Papiss Cissé's header deep into added time earned Newcastle United FC a place in the UEFA Europa League quarter-finals following a dramatic 1-0 win against an FC Anji Makhachkala side down to ten men for 35 minutes.

The crossbar was still rattling at the other end from Mbark Boussoufa's free-kick when the Premier League team, who had been under pressure for much of the first half, delivered the deadly blow. Sylvain Marveaux cut back on his left foot on the right flank and delivered a perfect centre for Cissé to rise, unmarked, and plant a header back across the prone Vladimir Gabulov and inside the far post.
