Yakubu Aiyegbeni's 66th minute miss in their match against South Korea was the biggest goal miss of the World Cup.
With Nigeria trailing 2-1 in a must-win match for the Super Eagles, Yakubu was set up with an absolute perfect opportunity right in front of goal.
The South Korean goalkeeper was already sprawling on the field as he made a vain effort to intercept the cross.
The ball found Yakubu right in front of the empty net and he tried to flick the ball and shockingly missed the easy score as he put the ball wide from less than one metre from goal line.
After Yakubu's shameful miss, the Oxford English Dictionary has changed his name into a new word, which means "To utterly squander once-in-a-lifetime opportunities especially one that will cause pain to millions of people; or to fail awfully at a very easy and uncomplicated assignment."
So now sentences will use his name to express failure. Like, "He needed to just go there and talk to her, but he Yakubu'ed the chance."
