One of the worst open-goal misses ever from Harkemase Boys' Dennis van Duinen

Stand by and thoroughly ready yourself for one of the worst open-goal misses you're ever likely to witness.

Down in the Dutch lower leagues, Harkemase Boys played host to rivals Capelle in a mid-table clash on Saturday afternoon.

Unfortunately for Harkemase's Dennis van Duinen, it's likely to be a match that lives long in the memory -- and not for the right reasons.

Having rounded the Capelle goalkeeper and faced with an absolutely vacant net, he proceeded to loft the ball clear over the crossbar from 10 yards out.

And, just to make matters several times worse, Harkemase went on to lose the game 3-2, with the winner coming in the 95th minute!

Football can be a cruel pursuit sometimes.
