    Nunez, 23, is currently on international duty with Uruguay.

    But he may have given manager Diego Alonso a headache after a disastrous display in training.

    Competing with a teammate for a loose ball, Nunez first shoved his pal to the ground in a clear foul.

    The striker then charged towards goal from the wing before lining up a shot at goal.

    However, Nunez’s effort was an awful one, with the ball flying diagonally wide and almost hitting the corner flag.
