Swansea’s Bersant Celina had an unfortunate moment to forget in his side’s 2-0 loss to West Brom in the EFL Championship overnight.
Trailing 1-0 shortly before half-time, Swansea got an opportunity to square the ledger before the break when Mike van der Horn went down in the box.
Celina, once a star with Manchester City, stepped up to take the penalty – but completely flubbed it.

The 22-year-old seemed to slip as he tried to make contact with the ball, leaving it dribbling for a few metres before West Brom’s Chris Brunt to clear the ball easily.
Brunt got in Celina’s ear straight way after the awful penalty.
Unfortunately for Celina, his opponent wasn’t the only one to give it to him after the failed shot.
The young gun copped plenty of ribbing on Twitter for his efforts.
Graham Potter on Bersant Celina's penalty: "John Terry had a similar incident. It didn't look very pleasant, it wasn't nice." #Swans

Congratulations to Bersant Celina on surpassing Andrew Legg for the worst Swans penalty I've ever seen, and he put it wide of the East Stand at the Vetch.
