VIDEO: The worst open-goal miss you'll see today

It will take a while for Neil Benjamin of W Connection FC to live this down.

OVER THE YEARS, football has had its fair share of horror misses, from Ronnie Rosenthal to Ryan Giggs.

You can now add W Connection FC’s Neil Benjamin to that list, after he failed to take advantage of an open goal against Houston Dynamo.

His blushes may have been partially spared had his side gone to win, but unfortunately for him, the game ended 0-0.
