During a match between Swedish soccer clubs IF Elfsborg and Helsingborg on Wednesday, Elfsborg midfielder Nicklas Hult had one shot on goal that he probably wishes he could take over again.

Hult made a splendid run to latch onto a ball that a teammate had lofted forward from the defensive side of the midfield line. The ball first dropped about 30-35 from goal and the Helsingborg keeper made an ill-advised charge to clear it. But Hult arrived first and poked it past the onrushing keeper. His quick first touch sent him bearing down on the empty net.

With the gaping Helsingborg calling staring him down as he and the ball were carried across the goalmouth by their momentum, The Hult couldn't control his shot and fired wide of the target.

To make matters worse, according to Dirty Tackle, Hult was being observed by talent scouts from Porto and Marseille during the match. Fortunately for Hult, his side still won the match 3-2 and he still managed to notch a goal in the contest.
