The miss to end all misses: Brazilian striker’s triple miss

What’s the collective noun for sitters?

A three-piece suite of sitters, maybe? Anyway, this is Gremio striker Jonas missing three incredible gilt-edged chances to score against Colombian outfit Boyaca Chico in the Copa Libertadores. Firstly, he found himself one-on-one with goalkeeper but bottled it and scuffed his shot straight at the keeper. There was worse to follow.

It looked like it might be Jonas’ day after all when the ball rebounded kindly to his feet with the goalkeeper stranded behind him on the floor. With the whole goal to shoot at, Jonas somehow hit the post. Unperturbed, he collected the ball once again and coolly rounded the keeper only to fire his shot across the goal from almost standing on the goal-line!
