Worst. Penalty. EVER! Ilombe Mboyo (Gent) v Waasland-Beveren

Belgium football was on fire at the weekend.

Standard Liege scored six against Charleroi on Friday night, Anderlecht stuck five past Mons on Saturday, while Club Brugge bagged seven (!) away at Beerschot on Sunday.

Yet not everyone had a good time in front of goal in the Jupiler League. Case in point: Gent striker, Ilombe Mboyo.

Mboyo is fast becoming the biggest joke of last weekend following his unbelievably bad penalty against Waasland-Beveren on Saturday.

The 25-year-old striker had the opportunity to make the scores 1-1 in the 15th minute when he faced a spot-kick, however the forward became the flop of the week as he executed a pathetic penalty that bobbled wide at a snail’s pace.

Gent went on to lose the match 2-nil, but after the game Mboyo somewhat redeemed himself with an act of brave behaviour.

After showering and suiting up, Mboyo walked back out onto the pitch to face a group of angry Gent supporters who had stayed in the ground after the defeat. Mboyo told his fans:

I am the club captain. I want respect. I play all the time at 100%. I missed a penalty but it happens. I did not mean to. I wanted to score.
