Another day, another miraculous come-from-behind win at the 2014 World Cup.
On Sunday, it was Switzerland's turn to stun the world, with Admir Mehmedi and Haris Seferovic cancelling out the opener from Enner Valencia to give their team a 2-1 win over Ecuador.
Mehmedi's headed goal was well-taken, but it will be Seferovic's stunning counter-goal with mere seconds left on the clock that will have people talking for days to come.
Here it is, courtesy of World Cup Fans 2014:

As shared by this fan, Seferovic has a flair for the dramatic:

NBC Sports' Arlo White explained how fast and furious the action was late in this match:
Ecuador had just had an excellent chance to win the match themselves, but Napoli's Valon Behrami threw himself in front of the ball to save his team. The Swiss were able to counter immediately, and just seconds later, Seferovic had the ball in the net, courtesy of some sloppy defending.
beIN Sports was quite excited, to say the least:
Via ESPN FC's Dermot Corrigan, Seferovic was perhaps as unlikely to score the winning goal as anyone:

This fan was just shocked by what he saw from Ecuador, who gave up a promising lead as if it was nothing:
Ecuador ... awful defending— Alex DeJohn (@alexdejohn5) June 15, 2014
ESPN's Brian Canever took it one step further:
Ecuador should be embarrassed of that performance on practically home soil. No tienen vergüenza!— Brian Canever (@BrianCanever) June 15, 2014

According to Bleacher Report's Karl Matchett, fans are truly being spoiled here at the 2014 World Cup:
another amazing finish. 5 come-from-behind winners already in four days. was only 8 in the whole 2010 WC.— Karl Matchett (@karlmatchett) June 15, 2014
Finally ESPN Stats & Info's Paul Carr informed everyone they had just witnessed history:
Haris Seferovic's goal for Switzerland is the latest game-winner ever in the #WorldCup group stage (90'+3).— Paul Carr (@PCarrESPN) June 15, 2014
Playing in the same group as European heavyweights France and Honduras, who defeated Mexico at the Azteca on their way to the World Cup, both teams knew the result of this match would be absolutely crucial.
The Swiss didn't play well (in fact, they played quite horribly) but came through when their backs were against the wall, and that's usually the sign of a good team. Manager Ottmar Hitzfeld will have plenty to take away from this match, and given his sterling reputation as a tactician, Switzerland will most likely look a lot better in their next fixture.
The team took a strong option on qualification for the knockout stages thanks to this late, late winner from Seferovic, who is sure to be welcomed back in Switzerland as a national hero once this tournament comes to an end.
