FA President loses shootout to 13 year old boy
Prince William might be in the fair-off land of the Solomon Islands, but he’s still flying the flag for English football – by losing a penalty shootout to a 13-year-old boy.
September 18th, 2012
The next in line to the throne, and president of the Football Association, is currently dodging the paparazzi and spreading good will and happiness across the Commonwealth and stopped off in the Solomon Islands as part of his and Kate’s Royal Tour.
And when a young goalkeeper challenged Britain’s second-in-line to the throne to beat him from the spot, William responded in the only way that an Englishman on soil knows – with a series of misses.
The 30-year-old tucked his first spot-kick away, before the young goalie saved his next two efforts.
Goalkeeper Philemon Fatai, gracious in victory, proclaimed: “He’s good – but not as good as me.”
