Video: Willian Ribeiro guilty of incredible open-goal miss
Campinense star Willian Ribeiro rues extraordinary open goal miss in Brazilian match
Willian Ribeiro was the talk of the terraces in Brazil this week after the Campinense star was guilty of an incredible open-goal miss in his side's recent 1-0 victory over Atletico-PB.
Breaking clear of the opposition defence from deep inside his own half, the South American - clean through on goal - rounded the outrushing goalkeeper on the edge of the box, leaving himself with the simplest of finishes into an unguarded net.
However, Ribeiro's side-footed shot appeared to hit a divot no more than eight yards out, diverting the ball off course and wide of the post.
The player looked dismayed by the extraordinary slice of misfortune - probably because he knew he'd be on the receiving end of unwanted publicity - with the shocking open goal gaffe ready-made for any future football blooper shows or DVDs.
