Goalkeeper scores dramatic last-minute equaliser to get Benevento its first Serie A point
The team had lost all 14 of their games and were on course for another defeat.
Benevento has defied expectations in a finale to remember after finally grabbing their first point of the season.
The team had lost all 14 of their Serie A games and were on course for another defeat until Alberto Brignoli scored a dramatic equaliser.
The 26-year-old goalkeeper scored with a diving header in the 95th minute to seal the 2-2 draw with AC Milan by launching himself at a Danilo Cataldi free-kick and steering the ball past his Milan counterpart Gianluigi Donnarumma.

Sensational drama at Benevento 👏 pic.twitter.com/3q7qVYbvYU
The build-up to the match may have been dominated by the return of AC Milan’s Gennaro Gattuso as manager, but the game will live long in the memory for very different reasons.

2001 - Prior to today the last goakeeper to score in Serie A was Massimo Taibi on 1st April 2001. Strange. #BeneventoMilan— OptaPaolo (@OptaPaolo) December 3, 2017
