Video: African striker takes worst penalty of 2013 contender

Next Story

We've seen some dreadful penalties over the past few months - Neymar and Ilombe Mboyo spring immediately to mind - but few have confused us more than an effort by Gornik Zabrze striker Prejuce Nakoulma against Lech Poznan.

While Nakoulma follows the lead of Neymar and Mboyo by missing the target by some distance, the Burkina Faso international baffles with the manner in which he contrives to squirt the ball wide of the post.

Aiming to hammer the ball in with his trusted right boot, Nakoulma somehow manages to get it all wrong and, we think, divert his strike onto his left foot and fire it towards an unsuspecting camera operator.

Watch the penalty in the video above...
