Choosing what constitutes a great miss in football can be tricky. It happens so often around the globe that the "worst list compilations", with this one top of the pops, usually remain unaffected. However Zestafoni's Boti Demel delivered a corker against Merani Martvili during a Georgian match.

Demel's gift is how comically he fails to score from one yard out. To cut him a slither of sympathy, the ball bounces at an awkward height and he doesn't connect cleanly, but the miss is made greater by his effort ricocheting off the post only for the ball to bounce back off of him for a goal kick, doubling the humiliation.

It's a short but sweet video, and worth repeat viewings.
