Turkish Player Misses Wide Open Soccer Goal from Point Blank Range

Turkey beat Kosovo 6-1 earlier today¬†in an international friendly, and the victory would’ve been even more lopsided if this wide open goal had been converted.

Additionally, the Turkish player¬†would’ve needed to get his shot off quicker to make sure to get it past the trailing Kosovo defender, so the “Epic Fail” tagline in the video’s title should probably just read “mild fail”.
