Hugely gifted, Kylian Mbappé frequently astounds admirers with his brilliance.
The attacker for Paris Saint-Germain also showed that he could astound spectators with his misses.
In the Ligue 1 match between PSG and AC Ajaccio, Mbappé scored a stunning goal but also squandered a clear-cut opportunity to score.
The Frenchman opened the scoring for the visitors in the 24th minute of the game when he ran onto a Lionel Messi through ball and produced a clinical finish to find the back of the net.
Many may have been excused for believing that Mbappé could quickly recreate his form in front of goal after the ease with which he scored.
Achraf Hakimi tore down the field in the game’s 37th minute and squared the ball to Mbappé for the goal. Despite having an open goal to score in, the Frenchman managed to rocket the ball over the crossbar.
Naturally, social media was left astonished by the miss, with many describing it as the miss of the year.
“Mbappe just missed the biggest scoring chance I have seen this season in football ♂️♂️”
“Mbappe, you French Richarlison. How did he miss?”
