In a shocking moment during the Women's World Cup, one of the best players in the world missed a penalty kick en route to her team's exit from the tournament.

Australia's Sam Kerr, arguably the best player in the world, lined up for a penalty kick against Norway but pushed the ball wide right.

The kick wasn't even close as it sailed high and wide - leaving Australia behind in the penalty kicks after extra time couldn't decide a winner.

It was a heartbreaking moment for Kerr, who struggled to make an impact through much of the game.

Kerr's missed kick didn't matter in the end as Australia failed to take advantage at the penalty spot on the very next kick.

With the win, Norway is on to the quarterfinals.
