TORQUAY UNITED’S Brazilian goalkeeper Lucas Colovan rescued his team’s promotion dream with an injury time equaliser against Hartlepool in true Alisson-style.
The Gulls were trailing Pools 1-0 in the National League Play-Off Final at Ashton Gate thanks to Luke Armstrong’s first half strike.
Gary Johnson’s side had defended superbly throughout the second period and appeared to have held firm to seal their place back in the Football League in League Two.
But incredibly in the fifth minute of time added on the stopper struck to save his side and take the game to extra time.
The 30-year-old went up for a corner as Torquay gave it one last throw of the dice but the cross failed to beat the first man.
However, they got a second bite of the cherry and as the ball was whipped back in Hartlepool goalie Brad James came out to collect but was beaten by the head of Covolan as he headed home.
Amazingly, Covolan actually played against Liverpool’s No1 Alisson Becker when they were youngsters in Brazil.
And just a month after the South American scored versus West Brom to secure a point for the Reds, he has now followed suit with a late goal of his own.
