It almost was one of the goals of the round. Collecting a pass into his stride, Liverpool star Darwin Nunez skipped past the defender, then left the goalkeeper on the ground, finding himself face-to-face with an empty net. What followed left those watching in disbelief. Nunez’s subsequent shot didn’t roll into the unguarded goal; instead, it rattled off the woodwork before Toulouse cleared their lines.

Nunez’s miss didn’t prove costly, nonetheless. Liverpool romped to a 5-1 win, with Nunez scoring in the first half after Diogo Jota and Wataru Endo had helped the Reds into a 2-0 lead. Ryan Gravenberch and Mohamed Salah added a goal each after the interval to stretch Liverpool’s lead at the top of their group. 

Yet, Nunez remained the talk of the town, owing to his poor miss. Here’s how social media reacted to the Uruguay star failing to convert a gilt-edged chance:
