England midfielder James Maddison had a moment to forget in the Three Lions' clash against Australia.
The Tottenham Hotspur midfielder has been in electric form since his summer move from Leicester City. His excellent performances so far this season convinced Gareth Southgate to start him against Australia at Wembley.
However, in front of the Wembley crowd, which also featured his own manager Ange Postecoglou, Maddison took what some fans think was the "worst shot ever in the history of football."

Maddison made an intelligent run in-behind the left-hand side of the Australia back four, which was spotted by Jack Grealish. He latched onto the ball and dinked inside of a Socceroo defender.
As the far corner began to open up, every England fan in Wembley took a sharp in-take of breath in anticipation of another Maddison screamer. Unfortunately, Maddison's shot was scuffed so badly the ball did not even go out for a corner as the midfielder blasted it high and wide.

As is always the case when an elite level footballer makes a big error, England fans could not help but laugh. "James Maddison with quite possibly the worst shot taken in the history of the professional football," one ruthless fan said.
"For all the talk from him in the past week I really expected more," another supporter said. "Funniest shot of all time," a second laughed, before a third said: "that Maddison shot was so bad."
Maddison immediately looked to the turf, as if he was blaming his miscue on a Wembley bobble. Nevertheless, the Tottenham man did look to be England's most dangerous player in the game.
Moments after his effort, Maddison created England's best chance of the first half when he threaded a wonderful through ball into the path of Ollie Watkins, who rounded the goalkeeper but could not quite squeeze the ball into the net.
