Manchester City winger Raheem Sterling sent a penalty sailing over the bar during a dramatic shootout against Leicester City.
Pep Guardiola’s men ultimately managed to secure their spot in the Carabao Cup semi-finals with a 3-1 win on penalties, after the game finished 1-1 in normal time.
Kevin De Bruyne opened the scoring at the King Power Stadium on his return to the City starting line-up following injury, but Marc Albrighton equalised late on with a brilliant volley which took the game into spot-kicks.
Both teams managed to score their first penalties, but Sterling squandered his chance from 12-yards, shockingly trying a Panenka lob which cleared the crossbar and set up a nervy finale.
Fortunately for the Englishman, Leicester missed their next three penalties, while City dispatched two in a row to book their spot in the next round.
