Penalty kicks in final tournaments

Who thinks the game should go on till a team wins by a goal difference. Like the new silver ball format of the game with no penalty kicks when there's a draw.

30 mins of extra time and penalties for me. No silver/golden goals, that's so sucky sucky.

I think it's a great end to any game. I was gutted in world cup 94, but it's the fairest way to end it.

don't they have a different system in the US where its a 1 on 1 situation?

the outfield player has 20 seconds from the centre spot to take on the keeper one on one...

i think that would be farely interesting, and would give both players a chance to demonstrate their skill, after all penalties, from the keepers's point of view is mainly luck!

after a victory in penalties i don't think it is the most appropriate time for me to praise the method :p

would like to see that US thing getting tested on a under-20 competition or so..

Yes I have seen that before, looks kind of weird since I am not used to it. There is a greater chance of missing I feel since its basically a 1 on 1. The conventional form favours the shooter.

why not just let them play mini 15 minutes periods till there's a winner... aren't these athletes strong enough to do it?

But who knows how long that could go on! Matches need to be brought to an end for many a reason; penalties seem to be the ideal way. :)

but why not!! its still more exciting that penalty kicks and people don't feel like getting screwed!!

They could remove 2 men per team to open up the game and make it more offensive, it wouldn't take long before a team wins over the other!
