points for penalty wins

Post by Werder_fan » Fri Feb 08, 2008 3:44 pm

I wonder why no points are given for a win after penalties? :? This is also a WIN ,it would be realistic if the quallified for the next round(in a friendly cup and also in the SP cup) team gets respectively 2 and 4 points!After all,many tournaments,in real life too,are desided after panalties.

No points are given because those games end in a draw, and draws don't give managers any points. If they hadn't ended drawn, we wouldn't have needed shootouts.
Wikipedia wrote:Goals scored during the shootout are not included in the final score, nor are they added to the goalscoring records of the players involved. Strictly speaking, kicks from the penalty mark do not result in a match winner. The match remains a draw and the result of the kicks is merely used to select a winner to progress to the next stage of the tournament (or win it in the case of the final). However, in popular usage a team is often said to have "won on penalties", and such matches have their result recorded as (for example): "Team A 2–2 Team B a.e.t, Team B won 5–4 on penalties".
