Club America Goalkeeper Moises Muñoz Scores Fantastic Injury Time Goal

It seems as if late goals and heroic endings have become popular after Watford’s Troy Deeney scored one of the most epic counter-attacks in football history. This week, however, the drama moved to Mexico and Mexico City in particular as Cruz Azul and Club America battled for the Mexican Championship.

Things didn’t start as planned for Club America, however, as the side lost the first leg 1-0 then lost a man and conceded another goal at the start of the second leg. Down two goals in the aggregate and down a man, things weren’t looking good for America. Aquivaldo Mosquera scored what appeared to be a consolation goal in the 89th minute, but the match turned on its head when Moises Muñoz, Club America’s goalkeeper came up for a corner in injury time.

One diving header and deflection later, the score was leveled at two goals a piece and extra time was forced. A goalless thirty minutes meant penalties where Club America overcame their league and city rivals 4-2. In the process, Club America won their 11th Mexican championship. Check out the header below…
