Sport Recife goalkeeper Mailson Tenorio dos Santos made a dramatic last-ditch save after accidentally throwing the ball towards his own goal.

After somehow conspiring to send it hurtling backwards towards an unguarded net, the 22-year-old managed to race back and kick it off the line just in time.

The incident occurred during a 0-0 draw with Vitória at the Estádio Ilha do Retiro on Wednesday, leaving both teams in a relegation battle with four games to play in the Brasileiro Série A.
