Watch: Wayne Rooney’s Terrible Corner Kick Attempt Nearly Sails into Stands

England’s Wayne Rooney has scored plenty of wonderful goals throughout his career. But during Saturday’s Italy-England match, he had a moment that can be best described as ’embarrassing.’

In the 77th minute, he attempted a corner kick. He blasted it roughly 10 yards above the goal. In fact, it never even entered the field of play.

Corner kicks require a very low level of skill to execute. All he had to do was play the ball into the box—anywhere would’ve sufficed. Instead, the ball shot off his foot out of bounds, and nearly sailed into the stands. The fans in attendance almost had a souvenir.
