Twitter reacts to the horror miss by Colombia striker Gutierrez v Ivory Coast [Tweets]
- June 19, 2014
Despite Colombia’s game against Ivory Coast being an open game with both teams willing to attack, it’s been surprisingly event free.
Well, almost. Colombia had a golden opportunity to break the deadlock only to be denied by the ineptitude of striker Teofilo Gutierrez.
The River Plate forward was given a chance to put his side in front after a jinking James Rodriguez run concluded with him having the goal at his mercy; unfortunately, he completely fluffed his lines and hit the ball wide.
There is a chance it may have been ruled out for offside but that didn’t spare him from some Twitter scorn.
Gutierrez pondering best side for his photo shoot for Golden Boot and whether to accept Degree sponsorship and…"Wait — I missed?"

That has happened a million times to me. Then again, i'm not playing at the World Cup. Probably why.
