Video: Breffni Park witnessed one of the worst misses in International Rules history

Steven Motlop won’t be proud to see the replays of this shocking effort.

Ireland eased to a comfortable win over the Aussies in Cavan last night, but the margin should have been less with this goal chance spurned.

In fairness to Motlop, he was one of the visitors most prominent players and ended up as their top scorer, but how he contrived to miss this opportunity is difficult to comprehend.

Badly needing to reduce to gap to give themselves something to play for in Croke Park next week, he had a gaping goal at his mercy, but hit the woodwork from point blank range.

To be filed in the “could do better” category.
