Watch: Dodô with one of the worst penalty misses you’ll ever see

Jack O'Toole

Dodô take a bow…. or at least take a proper run up.

The Brazilian midfielder had one of the worst penalty misses you will have ever seen in Giresunspor’s 2-1 loss at home to Fenerbahce in the quarter final of the Turkish Cup.

With his side trailing 1-0 in the second-half, the Brazilian midfielder comically trotted towards the ball before leaning back and curling his half-hearted strike into the advertising boards.

The goal would have ultimately earned his side a home draw heading into the second leg at the Şükrü Saracoğlu Stadium, but instead, his miss goes into the pantheon of all-time great penalty misses.

Notable nominations include Simone Zaza’s miss against Germany in the quarter-final of the Euro 2016, Robert Pires’ and Thierry Henry’s hatchet job against Manchester City, David Beckham’s miss against Turkey and Robert Baggio’s skied shot against Brazil.

Take a lap Dodô. In fact, take two. That was brutal.
