Goals are always at a premium in soccer matches so it’s essential to convert on easy opportunities. And opportunities don’t get any easier than the one presented to Kaiserslautern’s Philipp Hofmann in the Bundesliga.
Alas, things went sideways quickly.
Oh boy. That miss is going to be difficult to live down. It’s a shot most six-year-olds would have no problem hammering home. The good-natured ribbing will sting a little less because Kaiserslautern went on to win 1-0.
