Christian Benteke is almost certainly a shoe-in for the miss of the season award following his extraordinary effort for Belgium against the Ivory Coast.

Aston Villa striker Benteke somehow missed the target from 10 yards out after Kevin Mirallas drew the goalkeeper in the Red Devils' 2-2 draw.

With the goal unguarded, Benteke lofted the ball over the bar and onto the running track.
