Manchester City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan has seen the funny side of his horrendous penalty miss during Sunday’s important Premier League match against Liverpool.
Man City eventually ran out 4-1 winners as they continue in their title charge, however, whilst the game was still at 0-0, midfielder Gundogan was tasked with converting a spot-kick.
In an eager attempt to gift his side the lead, the German blasted the ball way above Alisson’s head and well over the bar.
Thankfully, a Phil Foden masterclass helped secure Man City with all three-points meaning Gundogan’s early gaff became irrelevant.
Taking to his social media after the match, the midfielder gave a brilliant response to a moment which coincided with the NFL’s 55th Super Bowl which took place early on Sunday morning.
“When they tell you it’s Super Bowl [weekend] and a Field Goal is worth 3 points…” Gundogan wrote.
