It looked like Swansea was poised to advance in the Europa League with a 1-1 draw late in their second leg match against Napoli. Former Real Madrid star Gonzalo Higuain gave his team the win with a goal in the 78th minute to give them a 2-1 lead.

All they had to do was hold on, and Swansea City was taking some quality shots and getting some opportunities as the game entered stoppage time. With the game a couple minutes into stoppage time, Higuain took the ball to the touchline down field to kill time. He passed it into the middle of the field and the ball found midfielder Gökhan Inler who scored (90′ + 3′) to seal the win for Napoli.
