Oh, no! For once, the pitch really must be blamed for a horror miss... 🙈 https://t.co/IBZkPRNdFj2016-8-1 07:32:17
France claimed the Women's Euro U19 trophy with a 2-1 win over Spain on Friday, but the standout moment came in added time, as Nahikari Garcia spurned a glorious chance to grab a late equaliser when she missed an almost-open goal.
The Spain forward had already failed to convert a penalty earlier in the match, and her evening got worse still when she somehow lifted the ball over the crossbar just six yards from goal.
Torrential rain in Senec, Slovakia, left the pitch severely waterlogged, and while that certainly didn't help Garcia, the miss was an extraordinary one.
