Morto for you! Check out Neymar’s shocking penalty miss from last night

Barcelona's Neymar was left with egg on his face last night - after a truly awful penalty miss.

The Brazilian footballer stepped up to take the spot kick during his side’s Copa del Rey semifinal first-leg game against Valencia.

Hitting the post can happen to the best penalty-takers at time - but hitting it after a ridiculously long build-up is cring-inducing.

Oh dear.

If you are struggling with your spot-kicks you should probably consider keeping it simple - not trying to psych out the ‘keeper with a NINE SECOND delay.

Luckily for Neymar his side went on to win the game 7-0 with Lionel Messi scoring a hat-trick and Luis Suarez going one better.
