Penalty Shoot-out (association Football)
A penalty shoot-out, referred to as kicks from the penalty mark in the Laws of the Game, is a method used in association football (soccer) to decide which team progresses to the next stage of a tournament (or wins the tournament) following a tied game. Kicks during a shoot-out are governed by different laws from a penalty kick, which is part of normal play during a match, but shoot-out kicks do follow a similar procedure and are popularly referred to as "penalties" or "PKs".
