We love great goals, but when a great goal is scored in the final minute of the match by a team playing with only 9-men, it is that much sweeter.
In the last round of matches in Spain’s second division, Salamanca hosted Elche and heading into the final seconds of the game things were looking decidedly dicey for the hosts. Fuster had fired the visitors ahead after twenty minutes, and with Salamanca chasing the game they had Pelegrin (80) and Sales (90) both dismissed.
Cue the wonderfully named Quique Martin to score a superb last-gasp injury-time equaliser. Instant control, sharpness of mind, the top corner, and a fair share of luck. It was a great way to finish the match.
Quique Martin’s excellent 90th minute leveller can be seen here.
