Everybody loves a scoring goalie: Dario Capogrosso (CAI) vs Gimnasia de Jujuy

What a goal, and what a time to score.

Saturday evening in Argentina’s second division saw relegation threatened CAI take on high-flyers Gimnasia de Jujuy, in a match that exploded into life in injury time at the end of the game.

Gimnasia took a 91st minute lead through Antonio Romero and looked to be on course for the three points until the amazing happened.

In the 94th minute home keeper Dario Capogrosso had one final opportunity to hurl the ball into the mixer when the goalie took a free-kick 70-yards from his opponents goals. Whacking the ball with all his might, and aided by a favourable wind, Capogrosso then watched as his hoof travelled all the way to the other side of the pitch and dipped just under the bar for the unlikeliest of equalisers.
