Andre Gomes scored a magnificent goal to seal Benfica's place in the Portuguese Cup final.

Gomes showed remarkable control to beat his man and get into position to shoot, just 10 minutes from full time.


The goal made it 3-1 to Benfica on the night and 3-2 on aggregate.

Worst of all for Porto? Gomes was born in the city and the 20-year-old appears to have spent part of his youth with the club, according to his Wikipedia profile.
