What is FIFA's official name for a penalty shootout?
Accordng to Wiki, the official term is a "penalty shoot-out" not "penalty shootout" (not much of a major difference but there it is). It's also referred to as kicks from the penalty mark.I always refer to them as "penalty kicks".http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Penalty_shoot-out_(association_football)
Actually, the official FIFA term (according to FIFA) is "kicks from the penalty mark." Good one though. lol
