Hang your head in head in shame Oscar.

 

Yes, it took just 11 minutes for Brazilian midfielder Oscar to miss two penalties in a recent game for Shanghai SIPG against Urawa Reds.

The game was  being played in the Asian equivalent of the Champions League (also confusingly called the Champions League).

 

Shanghai ultimately lost the game 1-0. Don't blame yourself too much Oscar.

 

Things are going a little bit better in the league however, as the team managed by Andre Villas-Boas are currently second, after winning three of their opening four matches.

Oscar is one of four non-Chinese players in the side, including Hulk and former Chelsea defender Ricardo Carvalho, with the Chinese market becoming much more attractive for the world's top footballers.

 

The Chinese Super League currently contains former Premier League players such as Graziano Pellè, Ramiers and Demba Ba.

 

Oscar moved to China in January for around £60m.

The 25-year-old is on a reported £400,000-a-week at Shanghai, and in the 11 minutes it took to miss two penalties, he earned just over £430.

 

Oscar spent four and a half years at Stamford Bridge before moving to Asia. In that time, the midfielder played over 200 times for the club and scored 38 goals.

 

During his spell in London, the Brazilian won a Premier League title, a League Cup and the Europa League in 2013.
