Choupo-Moting Takes Home The Award For Worst Miss Of All Time
Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting has put his name ahead for the worst miss of all time after missing an absolute sitter.
During Paris Saint-Germain’s clash against Strasbourg at the Parc des Princes, the 30-year-old Cameroon international was handed the perfect opportunity to score a brace in the first half.
Following on from his opener in the 13th minute, Dani Alves passed the ball into the path of Christopher Nkunku, who beat Strasbourg ‘keeper Matz Sels with a lofted ball that found its way to Choupo-Moting.
The former Stoke City and Schalke player then messed up the simplest of chances when it came to smashing the ball into the back of the net.
Check it out below.
There have been complete shockers in the past, but this one takes things to a whole new level of ridiculous.
What’s worse is the fact that Choupo-Moting’s ‘shot’ stopped Nkunku from scoring, especially as it was heading into the back of the net anyway.
There’s no doubt that the PSG player will regret that moment, mainly for how Strasbourg picked up a draw against the reigning Ligue 1 champions.
Oh, did we forget to mention that PSG could have sealed the title with a win against Strasbourg? If we didn’t, then now is the time to mention that!
Nuno da Costa equalised for Strasbourg in the 26th minute before Thierry Laurey’s side went into half-time with the lead thanks to Anthony Gonçalves.
Thomas Tuchel’s men were able to salvage a point after Thilo Kehrer added his name to the scoresheet in the second half.
PSG are 20 points clear at the top of Ligue 1 — no, you didn’t read that wrong — ahead of second-placed Lille with a match in hand.
Was it the miss of the century?
