Emile Heskey is back to his best! Newcastle Jets striker misses sitter v Central Coast Mariners [Vine]
Poor Emile Heskey!
The former Aston Villa, Liverpool and England centre-forward has courted attention on Saturday after missing a sitter in the A-League.
Playing for his club, the NEwcasyle Jets, Heskey blew a ridiculously simple chance when he was presented with a goal scoring opportunity just outside the six yard box against the Central Coast Mariners.
Despite having the goal at his mercy and with no defenders in sight threatening to clip the ball off his toes, Heskey showed off appalling technique to blaze a shot over the Mariners bar.
For the record, the Newcastle Jets lost the game 3-0.
Watch Emile Heskey’s horror miss below.
