St. Pauli goalkeeper Philipp Tschauner scores 90th minute header against Paderborn
St. Pauli goalkeeper Philipp Tschauner has become a YouTube hit after scoring a dramatic late equaliser against Paderborn.
The 27-year-old stopper was up from the back in an effort to rescue a point in the Bundesliga 2 match, and duly delivered with a close range header that flew beyond his helpless opponent.
The goal helped ease relegation fears for the hosts, with Michael Frontzeck’s side now nine points clear of the relegation zone in the German second tier with just seven games remaining.
Marius Ebbers had given St. Pauli an undeserved lead in the second-half, but goals from Deniz Yilmaz and Mahir Saglik appeared to turn the match around for Paderborn.
However, Tschauner’s late intervention ensured a precious point at the Millerntor-Stadion, and means survival is all-but assured for the much-loved former top tier outfit.
