(Video) Mike van der Hoorn sorts LFC out with horror miss, but it’s not the most embarrassing moment of Swans star’s career

Posted by

Swansea City defender Mike van der Hoorn had a glorious stoppage-time chance to earn his side a draw against Liverpool on Saturday.

But the 23-year-old inexplicably missed a sitter to allow Liverpool to keep all three points, instead of a share of the spoils.

Had Van der Hoorn scored, Liverpool would have been four points behind Premier League leaders Manchester City, but his two-point donation seriously strengthens the Reds’ title bid, which will gain further momentum if City fail to beat Tottenham Hotspur tomorrow.

Van der Hoorn’s big chance aside, Jurgen Klopp’s men thoroughly deserved their victory – their fifth in a row in all competitions.

Roberto Firmino cancelled out Leroy Fer’s opener early in the second half, before a James Milner penalty completed the turnaround on 84 minutes.

Anyway, back to Van der Hoorn. Sure, he must be totally embarrassed about missing that last-gasp chance.

However, he’s used to being embarrassed on the pitch and has done much, much worse.
