However, amazingly, somehow the Hull No 10 smacked his shot against a post – and soon his miss was going viral on social media.
“That will likely haunt his dreams for some time to come,” claimed one supporter.
Another tweeted: “MISS OF THE SEASON!”
“Oh Adama Traore, how on earth did you miss that,” asked a Hull City supporter.
While a fellow Tigers fan said: “Adama Traore has just missed an open goal from 7 yards out by hitting the post.
“I have never been so far into a celebration to then see a player not actually score. WHAT ON EARTH!”
That miss summed up a frustrating second half for Liam Rosenior’s side, who had the better chances after Joe Rodon’s dismissal for a second caution on the hour.
Daniel Farke’s Leeds bossed the first period and Georginio Rutter was gifted the first chance.
Alfie Jones made a mess of a routine clearance on halfway and completely missed early sub Crysencio Summerville’s throughball to Rutter, who was denied by keeper Ryan Allsop’s feet.
Allsop was then forced to make a smart save at his near post to keep out a firm effort from Summerville as Leeds set up camp at the edge of his area.
But Allsop saved his best for the end of the first half when he dived full length to parry Archie Gray’s half-volley behind.
The visitors wasted no time putting Hull on the back foot after the restart and Daniel James and Summerville had shots blocked before Ethan Ampadu and Luke Ayling drove over. Ayling later managed to get booked for time-wasting as he walked round the pitch following his substitution.
Hull finally managed a shot before the hour but Jaden Philogene-Bidace’s wayward effort would have cleared rugby posts, never mind Meslier’s goal.
Liam Delap had appeals for a penalty turned away by referee Stephen Martin after Rodon’s slight nudge.
Tigers got a lift when Rodon saw red for fouling Connolly. The Irish striker just failed to get on the end of a cross — but they were left deflated after Traore’s horror miss.
