France’s U19 Women’s side were crowned European Champions after a 2-1 win against Spain in Slovakia. The game took an incredible four hours to complete after a long delay due to a thunderstorm, and the miserable weather definitely played a part in an incredible miss from the Spanish at the death.

The French were 2-1 up, courtesy of goals from Grace Geyoro and Marie-Antoinette Katoto, when the Spanish had a gilt-edged chance to equalise in injury-time. With the goal gaping after the French ‘keeper parried a shot, Nahikari Garcíaat had the goal at her mercy.

However,  the Spanish captain, who had seen her spot-kick saved earlier on, somehow blasted over…

To be fair to Garcíaat, she did almost lose her footing on the water-logged pitch. But still!!

    That really is a shocker, I wouldn’t say she lost her footing rather she is trying to place it in the top right corner very nonchalantly. The best bit is the Spanish player on the edge of the box who dives on the floor after witnessing that travesty.

    Haha, well spotted Paul! That’s classic!
