Have you got a spare 13 minutes, 54 seconds this afternoon/evening/night/sometime?

If so, why not spend it watching the longest penalty shootout in recorded history — 26 rounds for a whopping 52 shots taken — which took place this week in the Czech Republic? FC Frystak and SK Batov are the competing sides from the Czech fifth division, and we’re not telling who won. You’ll have to watch the entirety of the video below to find out. Frystak are in blue, Batov are in white.

Unfortunately for the two sides — and the fans in attendance — they won’t be able to call their epic shootout a world record, officially, as the Czech fifth division isn’t actually a professional league.
