Social media tears into Andrej Kramaric following penalty vs Liverpool

Social media have this evening reacted in typically brutal fashion following Andrej Kramaric’s shocking first-half penalty for Hoffenheim versus Liverpool.

Situation

Liverpool travelled to Bundesliga outfit Hoffenheim this evening for the first-leg of their Champions League qualifying matchup, with Jurgen Klopp’s side desperate for an advantage to take back to Merseyside.

However, it was nearly the worst start imaginable for the Reds, with defender Dejan Lovren having tripped former Arsenal winger Serge Gnabry inside the box after 10 minutes.

The referee immediately pointed to the spot, with the home side handed the ideal opportunity to make their early dominance count.

Shocker

However, this turned out to be far from the case, with former Leicester City striker Andrej Kramaric the man responsible for one of the worst penalties you are ever likely to witness.

The Croatian stepped up to the ball looking completely bereft of confidence, before placing the weakest of efforts straight down the middle at the perfect height for Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet.

Reaction

It was a truly dreadful spot-kick, and Twitter reacted accordingly:
