Dutch soccer player Nicoletta Den Ridder misses wide-open goal with kick (Video)

The failed goal attempt came courtesy of AC Beerschot striker Nicoletta Den Ridder in a game against Ajax.

After the Ajax goalkeeper made the original save on the free kick, the ball bounced right to Nicoletta who had an open goal in front of her but somehow found a way to blow it:
