We've had some classic horror penalties this season (special shout out to Ilombe Mboyo) but this just might be the worst of the lot.

America Sao Paulo were trailing Votuporanguense in the Brazilian state championship on Sunday evening, when America star Pilo stepped up to take a spot-kick.

The penalty itself was more than a little controversial, but that ultimately didn't matter because Pilo made a right hash of it.

The America number 10 looked full of confidence, even doing that little tippy-tap run-up, but as he went to take a big swing, the penalty spot collapsed under him like a giant sink hole, Pilo air-shot and the ball was cleared.

It's terrible, it's funny. Watch in the video below..
