Watch Porto players and bench go wild as manager Sergio Conceicao sends 19-year-old son on who scores last-gasp winner

PORTO manager Sergio Conceicao went wild after seeing his 19-year-old son Francisco net a last-gasp winner.

The vital strike against Estoril Praia came just moments after Conceicao Jr was brought off the bench by his dad.


Former Portuguese international Sergio, 47, saw his side come from behind on two occasions to draw level at 2-2 in the 84th minute.

Then with three minutes of the 90 remaining the Porto boss turned to his teenage son for inspiration as they searched for all three points.

And the youngster immediately had an impact as he rifled home off the bar with just 60 seconds of normal time left on the clock.

Francisco immediately whipped off his shirt and emotionally ran to the corner flag to celebrate with his team-mates, the bench and coaching staff.

But he then quickly realised he wanted to cherish the moment with his father and so sprinted over to be with him on the touchline.

Sergio embraced him, kissing him on the cheek before passionately slapping him on the head several times.

And Porto held out in stoppage time to claim a vital 3-2 victory in the Primeira Liga title race.

As a result of the late win Porto maintain their three-point advantage over defending champions Sporting Lisbon.

But despite Francisco's superb late strike, he still has some way to go if he wishes to replicate the kind of career his father had.

Sergio spent his career at European sides such as Porto, Lazio and Inter Milan, racking up 526 appearances and scoring 73 goals.

He also earned 56 caps for the Portugal national team between 1996 and 2003, netting 12 times.

Sergio appeared at two major tournaments for his country – Euro 2000 and the 2002 World Cup.

His highlight moment for the national team came at the Euros 21 years ago when he netted a hat-trick against Germany in a 3-0 win.

Meanwhile, his young son has made just 34 appearances for Porto so far – with the dramatic goal against Estoril Praia only his second for the first team.
