Ousmane Dembele's astonishing miss during Paris Saint-Germain clash against Nice has taken the internet by storm, quickly going viral on social media.

The 26-year-old managed to spurn a golden chance wide from ten yards with an open goal at his mercy.

It would have been an equaliser for the French champions, who were trailing 1-0 to the unbeaten Nice side in the 28th minute.

Dembele was played through by Kylian Mbappe and had Goncalo Ramos available, but he decided to do it alone.

The PSG hotshot unleashed a fierce shot that flew over the bar, approximately 10 metres wide, leaving fans at Parc des Princes and viewers in disbelief.

Social media reactions

The miss was so unexpected that it instantly became a trending topic on various social media platforms.

Fans and football enthusiasts around the world shared and commented on the clip of Dembele's miss, with many expressing their surprise and amusement.

Memes and jokes also began circulating, making the miss a hot topic of conversation in the online sports community.

@TMaffin said:

"PSG thought they did something when they replaced Leo Messi with Ousmane Dembele"

@DKostanjsak tweeted:

"Dembele is frustrating; always has been and likely always will be. He's erratic, unpredictable, often inconsistent and perplexing. That's pretty much the only constant about him. I know it's popular to hate on him... But he's still a top tier player."

@Abu_uzairat wrote:

"When I was telling people that Dembele is overrated but nobody care..what can you do with a player that lack quick decision on a ball and last touch to assist for a goal."

PSG stunned at home by Nice

Sports Brief reported earlier that Paris Saint-Germain slipped to their first loss of the Ligue 1 season despite a Kylian Mbappe double as an impressive Nice secured a 3-2 victory at the Parc des Princes on Friday, with Terem Moffi scoring twice.

PSG fell behind less than midway through the first half as Moffi found the net following a poor mistake by Mbappe.

The France striker made amends on the half-hour mark, but Gaetan Laborde restored Nice's lead eight minutes after the break and Moffi put another past the ragged hosts.
