It is a failure that could well go around the world for Mauro Icardi. If the former PSG striker is rejuvenating himself in Turkey, on the side of Galatasaray, Parisian fans will not fail to smile when seeing the action carried out Tuesday night during a league match against Istanbulspor.
The idea was brilliant: a penalty played with two as we rarely see. Offset by his winger Akturkoglu, Icardi arrives at full speed in the box and only has to push the ball to the bottom, the goalkeeper having dived into the feint and finding himself on the ground. But the Argentine striker misses the frame in a rather incomprehensible way.

A misfire that did not prevent Icardi from opening the scoring, five minutes later, on another offering from Akturkoglu.
