Deportivo keeper Daniel Aranzubia concedes an element of fortune involved in dramatic headed equaliser against Almeria.

Deportivo’s goalscoring goalkeeper Daniel Aranzubia has admitted that there was a huge element of luck involved in his 94th minute equaliser which earned his side a point against Almeria in La Liga on Sunday.

The shot-stopper came forward for the corner as his team trailed 1-0, and he leapt highest inside the penalty area to nod the ball into the net for the most unlikely of levellers.

Speaking to Cadena SER after his momentous strike, Aranzubia confessed that he had been fortunate, saying: “These moves are never practiced, this is a matter of luck, but I’m delighted.

“I did what I do with my team-mates and tried to repeat their actions in the best way possible. I have gone forward before in games, but never scored a goal. [Coach Miguel Angel] Lotina was happy for me, and I managed to win a point for the team.”

The Galician side remain just three points clear of the relegation zone despite earning a draw, leaving Almeria anchored in the bottom three.
