With his side 2-1 down, the 6 foot 5inch goalkeeper rampaged up the field for a late corner.

Tschauner found himself free and jumped gracefully to head the ball beyond his opposite number for his first ever goal in professional football.

"It's unique - something you've always dreamed of," said Tschauner, with tears in his eyes.

"I'm just happy that I got the chance to experience it during my football career."
