An injury time equaliser in front of your own fans is a great way to end a game.

And it doesn't get much better than scoring with a back-heel.

Or against the champions.

Combine all those elements with the goal scorer being the keeper and you've got the ingredients for something a bit special.

That's what happened during last night's Eredivisie match between ADO Den Haag and PSV Eindhoven. With ADO Den Haag trailing 2-1 at home to the Dutch champions, goalkeeper Martin Hansen went up for a free-kick with just seconds left on the clock.

But rather than loft the ball in high to the former Liverpool stopper, the free-kick went a little behind Hansen. He had to improvise and did so with a back-heel that if it were performed by Lionel Messi we'd be saying was the goal-of-the-season already.

The goal from Hansen, who was on Liverpool's books between 2010 and 2012 but who never played a game for the Reds, saw the match end 2-2.
