Shane Long Misses 'One Of The Easiest Chances In Premier League History'
Shane Long has had an interesting week.
On Tuesday, the Irish striker scored the quickest goal in Premier League history. He netted against Watford in 7.69 seconds.
Today, however, he's produced one of the misses of the season.
With the game level, Long failed to hit the back of the net from just a few yards out as he struck the post.
Long's first-half miss proved costly as Southampton drew 3-3 with Bournemouth, and his sitter was the talk of social media. Here's some reaction from Twitter:
Shane Long has scored and also missed one of the easiest chances in Premier League history.

Shane Long with a miss of the season contender for Southampton. Artur Boruc denied him, then the ball came back to him four yards out but he somehow hit the post. What a miss.
It's all going on. Turn on @CNBC now #SaintsFC 1-1 #AFCB #SOUBOU
