95th minute Deportivo de la Coruna is awarded a last gasp corner. The ball comes floating down and a figure in a lime green jersey rises above the thicket of bodies like a champion no 9 and heads the ball goalwards. It is Dani Aranzubia, Depor’s custodian soaring into the record books with the first ever goal by a goalkeeper from open play in La Liga history.
The goal evened the score against Almeria and more importantly gave them a 3 point cushion from the drop zone.
Watch Aranzubia’s other finest moment. Three penalty stops (PK shootout in its entire 12+ minutes) instrumental in Depor progressing to the next round of the 2008 UEFA Cup at the expense of SK Brann after both teams deadlocked 2-2 on aggregate.
