Even one of the best footballers in the world can sometimes look hilariously average.
On Wednesday night, Paris Saint-Germain traveled to Dijon FCO for a Coupe de France quarter-finals match and during the 6-1 route, Kylian Mbappé had one of the worst misses you’ll ever see.

When Julian Draxler played a pass across the box to a wide-open Mbappé, he never imagined in his wildest dreams that the Frenchman would blast his shot over the cross-bar from two yards out.
It’s almost like the 21-year-old star got mixed up in whether he wanted to pass a shot into the back of the net or chip the keeper. Whatever it was, it didn’t work and Mbappé had to settle with one goal against Dijon and not a brace.
As bad as the miss was, it’s still not the worst in PSG history. That honor still belongs to Eric Maxim Choupo-Mouting.
“Mbappe's reaction says it all.” 😳
