BlogsSoccer Player Chokes ... Twice
Italian striker Emanuele Giaccherini blows it not once, but twice on an open net
It's not often that missing a goal is harder than making one, but that was exactly the case when Emanuele Giaccherini found himself facing down an open net in a recent game. Giaccherini, a forward for the Italian club A.C. Cesena, had the perfect opportunity to tie things up against Juventus, but somehow managed to miss not one, but two perfect shots. In truth, it wasn't the 25-year-old's ball handling that blew the spot. Just some serious bad luck. Still, the Italian striker's coach was in disbelief after the game, commenting, "It seemed impossible to miss, but he managed it!"
