Can he kick it, no he can’t: Football’s worst misses.

11 Dec

We’ve all had the water cooler moments discussing the Fernando Torres miss, while fondly pondering as to whether it was worse than Ronnie Rosenthals shocker for Liverpool in the 90’s.

The following misses rival these, and in some cases surpass them for just the sheer hilarity of their nature.

Rocky Baptiste

A man with a name that you’d  likely pay for. Unfortunately the non-league legend from Harrow Borough failed to live up to his name, as he blasted wide the easiest of tap ins against fellow non-leaguer’s, Waltham Abbey.

Baptiste later made amends by firing in from all of 35 yards.

Fahad Khalfan

Khalfan, a teen international for Qatar, will not want to remember his time against Uzbekistan. Following a poor mistake by the Uzbeki goalkeeper, Khalfan smartly skirted in only to stab his shot against the far post with the goal at his mercy.

Unfortunately for the Qatari’s,  this will be many people’s  first exposure of the play of the hosts of the 2022  Football World Cup. Not exactly the kind of exposure you want when pining to be taken seriously.

David Villa

Fortunately for most of us, poor marksmanship can afflict even the very best player. Here Barcelona striker David Villa misses the easiest of sitters.

Unfortunately though, this man makes more money in a month, than most of us make in a decade.

Kei Kamara

Major League Soccer is on a campaign to be establish itself as one of the world’s foremost professional football leagues. Unfortunately no one seemed to inform Kei Kamara of the Kansas City Wizards.

Emile Heskey, given the amount of time he spends falling on his arse, could probably lend Kamara a sympathetic ear or two.
