Posted by

In the 87th minute of RB Leipzig’s Champions League quarter-final against Atletico Madrid, the Red-Bull backed Bundesliga outfit scored a dramatic late winner.

Leipzig played the ball into Angelino on the left-wing and the Manchester City loanee did well to play the ball across to Tyler Adams just outside the box.

The United States international notched the biggest moment of his career – and also Leipzig’s history – by drilling an effort towards goal, which was turned into the back of the net after a deflection.

The strike ricocheted off of Stefan Savic and flew over the line, completely catching Jan Oblak off guard.

Take a look at the youngster’s historic goal for the side below:
