Trailing 2-1 as their Asian Champions League with Japanese side Nagoya Grampus Eight ticked over into injury time last night, Seongnam (of South Korea) were getting desperate and needed something super duper special to restore parity. What followed was roughly one full level above ‘super duper special’.

With the ball milling around after a long throw, Brazilian midfielder Everton Santos flung a looping overhead kick cross back into the Grampus Eight penalty area, only to see it exquisitely finished by his compatriot Heverton via the medium of a second consecutive overhead kick…

As last-minute equalisers go, I’ve definitely seen worse.
