It took Vissel Kobe 25 seasons to win their first trophy.

The second one took just 90 minutes — and a penalty shootout that will, for better or for worse, go down in Saitama Stadium history.

After a 3-3 draw against Yokohama F. Marinos in Saturday's Fuji Xerox Super Cup, Kobe triumphed 3-2 in penalty kicks, but only after an astounding nine straight players missed from the spot following two sets of successful conversions.
