it and gave the second chance to Maine, who overtook Cillessen from eleven metres. A painful decision for the NEC goalkeeper, as he had never stopped a penalty kick in the Netherlands before. As a goalkeeper for Barcelona, Valencia and Orange (in Wales), the players missed seeing Cillessen face to face, but that did not happen in the Netherlands.
As an NEC goalkeeper, Cillessen made fifteen passes from eleven metres, excluding penalties. As Ajax's goalkeeper, Cillessen was able to smile once, in the European away match against Jablonec, as the opposition hit the post. In the remainder of his Ajax career, he was beaten eleven times from eleven metres.
