We know that YouTube is positively awash with clips pertaining to be the “worst open-goal miss ever” but this next example really is something extra special.
Precise details are a little scarce, but the miss in question came during a recent encounter in the Belgrade Zone League, which makes up part of the regional fourth-tier of the Serbian football pyramid.
It also features an unnamed forward dribbling the ball to within half-a-yard of a completely vacated goalmouth with nobody else in sight, only to still somehow send his shot over the crossbar.
We told you it was bad. Utterly risible, scarcely believable and truly outstanding, all at the same time.
You know, if somebody had given him 100 attempts to put the ball over the bar from that position, he’d have gone and scored every single time.
