Incredible miss from Kozanis' Thanasis Takidis in Greek lower leagues

There's a good chance you missed last weekend's clash between Makedonikos Kozanis and Vatera in the regional fourth tier of Greek football.

Thankfully, there was but one notable highlight -- a truly amazing miss from Kozanis striker Thanasis Takidis.

Indeed, having picked the goalkeeper's pocket, our friend Thanasis still somehow failed to hit the back of the net despite finding himself less than 30cm out from a completely vacant goal.

While it should be noted that the defender on the line did actually make a decent last-ditch tackle at one point, there can be no doubting where that chance should have ended up.

Oh well Thanasis, there's always next time.
