Goalkeeper Aranzubia uses his head to make Depor's point

Deportivo Coruna keeper Daniel Aranzubia rescued a point for his team on Sunday in dramatic style, joining a last-ditch attack to head the equaliser.

Depor were losing 1-0 at Almeria when Aranzubia jogged upfield for a corner in the fourth minute of stoppage time.

He had ventured forward once already, to lend his presence in the penalty area to a Depor free kick but it came to nothing and he was forced to scramble back to his own area.

Moments later, though, he rose above the Almeria defence to glance the corner past his opposite number Diego Alves, denying relegation-threatened Almeria a vital win.

He was mobbed by his team mates as he sprinted away to celebrate with his arms spread and a look of surprise on his face.
