'It seemed impossible to miss, but ...'

[VIDEO PICK] Underdog Cesena may have done even better than a 2-2 tie with Juventus had Emanuele Giaccherini not missed on the easiest of chances.

As the video reveals, Giaccherini was offered some sympathy as he coped with the disappointment -- and his coach was light hearted in his response.

“It seemed impossible to miss, but he managed it!” Cesena boss Massimo Ficcadenti said with a laugh. “We were 1-0 down, it probably would’ve been a different game. In any case, he did well to keep his head on the match, because a mistake like that can affect your confidence.”

    That was a lot harder than it looked- it was a tight angle, a bouncing ball, and a fast closing defender. He should have finished it, but this was not as bad as some of the easy chances you see squandered on these kinds of videos.
