[VIDEO PICK: Golazo] Alfredo Frausto's goal in the 91st minute sent the game to overtime, after which the goalkeeper scored the winning penalty, in the Copa MX final on Wednesday.

Correcaminos UAT had a 2-1 lead on its fellow second division club Dorados, who were playing with ten men, when it gave away a corner in injury time that led to its undoing.

Former Chicago Fire standout Cuahtemoc Blanco, 39, is the captain and star of Dorados, but it was his goalkeeper, Frausto, who tied the game with only seconds to play, leading to a Copa MX title for both of them on penalties 5-4.

Blanco scored the first penalty kick, and his keeper, Frausto, scored the cup-winning fifth penalty.

Here’s the equalizer, where Frausto jumps on this deflected corner like a carnivore on wounded prey, with a poacher’s finish. The man hot under the collar, who looks like he’s dressed for a bullfight, is the coach for Correcaminos. Seriously.
