Fulham striker Aleksandar Mitrovic submitted his contender for the worst cross of all-time during his side’s defeat to Wolves on Friday night.

The Serbian international proved exactly why he’s usually the one getting on the end of crosses, opposed to delivering them, by shanking the ball out of play, a waste of a semi-promising attack for Fulham.

Mitrovic wouldn’t count crossing as one of his major strengths, but you’d expect a professional footballer, and one of his standard, to do better than this…
