I guess it truly can happen to the best of them. I’ll admit I rarely watch soccer, but I’m still confident in saying this is one of the worst misses of all time. Could the net have been more open for Flamengo striker Deivid de Souza? You just don’t see players above the high school level miss shots like that.
What’s even worse is that Flamengo lost to Vasco da Gama by — you guessed it — one goal. As expected, Deivid has been ridiculed in European newspapers and all over the internet. The goal would have given Flamengo a 2-1 lead, but instead they lost 2-1. If you don’t feel badly for Deivid, you have no soul.
