Former Stoke City striker Eric-Maxim Choupo-Moting was guilty of arguably the worst miss of all time last night during PSG’s draw with Strasbourg in Ligue 1.
The French giants were looking to clinch their sixth domestic title in seven seasons with a victory however Strasbourg spoiled the party picking up a well-earned 2-2 draw.
The Cameroonian striker had given his side the lead in the 13th minute of the game, however, Choupo-Moting massively fluffed his lines when handed the chance to grab a first-half brace.
Christopher Nkunku’s shot was destined for the goal before the former Stoke man astonishingly deflected it against the post and left it sitting on the goal line.
Many have described the miss as the worst of all time and looking at it in slow motion it’s almost impossible to envision how Choupo-Moting did not score.
Is this the worst miss of all time? 😂

“At the beginning, I thought that he(Nkunku) was maybe going to give me a pass,” he is quoted as saying by Get French Football News. “He shot, I thought that the defender was maybe going to take the ball and, after, I hesitated to take the ball, I asked myself if I was offside and everything went very quickly.
“I touched the ball but it went onto the post and that is a real shame because I think that Nkunku’s effort was going in on its own. I am sorry for that but we need to continue and keep our heads up.”
With such a hefty lead still at the top of the table, it’s difficult to imagine any scenario other than PSG again clinching the title however, Choupo-Moting’s miss will certainly go down in the history books as one of, if not, the worst of all time.
