In the 67th minute of Liverpool’s Premier League tie against Newcastle, Roberto Firmino squandered a golden opportunity to score for the Reds.
Following a corner from the right flank, Firmino was left with enough time and space from Fabian Schar to steer the ball into a gaping net, but the Brazilian’s header went wide of the post.
Jurgen Klopp couldn’t believe his eyes as he threw up his arms ready to celebrate before the miss sunk in and he nearly stumbled over.
