In the 92nd minute, Fluminense’s No. 10, Junior Sornoza of Ecuador scored an incredible goal from a corner kick to give the Brazilian hosts a 2-0 win over Uruguay’s Defensor Sporting. With Defensor trailing and looking for a quick counter attack from the corner kick, Sornoza eyed Defensor’s Guillermo Reyes off his line, waiting for a ball into the middle of the box.

Sornoza picked out the far corner and the rest is history. Never chance, Copa Sudamericana (and Copa Libertadores).
