thumbnail Hello,

The shot stopper was over the moon with his show-stealing header...

Standard Liege were on the edge of European elimination in Wednesday's Champions League game against AZ, but a late goal from goalkeeper Sinan Bolat helped the Belgians to a 1-1 draw, sending them into the Europa League in the process.

"I looked to the bench to get permission to go forward and they all nodded to allow me to leave my goal," Bolat told Goal.com after the match.

"Then of course you hope to score, but you think it probably won't happen. However, the beautiful free kick came and I headed the ball home with a lot of luck.
 
"I admit that it's pure luck. Mainly I have to thank God, who gave me this goal. It was the last second of the game and my first goal ever. Amazing."

Bolat wasn't the only keeper to find the net on matchday 6 of the Champions League. Hans Joerg Butt converted a spot kick for Bayern Munich in Tuesday's 4-1 win against Juventus.
