Excuse us for being a bit late with this, but after reading Tim Vickery's always excellent South American football column on the BBC website, we thought we'd take a look at the miss of Ecuador Under-20 player Marlon de Jesus to see if it is as bad as he said.

As you can see — it is. The Spoiler is struggling to think of a worse miss. It's right in front of goal. The pitch makes a bowling green look like a cabbage patch and it's in the 88th minute of a crucial game that was 1-1 at the time.
