It was the sort of goal you normally see in a break-time kickabout, not the showpiece of the football world - but it could be the most crucial strike in this year's World Cup!

By stabbing the ball in from three yards, Gelson Fernandes shattered the myth that Spain are invincible and gave fresh hope to every other team in the tournament - including England!

We love him because... he breathed life into the tournament and stood up for underdogs everywhere!
