Thomas Mueller

Germany's Thomas Mueller was the joint-top scorer at the 2010 World Cup, and already has three goals to his name this year after a stunning showing in the opening match against Portugal.

But it seems that he is capable of missing the target after all: at a Germany training session on Friday he was attempting a drill which involved him linking up with a team-mate before pinging the ball into a miniature target practice goal.

Instead of lashing it in the net, however, the 24-year-old clobbered the ball over the advertising boards at the side of the pitch... and straight into the face of a fan who was watching the session.
