Epic miss in Sweden will make Fernando Torres feel better

IF Elfsborg defeated Swedish Allsvenskan title contenders Helsingborg 3-2 at home on Wednesday evening, and they would have won 4-2 if it wasn't for this wayward shot from midfielder Nicklas Hult.

If he wasn't kicking himself enough after the Torres-esque punt, Swedish tabloid Aftonbladet reported that he was being watched by talent scouts from Porto and Marseille. FACEPALM!

When asked if his miss was worse than Torres' effort at Old Trafford, Hult said: "It must be his!" He's probably right, but Nando will undoubtedly be comforted that a fellow professional is equally incapable of finding an open net from close range.
