Eight of the most heartbreaking last minute goals

Harry Kettle

Football is a cruel, cruel game. Forget about the heartbreak of TV shows and movies – the agony of conceding a last minute goal in a big match is never ending, and these are potentially the worst of them all.

It’s funny how the elation you feel from scoring late on can leave you numb to the fact that the opposition have just experienced utter deflation. The contrast between the two emotions is captured more perfectly in this sport than any other around the world.

Just have a look at these eight occasions here… 


Now that’s not to say there aren’t several other examples that could’ve easily been included here, because there are. But with the stage on which these occasions were set, you just knew that any form of drama was going to end in joy for one and absolute misery for the other.

More of the same in the future please, chaps.
