Miller-Dicks has done scholarly research on soccer penalties.
“Evaluating Alphonso Davies’s penalty depends a lot on how he had been practising penalty kicks,” Miller-Dicks said in an e-mail.
That’s difficult to know because Davies hasn’t spoken publicly since he missed that shot. Maybe he had been practising penalties with new attention. Maybe he hadn’t. And if he had, who’s to say what precise way he practised, or under what conditions?"
