Kevin Kuranyi is the latest striker to commit theÂ egregious crime of failing to score when starring down an open goal.
TheÂ Dynamo Moscow forward had only one silver lining. His miss didn’t really matter as theÂ MuscovitesÂ won 2-nil regardless. Nevertheless he’ll surely get pasted when he walks into training on Monday morning.
With the match still goalless after 18 minutes a straight-forward, bog-standard, can-I-score?-yes-please! cross was threaded across the six yard box toÂ Kuranyi. For a striker of half his pedigree missing would have been unacceptable. Yet, like a true plonker, the German international managed to sky his shot over the bar when missing looked nigh on impossible.
