This James Milner penalty was perfect

A boneheaded decision by Simon Mignolet to hold the ball in his own box for waaaay too long cost Liverpool a goal against Bordeaux. Down 1-0, Christian Benteke was drug down inside the box to give the Reds a penalty. James Milner stepped up and made no mistake.

You can't really take a penalty any better than that. Cool, calm, and collected he sent the goalkeeper the wrong way and picked out his spot. Liverpool pull level just before halftime.
