Holy crap. This miss, by teenage Qatar forward Fahad Khalfan during his side’s Asian Games quarter-final against Uzbekistan, has to be a strong contender for the worst miss by a professional footballer I’ve ever seen. Even worse, the score was 0-0 at the time, and Uzbekistan went on to win 1-0. Ouch.

In Fahad’s defence, he is left-footed. Okay, you’re right: there is no defence for that.
