Panenka penalty was premeditated

Sergio Ramos admitted that the chipped penalty that gave Spain the initiative in their 4-2 penalty shoot-out win over Portugal in the Euro 2012 semifinals had been planned in advance.
"I'd planned it in advance, I won't lie," he told reporters after receiving the man-of-the-match award.
The Real Madrid man beat Portugal goalkeeper Rui Patricio with a 'Panenka' penalty to put Spain 3-2 ahead and after Bruno Alves hit the crossbar with his attempt, Cesc Fabregas swept Spain into Sunday's final in Kiev.
