Goalkeeper Scores 104th Minute Equaliser In 3-3 Draw Against Andres Iniesta's Vissel Kobe

In an absolute bonkers game over in Japan between Shimizu S-Pulse and a Vissel Kobe side featuring Andres Iniesta and Lukas Podolski, goalkeeper Yuji Rokutan scored a dramatic equaliser in the 14th minute of stoppage time.

Vissel, who had two players sent off in the game, were leading 3-1 but Douglas popped up for the hosts to reduce the deficit in the 87th minute and then a load of stoppage time was given because of an injury.

It gave Shimizu some precious time to grab a leveller against 10-man Vissel but the goal came through the most unlikely of sources.

Rokutan came up from a corner and rose higher than anyone else to head home and make it 3-3. You would have expected him to go wild after finding the net but the goalie basically just acknowledged his teammates and raced back to his goal.

It finished all-square but there was room for more madness in the crazy game. An overly aggressive challenge from Vissel's Wellington was penalised and sparked a bit of a melee between players and staff.

Wellington was then given a second yellow card and subsequently his marching orders but as Rokutan came over to try and hurry the Brazilian off the pitch, he ended up getting judo-thrown in a mental end to an incident-packed encounter.


Elsewhere in the penultimate matchday in the J-League, Spanish striker Fernando Torres saved Sagan Tosu from automatic relegation with a late winner against Yokohama F. Marinos.
