Azerbaijan's Edu strikes late to stun Slovenia

Published: Friday 31 January 2014, 22.00CET

Azerbaijan flying goalkeeper Edu struck with less than 30 seconds to go in an incredible match which Slovenia had seemingly won.

Having upset Italy 3-2 on Wednesday, matters were in Slovenia's hands, and at 5-2 up thanks to Gašper Vrhovec's hat-trick they appeared set to seal top spot in Group C and a last-eight berth. However, Azerbaijan levelled at 5-5 and 6-6 before Edu's last-minute intervention left the section wide open ahead of his team's Sunday decider with Italy.

  • End Time
    The final whistle is blown.
    An incredible ending. Azerbaijan can afford a one-goal loss to Italy on Sunday, Slovenia will probably also be through from Group C but not certain yet. Maybe that will make up for Azerbaijan's 9-8 exit to Serbia two years ago...
