Watch ‘worst miss of all time’ as midfielder fails to score open goal from one yard out in Belgian top flight
Sept. 12, 2020
Aster Vranckx will live forever in footballing folklore after what some are branding the ‘worst miss of all time’ on Saturday.
The 17-year-old Belgian midfielder somehow failed to convert an open goal from one yard out and the video has subsequently gone viral around the world.
The move started with a run down the left and a cross being floated into the middle of the penalty area.
A poor defensive clearance saw it rocket vertically up into the air.
An attacker followed up with a half-volley which hit the bar.
This left the ball falling to Vranckx in front of an open goal.
His initial chest control was promising, however he then fell over the ball from a yard out and dragged it wide.
The game did not take place at a poor level, either.
Vranckx was playing for KV Mechelen against KV Oostende and the Belgian top flight.
To make matters worse, the game ended up finishing 1-0 to the away side who scored an injury time winner.
