It seemed easier to score than miss, but not for Belgium's Christian Benteke.

Christian Benteke produced a contender for international miss of the season when he lofted the ball over the bar in Belgium’s friendly against Ivory Coast.

The Aston Villa striker looked visibly embarrassed after squandering a regulation tap-in from seven-yards.

Everton’s Kevin Mirallas rolled the ball across the face of goal, but with the goal gaping and the ‘keeper out of the equation, Benteke somehow skied his shot over the bar.
