After Phil Bardsley scored late in extra time for Sunderland on a David De Gea howler, Chicharito struck back in the dying seconds of extra time off an assist from Adnan Januzaj, sweeping home into an empty net to send the Capital One Cup semifinal into a shootout.
Unfortunately for Manchester United, the team turned in a dreadful performance from the spot, converting just one of five penalty kicks to lose 2-1 in the shootout and send Sudnderland to the final against Manchester City.
For the Mexican international, it was his second straight game with a goal, and his third tally in five matches. After scoring as a substitute against Chelsea on Sunday, David Moyes handed Chicharito the start against the Black Cats, and the striker went all 120 minutes.
