Venezuela's Romulo Otero was left red faced after missing an open goal against Uruguay in the Copa America on Thursday.
Luckily for Otero, his failure to put the ball in the back of the empty net did not affect the final result, with his side holding on for a famous 1-0 win.
However, the attacking midfielder - on as a second-half substitute - will still be having nightmares after somehow missing the target in the dying minutes of the game at Lincoln Financial Field.
Uruguay, needing at least a draw to remain in the tournament, threw everyone forward for a late corner, with the ball then being cleared up field to the waiting Otero.
And yet with the whole of the goal to aim for, the 23-year-old rolled the ball past the post as he failed to add to his four goals for his country.
Either way, though, Venezuela's victory sees them top Group C.
