Lets face it, nothing beats a last minute goal in football 😀
Amid the joy if you on the winning side and heartbreak for the losing team, the emotional fanfare defines the passion for the round leather game.
We are going down the memory lane and we list The 5 Most Dramatic Last Minute Goals In Football:
1. Sergio Ramos Goal; Real Madrid vs Atletico Madrid (2014 Champions League Final)
Real Madrid’s hope of a La Decima honour was slipping through their fingers after Diego Godin put Atletico Madrid ahead in the first half.
But with barely a minute left on the clock, defender Sergio Ramos leaped and sent in a bullet header to equalise for Real Madrid and send the tense final into extra time- a game that Madrid later won courtesy of 3 goals.
2. Andres Iniesta Goal; Chelsea vs Barcelona (2009 Champions League Semifinal)
In a game that was marred with controversies and poor referring, Chelsea fans will forever rue that miserable night at the Bridge.
After Micheal Essen had scored a scintillating goal to hand the advantage to the home side, and Barcelona were reduced to 10 men with Eric Abidal sent off, another Chelsea-Man United final was on the horizon.
However, in football, things can change really fast. And it surely did in Stamford Bridge that night.
Barcelona needed an away goal and they got it.
Lionel Messi found Iniesta, the Spaniard immediately fired a shot into the top corner that beat Petr Cech gracefully.
3. Sergio Aguero Goal; Manchester City vs Qpr (Premier League Final Match Day Fixture)
Do you believe in miracles? if you don’t, this match will give you a rethink.
Manchester United under Alex Ferguson thought they had won their sixth Premier League title after they beat Sunderland 1-0 and Manchester City were drawing 2-2 with QPR in a match they needed to win to secure the trophy.
Then, Aguero, did the unthinkable and i will leave you with this world class commentary by Martin Tyler that day:
“It finished at Sunderland. Manchester United have done all they can, that Rooney goal was enough for the 3 points”
“But Manchester City are still alive here, Balotelli…….AGUEROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!”
4. Ben Watson Goal; Wigan vs Manchester City (2013 FA Cup Final)
A relegation threatened Wigan side were facing a Manchester City team that won the Premier League the previous year and were looking for a second FA Cup trophy in three years.
In a fierce encounter that many thought Man City would win by a large margin, the Latics did the impossible!
A brave Ben Watson scored from a powerful header from a corner kick in stoppage time to send Wigan fans in Wembly into raptures- it was crazy- see the video yourself below!
5. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Goal; Manchester United vs Bayern Munich (1999 Champions League Final)
It was an uneventful first 90 minutes. So mundane. Manchester United fans were even more disgusted after watching their side go 2-0 down to Bayern Munich.
But the final minutes of this game will forever be cemented in the history books.
After substitute Teddy Sheringham made it 2-2 for Alex Ferguson’s Man United in the 91st minute, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer then wrote the final script.
A David Becham’s corner found Sheringham, who nodded the ball towards goal allowing Solskjaer to poke the ball into the roof of the net for Manchester United to take the lead and win the Champions League that night.
“Football!, bloody hell!,”– Sir Alex Ferguson later said after the game.
