Defender heads in amazing 30-yard injury time winner. For the wrong team.

It's not often that defenders get the glory at football matches. Week in, week out, they trudge along doing the donkey work while the pretty boys up front pinch all the glory - so long as they don't mess up their hair-dos in the process.

So you'd think that Serbian centre-half Nikola Ignjatijevic would have been only too pleased to have curled a stunning 30 yard header past the keeper in injury time to give Metallurg Donetsk a victory over Zorya in the Ukrainian top flight at the weekend.

There was just one teensy, weensy problem: Ignjatijevic is a Zorya defender, and his bewildering header - under minimal pressure - past Dmytro Kozachenko handed a 2-1 win and all three points to Metallurg.
