Best penalty takers I ever saw were either John Wark, Matthew Le Tissier or Ray Stewart

Currently, I can't think of one outstanding taker. Many of them are excellent but have missed one or two

Alan Shearer has to be the most emphatic and reliable.
He who thinks too much about every step he takes will stay on one leg all his life.

Ballack buries the balls to net on Pk many many times, with lots of power and good placement, very unpredictable to save from. Other players, I don't know a whole lot nor saw them with pks but Ballack impressed me the most.

maybe totti because of the one against australia. so much pressure on him and he only came in about 10 minutes before. also Zidane because of todays penalty and the pressure. so it depneds on the consistancy and also the pressure part.

Im going to suprise u with this, and even though Im not his fan, I have to say C.Ronaldo, In the Euro 2004 tournament and now in the England game he came up big during the shootout and while the English stars of Gerrards caliber were missing he slot it home without any problem.
