Gary Lineker was left shocked today when he witnessed Erling Haaland miss a crucial chance for Manchester City against Manchester United from just yards out. The intense match between City and their rivals at the Etihad Stadium was crucial for City to secure a win and stay in the race with Liverpool at the top of the Premier League table.

Despite City’s strong start, Marcus Rashford scored a remarkable goal against the run of play for United after a long kick from Andre Onana. This goal allowed United to sit back and defend, making it difficult for City to break through their defense with a low block formation. However, City managed to turn things around with Phil Foden scoring twice and Erling Haaland sealing the win with an injury-time goal.

During the match, just before half-time, Erling Haaland missed a clear goal-scoring opportunity that left everyone stunned. Haaland, known for his clinical finishes and brilliant positioning, attempted to volley a ball from Phil Foden instead of simply nodding it in from a couple of yards out.

The missed opportunity garnered a strong reaction from Match of the Day host Gary Lineker, who took to Twitter to express his disbelief at the miss. He described it as potentially the worst miss he had ever seen at that level. Despite the miss, Haaland later redeemed himself by scoring a crucial goal towards the end of the match, showcasing his resilience and ability to bounce back from mistakes.

Haaland’s ability to brush off missed opportunities and focus on converting future chances highlights his exceptional talent and determination. His late goal in the game further emphasized why he is considered one of the most promising young strikers in football. Ultimately, Haaland’s performance against United showcased both his fallibility and his remarkable skill on the field.
