Modena goalkeeper scores incredible injury-time winner in Serie C

Serie C side Modena beat Imolese in the most incredible circumstances on Saturday.

With the scores level at 1-1 in second half stoppage time their goalkeeper, Riccardo Gagno, scored an unbelievable goal from just outside his own penalty area.

Modena, who went into the match top of the league, desperately needing all three points to gain promotion to Serie B.

But it looked as though they were going to drop points.

That was until Gagno hoofed the ball upfield in the 91st-minute. The kick was enormous but nobody expected the ball to bounce off the pitch quite as it did and into the back of the net.

There’s nothing quite like a goalkeeper scoring. But scoring an injury-time winner in a match that could seal promotion is something else.

And the celebrations were worthy of the goal as the home side went absolutely crazy at the Stadio Braglia.

Modena remain four points clear of their Serie C Group B table with just two matches left to play. Reggiana are the side in second praying for them to slip up in the final few weeks of the campaign.

But that’s now looking unlikely.

Modena need just one win from their final two matches.

On Thursday, we face a trip to Gubbio who are sat sixth in the table.

Even if they fail to win that, Modena will have another opportunity at home to 11th-placed Pontedara next Sunday.

Who’s this Spurs legend?

Promotion to Serie B is now very much in their hands – and they have their goalkeeper’s ridiculous goal to thank for that.

What a moment.
