Gervinho produces horror miss

You just have to admire Gervinho. He doesn't really know whether he's coming or going, but he doesn't stop trying, does he?

Arguably, that's a pretty harsh statement as he's actually been on fire since leaving Arsenal for Serie A giants AS Roma. He's been full of goals, full of skill and full of running (obviously). 

What was he thinking? 

However, as he starred for the Ivory Coast against Sierra Leone yesterday, he reminded us all of just what he's capable of...and it was frightening. 

With his side cruising at 5-1, he used his pace to get in on goal and, as he took on his opponent, he set himself up for a strike, but the ball ultimately ended up in row Z as it sailed over the bar. 

It was another moment of *genius* from the former Arsenal man. It must be noted, however, that he managed to get himself on the scoresheet in the comfortable victory, but it's quite extraordinary that he didn't double his tally.
