Kei Kamara: Miss of the MLS Season

Kamara was a little bit too eager to knock this ball home. He tries to slid for the ball but misses and knocks the ball in with his hand. The Kansas City Wizards coaches, yes that was their name back then, were in disbelief and not really sure what exactly happened…

We’re only four or five games into the MLS season, but I don’t think there’ll be a worse open goal miss the rest of the MLS season.

In Saturday’s MLS match against LA Galaxy, Kansas City Wizards sriker Kei Kamara made history. He found himself right in front of an open net , managing to miss an open goal from less than six INCHES with no one near him.

Instead of netting the sitter in the middle of the goal after the ball hit the post, leaving keeper Donovan Ricketts stranded, Kamara took a wild swing, missed it completely, fell over and knocked the ball in with his ARM.

The stunned linesman immediately flagged, and Galaxy defender Gregg Berhalter admitted: “It was one of the most unbelievable things I’ve seen in soccer.

“It was unfortunate for Kamara but it was handball and credit the linesman for seeing it.”
