Video: Miss of the season? Christian Benteke misses open goal for Belgium in friendly against Ivory Coast
Aston Villa striker with a shocker of an effort in Wednesday's friendly
Just three days after his brilliant bicycle kick, Christian Benteke shows he is human after all.
Here is the striker, on international duty, missing an open goal in Belgium's 2-2 draw with the Ivory Coast on Wednesday night.
In the 48th minute, Benteke was put through by Everton midfielder Kevin Mirrallas, who passed the ball across the box past the exposed goalkeeper Mande Sayouba...and with the goal at his mercy the 23-year-old could fired the ball over from just 10 yards.
It was in stark contrast to Benteke's clinical performance for Aston Villa against Norwich City on Sunday, when his acrobatic kick sparked a marvellous comeback for the Villans, he then scored a header two minutes later as Villa ran out 4-1 winners.
