The former Real Madrid striker was left looking flabbergasted as he managed to hit the post in his Spain kit
Alvaro Morata has endured a tough first season in the Premier League with Chelsea and it seems as though his luck is not about to change any time soon.
The striker was heralded as one of the most promising players in the world after his stint with Juventus and his spell in the Spanish capital.
However, despite a bright start to his career at Stamford Bridge, his luck has almost completely run out.
In 2018, he has managed to score just seven goals – a shoddy return for a striker with a £58million price tag.
And when you thought extra shooting practice might just stop the rot, the 26-year-old was caught on camera producing perhaps the miss of the season.
While filming a Spanish TV commercial, the striker picked up a ball outside the box and tucked it under his shirt. Whilst running around his opponent, Morata dropped the ball in front of goal, with only the goalkeeper to beat – or so he thought.
Inexplicably, the Spain international hit the post from only a few yards out, to the amazement and humour of his co-star.
