Liverpool midfielder Jonjo Shelvey’s outrageous miss (England U21 4-0 Sweden U21)
England under 21 midfielder Jonjo Shelvey provided the comedy highlight of last night’s 4-0 win against Sweden with this unfortunate miss.
The Liverpool star was practically standing on the goal-line when he was handed the simple task of nodding home a Tom Ince cross. Alas, he somehow managed to put his header wide when it seemed easier to score.
In his defence, the ball and his head were both shiny, slippery surfaces at a roan-drenched Banks’ Stadium in Walsall. It must have been tricky to get a decent contact.
