Reza, I think we agree on that. Essentially the penalties are in a way a different skillset than playing 11-11 football.
Even those who invented penalty shootouts would likely agree, as it's clearly an extreme tie-breaking measure. After all, playing 30 extra minutes is a lot, it's one third more than what these elite athletes are trained to endure, and, because of the kinds of competitions that have games in which draws are not allowed, they often imply an extra effort. Not to mention the heightened pressure. And there are even things like the away goal rule to make sure less games are decided by penalties. So they're trying to avoid the penalties.
However, surely you can't really think it does not matter whether it's 90 or 500 minutes. You already see it after 90 minutes, these guys are all cramped and nervous and rarely score. The penalties are the last resort. I also agree that a repeat match would be ideal, but that is hardly doable these days.
