This horror double miss isn't even worthy of Thursday night on Channel Five.

Irtysh Pavlodar and Siroki Brijeg were duking it out for a spot in the competition billed as the Champions League's older, balder, fatter cousin -  the Europa League.

Pavlodar had already thrown away a 3-2 lead from the first leg of the preliminary qualifier having gone 2-0 down in the away game.

They had no reason to worry however - two of their most deadly attackers had the chance to take the game into extra-time and keep alive their chances of progressing through to the Europa League proper. 

Fans of the Kazakhstan club could only look on in disbelief as they somehow spurned two of clearest cut chances you are ever likely to see in the dying minutes of the game.

There's always next year boys...
