With the aggregate score tied at 3-3 and Sporting Lisbon going through on away goals, Man City sent everybody up for one last ‘Hurrah’ in the 95th-minute with the very last grain of sand about to fall through the Boggle timer of fate.

Nigel de Jong pumped a long ball to the back stick, where Joe Hart (a goalkeeper by trade, may we remind you) ran in behind, out-muscled Daniel Carrico and plonked a header back across goal, only for Rui Patricio to get a fateful finger on it and send the ball bobbling past the post…

So very nearly absolutely glorious.
