Mexican Keeper Scores In Injury Time In League Final. Goes On To Save Penalty In Shootout
By John Dodge Updated

Mexico's LIga MX was decided last night in dramatic fashion.  Having won the first leg 1-0, Cruz Azul travelled across Mexico City to play in the Azteca Styadiium, the home of opponents Club America. Cruz Azul scored in the 20th minute and lead 2-0 on aggregate into the 89th minute.  With no away goals rule, Mexico's biggest club Club America needed 2 late goals.  The first came in the 89th minute and in the 93rd minute, they got a corner

Club America's keeper Moises Munoz diving header was deflected in and the Azteca erupted as the Mexican League had it's own "Aguerooooo" moment.  After a scoreless extratime period, Munoz saved the first penalty and Club America would go on to win the shootout and complete a memorable comeback.

It is the first championship for the Mexican Giants since 2005 and the celebrations are still ongoing.
