In the 41st minute of this afternoon’s Carabao Cup Final between Manchester City and Aston Villa, the Villains were handed a lifeline by Mbwana Samatta.
England international John Stones made a costly mistake as he tripped up and fell to the floor, leaving Villa ace Anwar El-Ghazi free to charge down the wing.
The wideman floated a dangerous cross into the box and Mbwana Samatta pulled off a superb diving header to pull a goal back for the West Midlands outfit before halftime.
Take a look at the Tanzanian’s lovely header below:
Out of nowhere, #AVFC are back in it!
