Sunday League legend manages to miss open goal from a yard out

Published Add your comment

Seasoned veterans of online football content are now used to hearing the claim: 'This is the worst miss you will ever see'. Well GiveMeSport has finally managed to uncover a video which they think is easily worthy of that lofty claim.

It comes from Toolstation Northern Counties East Football League Division One side AFC Mansfield, who have Chris Haslam to thank for producing one of the most embarrassing mishaps in the penalty area of all time.

Haslam had the goal at his mercy after sauntering in the six yard box after a horrible mistake from the opposition goalkeeper. His approach looked calm and the Sunday League star even dropped a shoulder to put the one covering defender guarding an empty net on his backside, but still couldn't score from quite literally a yard out.

Try living that one down

The reaction of the Mansfield number nine is just fantastic, the classic hands on hips stance in utter disbelief with a shot that was so bad we can't even throw the Sunday League card in as any kind of defence.

Halsam will likely never live this miss down, but that's not going to stop us having a good laugh at his expense for some time to come.
