[VIDEO PICK] Edgar Prib, now a YouTube hit, said he "died a thousand deaths" when he missed an open goal in German second division play.

The 21-year-old Greuther Fuerth midfielder hit the post from three yards against Eintracht Frankfurt after he chipped the ball over keeper Oka Nikolov.

“I could have decided that game but instead the god of soccer did not want it that way," Prib said after the 0-0 tie.
