Never be too sure of yourself!


Football's ultimate miss a web sensation

There's nothing quite like running into an open goal and slamming it into the net from barely a yard out - that is, unless you miss from dead in front.
What could make it worse is when that miss has been caught on camera, and becomes a viral web sensation.





The player, who was taking part in a local league match in Brazil, appeared to have done all the hard work by latching onto a perfect long pass and cleverly playing the ball past the keeper.
The ball was speeding towards the goal already, but the striker wanted to emphasise his skill by running it up to the empty goal and blasting it in.
That's what his plan was, at any rate - but what happened next truly beggars belief.
