The Mousse would surely have found some part of his body to drag that into the net with him? :)  

At full speed it looks an astonishing miss, but slowed down, he slides in & the ball bounces off him (his heel, according to the report on VG) & away from goal. By coincidence, the guilty party is a sort of 'former neighbour' of Moussa's, Morocco-born Tarik Elyounoussi, the older cousin of Mohamed who is now with Southampton & was also in the Norwegian team.

The media haven't been making too much of a fuss about the miss, focusing more on the disastrous short pass-back which caused their keeper to up-end Morata, giving Ramos the winning goal from the spot. The match report had one non-pc, but amusing, comment "to watch Norway play international football is like watching an african ski for the first time...." :lol:  (I suppose you need to have seen both) 

 

I'd forgotten Norway were playing last night, and was instead occupied by a different Norwegian drama on NRK's live stream, the drifting cruiseship Viking Sky, which lost power to its engines, then its stabilisers, after being hit by two storm fronts on its route past the most dangerous section of the Norwegian coastline, Hustadvika, between Kristiansund & Molde, and was being tossed about like a plastic bottle, rolling 45 degrees to each side, while the rescue helicopters evacuated some of the passengers. The ship was just 100 metres from grounding on the very jagged granite outcrops just above & below the water, when it got power back in one engine, and was able to move back out to the safe shipping lane. :o

Riveting stuff, though played out at a pace not dissimilar to an NM side at the peak of the square-passing phase ;)
