Still playing in the second tier, Ilija Sivonjic enjoyed a decent career in the Croatian top flight during his pomp, scoring a fair amount of goals for Inter Zapresic and Dinamo Zagreb between 2007 and 2010.

However, it was his inability to find the back of the net from less than a football’s width out which has seen Sivonjic attain Youtube immortality – specifically this absolute rotter of a miss against HNK Cibalia in 2009.

With a slightly mis-hit ball looping over the goalkeeper and destined to nestle in the back of the Cibalia net, Sivonjic came steaming in to apply the coup de grace…

Good grief.

Remind you of anybody?

    They have so many sponsors all over the kit that I thought this was La Libertadores Copa.
