Hart to Hart: Man City’s Joe Hart and comedian Kevin Hart face off in penalty shootout

Ice Cube and Kevin Hart are in England doing press for Ride Along 2 and that meant a visit to Manchester to Premier League title contender Manchester City. Kevin met up once again with the goalkeeper with the same last name, goalkeeper Joe Hart and had themselves a penalty shootout.

I say “again” because Kevin had visited Manchester City to face off with Joe before. Two years ago, Kevin got the better of Joe in their first shootout. Kevin’s form while taking penalties was a bit unconventional but it was a good shot into the lower left corner of the goal.

In part two, Kevin must’ve gotten some practice because he really improved his shooting. After going wide on his first attempt, Kevin tested Joe by forcing him to make a diving save. Then on the third attempt, Kevin went left again and left Joe standing still as he scored again.

If I was coaching Kevin on penalty kick taking, I would tell him to work on getting comfortable with shooting at the right side of the goal. He’s got the mechanics right, just need to utilize the entire goal. I’ll have him work on that to prep for part three.
