Chelsea goalkeeper kicked a PK into orbit

OH NO!

Oh no, Thibaut. The goal is down there. This isn’t a goal kick, fam!

He launched that one straight into orbit, and Chelsea fell to Arsenal 4-1 on penalty kicks in disappointing fashion.

Twitter, of course, had a field day with this one:

The roast proceeded:

Thibaut has taken successful penalty kicks before, and two years ago he even sunk one to win against PSG. But this time it didn’t go so well.

Luckily this was just a preseason game.
