    Yeah I know.  Seems impossible but it happens.  I’ve seen it happen much closer than that. And you think ‘how is that possible you utter ****, my granny could stick it in from there’ . But that’s why we watch football.

    D.E.B.S has pretty much covered it. I'll add 1 more, they are participating in matchfixing.

    Pick one or more:

    They took their eye off the ball (thus making bad contact)

    They tried to get too fancy beating the keeper/defender.

    They misjudged the speed, spin, or angle the ball was approaching them.

    The ball was deflected before they made contact

    The ball took a bad bounce on its approach.  

    They just aren't that good to start with.

    They were fouled.

    They were pressured but not fouled.

    They purposely missed b/c they were bought off by the mob.

    They purposely missed b/c they are sleeping with the keeper's wife and know that if he has a bad game that he'll be needy when he gets home making it impossible for her to get away to come and meet him at his place.

    Different reasons possible - under pressure from an opponent, poor technique (leaning backwards), tiredness,  ball bobbles up on a divot.......
