VETERAN SPANISH FORWARD Joaquin scored an incredible 97th-minute winner for Real Betis on Sunday afternoon against Huesca.

The 37-year-old former Valencia star hit an almighty effort from distance which nestled beyond the fingertips of goalkeeperĀ Aleksandar Jovanovic to snatch all three points.

Joaquin, a former Spain international who made 51 appearances for his country, broke the deadlock, before Juanpi levelled from the penalty spot.

The sides looked certain to share a point each, before the forward slammed his long-range effort into the back of the net in astonishing fashion to complete his brace.
