Today marks a historic day in the history of Italian football as Beneventuro shot-stopper Alberto Brignoli became the first 'keeper to score a goal in 16 years.
Beneventuro have been in awful form this season - up until today they've secured 0 points from 14 games in Serie A. Many predicted that an away fixture against AC Milan would bring the same result for Beneventuro as all their other games this season: defeat.
AC Milan scored the first goal of the game before Beneventuro equalised in the 50th minute, only for Milan to go back in front just 7 minutes later. A 75th minute sending-off of an AC Milan player provided hope for the newly-promoted side, however as the game approached the 90 minute mark it seemed as though Benevnturo were heading for another loss.
In the 5th minute of stoppage time Beneventuro were awarded a freekick in a dangerous position, and even their goalkeeper went up to try to help his team get a late goal. This risk paid off as the goalkeeper, Alberto Birgnoli, managed to get his head onto the ball and direct it straight into the bottom corner!
What a moment for Birgnoli, and what a moment for Beneventuro! Shame they'll get relegated, though...
