Penalty shoot -outs are an unfair way of deciding football matches.
A study says Team kicking first kick win match 60% of times.
The team going second is usually more stressed.
Penalty shoot are always more luck then skills.
Psychological pressure of losing the coin toss and going second is unfair.
In an intense game where small percentage can swing a match, leaving so much to chance is unjustifiable.
Athletes have been trained for these kinds of stressed situations.
Athletes have been paid in millions to perform at the highest level with their utmost abilities.
Sport is mix of luck and talent so taking those elements from the football will make this game boring.
In Penalty shootouts first team definitely has psychological advantage over second team so this system can be replaced by more balanced tie break system as in tennis.

Point: all kinds of sports are literally made for entertainment penalty shootouts are way more interesting than the main game.and of course playing first or second doesnt make much of a change as the players are proffessionals who know how to handle pressure

Point: ACCORDING TO ME PENALTY SHOTS ARE UNFAIR AS A GOAL KEEPER WORK IS TO PROTECT GOAL AND PROTECTING GOAL FROM VERY SHORT DISTANCE IS JUST UNDESIRABLE AND THAT WHEN THERE IS AN EXCELLENT KICKER STANDING OVER THERE TO DO GOALS.SO WHAT I THINK IS THAT PENALTY SHOTS ARE UNFAIR
