Miss Of The Season Contender: Emilson Sanchez Cribari (Napoli - FC Utrecht)

Last Thursday in the latest round of matches in the bloated Europa League, one of the standout contests saw FC Utrecht draw a 3-3 thriller with Italian powerhouse Napoli.

As the 91st minute ticked over, Napoli, who at one stage had been 3-1 down after just 35 minutes, were gunning for all three points.

Pressing for a winner, Napoli sprung an attack down the left hand side through their full-back Luigi Vitale. The number three broke in the inside left channel and, a yard from the byline, the defender picked out his Brazilian cohort Cribari unmarked and begging for the ball at the back post.

The delivery was picture-perfect. All Cribari needed to do was head the ball into the unguarded net from virtually on the goal-line. Scoring was undoubtedly easier than missing. Or so it should have been.

The story is too old to be commented.
