Supporter Narrowly Misses Out On Five Grand After Toni Kroos' Game-Winning Free-Kick Is Taken Inside The Box

Supporter Narrowly Misses Out On Five Grand After Toni Kroos' Game-Winning Free-Kick Is Taken Inside The Box

There is always an empirical truth: something either is so, or it isn't - just as this sorry supporter found out yesterday, after his World Cup bet missed by a matter of inches.

It's a bet that you feel the gambling company should just pay out given the tiny margins in which their customer missed out on.

He laid down a fiver: Mexico to beat South Korea 2-1 at 9/1, Romelu Lukaku to score a brace in Belgium's clash against Panama at 6/1, and German midfielder Toni Kroos to score from outside the box at 14/1.

Well, the first two came through, but Kroos netting from a long-range effort didn't happen, simply because the free-kick he scored late on against Sweden was rolled to Marco Reus, before the attacker stopped the ball and Kross let fly, burying the ball into the top corner and sending Germany back on course for a place in the knockout stages of the World Cup.

And so, it didn't happen. A five pound bet that could've earned £5,250 didn't come off in the end.

But he's got the support of plenty users on social media. Some even calling for the betting company to pay the guy purely for getting close desperately close.

Others weren't so charitable.

Should he be paid? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section.
