Video: Noah Hickey's worst open goal miss ever
The beautiful game of football is one of the most intense and passionate sport in the world; one which can start arguments and debates on any occasion. However, the game never ceases to amuse people with the light-hearted moments that occur on the pitch.
And open goal misses are one of the aspects that always generate a laugh for the fans. Players failing to find the back of the net with no one guarding the goal is something that has happened quite often and those situations hilarious situations are often etched in our memories forever.
But Noah Hickey’s miss near the goal line was an incident that baffled everyone and questions of whether the New Zealand international did it purposely were raised. After going past the goalkeeper and with nothing standing between him and the goal, the forward, for some inexplicable reason, decided against scoring and then came back again to pass it to his team mate Elrich who waywardly put it over the post.
It was a shocking miss and many doubted whether Hickey was involved in a betting scam or not. Watch the video below and decide for yourself.
