Keisuke Honda has put himself right among the contenders for 'miss of the season' after the Japanese midfielder skied an effort over the bar from six yards out.
The Asian side were playing Ghana in a friendly and Honda later redeemed himself with a goal as Japan won 3-1.
Shinji Kagawa and Yasuhito Endo scored the other goals for Alberto Zaccheroni’s men, at the Saitama Stadium 2002.
