A ROMA fan fell flat on his backside, literally, when claiming he could score a goal like one of his heroes.
The Italian club uploaded a montage of Cengiz Under’s best goals ahead of his return to the team from injury.

Twitter / @ASRomaEN But in hilarious scenes, the supporters falls over his own feet and the chance is gone
Twitter / @ASRomaEN Marco Nicolai had posted on social media saying it was ‘easy’ to score one of Cengiz Under’s goals – seemingly not so easy
But one supporter, Marco Nicolai, wrote: “Even I could have scored that goal against Parma”. And these words would come back to bite him.
The club’s automotive partner Hyundai decided to get in contact with Marco and check whether he REALLY could have scored that goal.
And the results were hilarious.
Marco was picked up by Hyundai and transported to Roma’s Stadio Olimpico ahead of the Serie A clash against Napoli.
The car was driven right up to the pitch, where an enthusiastic Marco leapt out of the passenger side.
But his day took an interesting turn when he was told to show that he could have scored just like Under did against Parma.
He was given a kit and told to go change before his big chance on the hallowed turf.
With No17 on his back, the same number as Under, Marco’s first attempt was pathetic, with the star of the ad tripping over his own feet.
But wearing trainers for the shot, he was always fighting a losing battle.
His second attempt was SLIGHTLY better, in that he made contact with the ball for the tamest of efforts that trickled wide.
And unfortunately for the Roma fan, it was third time unlucky, as his next effort beat the keeper, but also the post and went wide.
A Hyundai representative asks him: “So you’ll never write that again?
Marco replies: “I don’t think so, no.”
After a quick handshake, Marco trots off down the tunnel.
His day got even worse, however.
Watching from the VIP area, Marco will have been left devastated as Roma, managed by Claudio Ranieri, were thumped 4-1 by Napoli.
Under appeared from the bench for just the last eight minutes with the game done and dusted.
