Former Porto and Zenit forward Hulk was called upon by his Shanghai SIPG team-mates during their Chinese Super League meeting with Tianjin Quanjian on Saturday, as the away side were awarded a second-half penalty.
You'd have put your money on the Brazil international to hit the back of the net, too - or at least until he started his staggered run up to take the spot-kick.
Although he sent the goalkeeper the wrong way, Hulk swept the ball wide of the post, before looking around in search of someone to blame for the blunder.
The game eventually ended 1-1, with countryman Alexandre Pato later levelling the game, as SIPG missed the opportunity to climb to the top of the CSL table.
