Watch: One of the worst open goal misses you'll ever see

Lucas Melano of the Portland Timbers momentarily found himself in dreamland when presented with the easiest chance you'll ever see during MLS decision day last weekend.

His team, the current MLS champions, needed to beat Vancouver Whitecaps to claim a place in the 2016 play-offs.

The ball came off the post and headed toward Melano following a goalmouth scramble and all he had to do was direct it into the huge gaping net in front of him.

What a choke! Portland went on to lose the game 4-1 as their interest in this year's trophy hunt came to an end.

He's obviously been taking shooting lessions from Fernando Torres!
