Everton may have sealed a 1-0 win over Wolfsburg to send the Toffees through to the Europa League knock-out stages, but the game could have been a bit easier if it wasn’t for Aiden McGeady’s shocking miss!
The competition usually referred to as the Champions League’s little brother, many clubs use the competition to give new players or youngsters the opportunity to shine and impress their managers.
Well it seems McGeady didn’t get the memo, because after Emanuel Adebayor’s shot was parried away into the former Celtic star’s path, all he needed was hit the ball on target into an almost empty net.
However, he did a Balotelli, sailing it over the bar from only a few meters out.
But in any case, Everton won and progressed so the Republic of Ireland international can look back and laugh at his now forgivable miss.
