Watch: Mainz II’s goalkeeper backheels home an injury-time equaliser

Finn Dahmen attained hero status in the Nullfünfer dressing room after improvising to grab the hosts a last-gasp draw

Mainz II were trailing to an 11th-minute strike from Stuttgart II’s Jan Ferdinand at the Stadion am Bruchweg on Wednesday afternoon – but they found their equaliser in the most dramatic fashion deep into injury time.

In the 92nd minute, a free-kick into the box was nodded into the path of Mainz’s 20-year-old goalkeeper Dahmen, who instinctively flicked the ball around two defenders and into the bottom corner to send his team-mates home happy.
