WATCH: Is This The Worst Miss In Football History?
Over the years in football, there have been some truly horrendous misses.
Even world-class players like Kevin De Bruyne are guilty of missing sitters, as the Belgian proved against his former team Chelsea in the 3-1 defeat at the Etihad on Saturday.

Makedonikos Kozanis and Vatera locked horns in every football hipster's dream game in the fourth division of Greek football and Kozanis striker Thanasis Takidis had the perfect opportunity to score when the opposition goalkeeper raced out his area like a madman and gifted him the ball.
