With the score at 2-1 to the opposition, Gulfo charged back to help out his defence.

After scuffing an attempting clearance in intercepting a dangerous cross into the box, the Swiss player fortunately got a second bite of the cherry.

With the ball looping up in the air, Gulfo set himself for an acrobatic clearance.

But instead of hoofing the ball out of danger, he somehow managed to send the ball flying past his own goalkeeper from the narrowest of angles to send his side 3-1 down.

Even more amazingly for Pully, they managed to come back from the dead to draw level at 3-3 at full-time.

They then went on to reach the final after winning 7-6 on penalties thanks to a spectacular final spot-kick save from their goalkeeper.
