Martín Palermo, 3 penalties

Martín Palermo holds all kinds of goalscoring records for Boca Juniors, however he is probably most famous outside Argentina for getting himself in the Guinness book of records for being the only player to have missed 3 penalties in the same game at international level. He managed this feat in a 3-0 defeat to Colombia in the Copa América 1999.
