It seems even training wasn't going so well for Dick Advocaat's men.

This clip was taken from a session before Holland'sย crunch match against Sweden โ€“ย oneย that required the Dutch to win by a seven-goal margin to qualifyย for the 2018ย World Cup.

With shooting practiceย firmly on the agenda, Babel saw his first attemptsย cannon back to him via the right-hand post, the bar, and then the firstย post again respectively. He followed those up with a woeful fourth shot that flew high above goal as his onlooking team-mates sarcastically applauded him.

Holland went on to beat Sweden 2-0 courtesy of an Arjen Robben brace on his last international appearance, butย it wasn't enough to see them through and the Oranje will miss their second consecutive major tournament.ย  ย
