Harry Maguire missed for Manchester United is epic

To be fair, Harry Maguire is a center-back, not tasked with scoring.

To be unfair, let’s clown the all-time howler he just unleashed on the world.

The Manchester United defender had the mother of all Europa League tap-in opportunities against AC Milan on Thursday, and, well, it happened:

Still images do him even less service:

Maguire was right off the post which made the finish a bit trickier than it looks. However, it should be converted 100 times out of 100. Or maybe 99 out of 100, and that was the only mistake.

Now for the good news. United still haven’t conceded a goal since February 21 and still haven’t lost in any competition since January 27. They moved up to second in the Premier League table and have just beaten the league leaders and their bitter rivals Manchester City. Sunday to end City’s 21-game winning streak.

Amad Diallo scored in the 50th minute to give United a 1-0 lead against Milan as well. So there is a lot to do for Maguire. Not a single golden opportunity to score.
