A reason to believe your professional football career could still happen

On the same night that Luis Suarez scored four stunning goals for Liverpool, his compatriot Santiago Silva missed an absolute sitter for Lanus against Ponte Preta.

The 32-year-old forward has played for some of the biggest clubs in South America, as well as a brief stint at Fiorentina a few years back.

However, he’s unlikely to have produced a worse miss in his 15-year career than on Wednesday night, when Silva somehow shot wide from six-yards with the goal LITERALLY gaping. I'm not joking when I say you, or your mum, or your nan, could have scored this.

With the scores level at 0-0, a low cross-trickled across the goal and onto the foot of Silva.

But, rather than tap in with his weaker left foot, he attempted an elaborate outside of the right-foot finish that went horribly wrong.

Nicknamed ‘the tank’, Silva showed that not every striker from Uruguay possesses the ability of Suarez – some the exact opposite, in fact.

But don’t just take my word for it, watch the horror miss at the top of this story & believe that a professional football career could still be round the corner…
