Imagine this, you've successfully dribbled past your opponent's defenders and you are in a prime position to shoot. Your player enters the penalty area and is bracing for the shot, suddenly a wild tackle comes in and he is brought down.

After rage mode has been controlled somewhat, you realise you have a penalty kick to take. You are trying to decide whom to pick to be the specialist. Sportskeeda helps make your job easier by giving you the Top 5 Penalty Takers in FIFA 18.

5. Paul Verhaegh (Wolfsburg)

The Dutch right-back has been given an overall rating of 77 and has a shooting rating of 51. Although it does not seem like a lot, his penalties stat is as high as 90 and that has helped pull up his shooting score to 51.

All his other stats are fairly low including Positioning, Finishing, Shot Power, Long Shots and Volleys. In real life, Verhaegh is one of the best penalty takers and was even part of the 2014 Dutch World Cup squad. He has an almost 100% record of scoring from penalty kicks. This puts him at number five on our list.
