Qatari player misses open goal from a yard!

Wednesday, November 17, 2010

A Qatari striker has joined the ranks of football's greatest blunders when he managed to miss an open goal from one yard out.

In extra time of the Asian Games' quarterfinal match between Qatar and Uzbekistan, Fahad Khalfan seemed to have a bountiful amount of luck on his side after a blunder by Uzbek goalkeeper Timur Juraev put him clean through on goal.

There was no a single player between the striker and the back of the net that you would put your house on him to score a goal.

But that wasn't the case as the 18-year-old Al-Rayyan forward scuffed his left foot shot against the post when it looked far easier to score.

To make matters worse, Uzbekistan went on to win the match 1-0 sending the defending champions crashing out of the tournament.
