Watch: Romanian player pulls off worst free-kick you'll ever see

The hope... the expectation... and then this, from Voluntari striker Adrian Balan

We are part of The Trust Project What is it?

Voluntari's Balan was aiming to get his side off to a fine start as he stood over this free-kick in the 14th minute of this Liga I clash against Juventus Bucharest. 

Despite his best efforts, though, it didn't exactly go to plan. Nope: Balan smashed his set-piece so high that it ended up flying out of the stadium.

Voluntari, who are managed by ex-Chelsea striker Mutu, did at least take a point in the game which finished 2-2 – with Balan getting on the scoresheet in the 57th minute.
