I think it's fair to say it's not as easy as it looks. Perfecting a simple kick from just 12 yards out, whilst a monstrous keeper stands in your way, isn't as simple as just putting your laces through it.
Some of the most memorable names down the years have failed time after time from the spot, whilst left-backs, centre-midfielders and even goalkeepers have had to take on responsibility, as the attackers falter under the pressure.
Some players, however, have perfected the art of bamboozling the keeper and effortlessly slotting the ball home without breaking a sweat.
Smashing the side netting, rather than just half placing the ball a metre to the right is an unteachable skill, and it takes many out of hours work on the training ground to perfect.
From the legendary former professionals such as Alan Shearer and Matt Le Tissier, to the modern greats in Harry Kane and Cristiano Ronaldo - there are many names to choose from. At the same time, it's easy to overlook the exceptional current efforts from James Milner and the forgotten men down the years like Rickie Lambert.
