Did Ukrainian side Metalist Kharkiv score the quickest ever equaliser?
We all know the footballing cliche that you are always at your most vulnerable just after you have scored, and Metalist Kharkiv demonstrated that beautifully last weekend.
After falling behind to Chornomorets in their Ukrainian Super League game, Khakiv needed a quick response, but probably weren’t expecting something quite so rapid.
The quick thinking Brazilian striker Cleiton Xavier was the man to thank, as he ran up and smashed the ball over retreating goalkeeper Dmitriy Bezotosnyi.
In fairness, Bezotosnyi wasn’t concentrating as much as he should have been (and looks rightly downbeat afterwards), but it’s still a helluva strike from Xavier.
