The Incredible Moment Ajax's Brian Bobbey Blazed A Penalty Out Of The Stadium

Ajax prospect Brian Brobbey came up with one of the worst penalty misses of all time last night when he blazed his spot-kick out of the stadium.

The 19-year-old was playing for Jong Ajax, the Amsterdam side's second team, in the 39th minute of a game against Almere City in the Dutch second division.


The striker fancied his chances from 12 yards when his team were awarded the penalty and he decided to go for power over placement.

It wasn't the best choice. Brobbey got his connection horribly wrong - his effort so bad that that the ball travelled up in the air and out of the Yanmar Stadion.

The ground is smaller than most but fan footage makes it even worse for Brobbey.

We've seen penalties smashed over the bar on many an occasion but to clear the stand behind the goal is quite something.

Genuinely, we're struggling to think of a worse penalty in the history of football. What's more, we're also keen on knowing exactly where the ball ended up - and whether it hit someone's car in the parking lot.

Jong Ajax would go on to lose 1-0 away at third-placed Almere City, with John Yeboah scoring the winner in the 75th minute for the hosts.

Penalty shambles aside, Brobbey has made waves with Ajax this term - making his Champions League debut and notching six goals in 16 games for the first-team in all competitions.

His contract with Ajax is up in the summer and he has already agreed to join Bundesliga side RB Leipzig when July 1 rolls around.
