VIDEO: Japanese Goalkeeper Norihiro Yamagishi Scores Injury-Time Winner In Play-Off

Japanese outfit Montedio Yamagata were throwing the kitchen sink at their opponents on Saturday.

They travelled to Jubilo Iwata in their play-off semi-final as they went in search of a place in the final on December 7.

Montedio Yamagata finished 6th in the J2 League whilst hosts Jubilo Iwata came fourth.

But with the game tied at 1-1 and the game well into stoppage time, the visitors decided to go for it by sending the goalkeeper up to attack a corner-kick – and it paid off much to their delight.

Goalkeeper Norihiro Yamagishi rose the highest to send a stunning glancing header into the far corner and seal the win for his side.

Needless to say, the travelling support were sent into raptures.

Montedio Yamagata now face JEF United in the play-off final next month.
