People Can't Believe How Bad Carlton Cole's Performance Was On Soccer AM
Carlton Cole was capped seven times by England but you wouldn't know it judging by his performance on Soccer AM today.
The former West Ham striker was a guest on the Sky Sports' show this morning and stepped up to the mark for the 'Pro AM' segment.
Two football fans had to answer a series of questions and if they got it right, Cole had the chance to earn them some cash.
However, his technique finishing was very poor during the challenge - so bad in fact that you would have thought that actor Ralf Little was the professional footballer and not him.
Despite the below-par performance, Cole then had the chance to make amends and double the fans' money with a 'double or quits' penalty.
But the 36-year old bottled it big-time when he tried to be cute and chipped his Panenka over the bar. It meant the fans went away with nothing, and led to Cole getting plenty of stick on social media.
