Debutant Garces rescues Atletico with last gasp goal for 1-1 draw vs Eibar
Madrid Sep 15 (IANS) Spanish football giants Atletico Madrid on Saturday had to wait until second-half stoppage time to pull off a 1-1 draw against Eibar after conceding a late goal in La Liga action.
Borja Garces 19 had an unforgettable debut with Atleti as he scored their lone goal to save a team that has managed to win only one Spanish league game out of four matches so far this season reports Efe.
Atletico Madrid put on a good performance during most of the game but were unable to get past Serbia goalkeeper Marko Dmitrovic.
During the first half Atletico had only three scoring opportunities: France forward Antoine Griezmann first missed on a bicycle kick then had a shot blocked by Dmitrovic who also stopped a header from Spain midfielder Saul Ñiguez.
The match dynamics seemed to be different after the intermission as Atletico managed to threaten Eibar s goal on four occasions just three minutes into the game but nothing changed on the scoreboard.
Dmitrovic blocked a nice header by Uruguay defender Diego Godin and then a powerful shot by Diego Costa while Atletico players missed on the other two chances.
Seeking a way to break the scoreless deadlock coach Diego Simeone decided to replace midfielder Rodrigo "Rodi" Hernandez Cascante in the 73rd minute to give Garces the opportunity to make his debut a decision that drew boos from the stands.
It was Eibar who got into the scoreboard first thanks to Spanish forward Sergi Enrich on a close range right-footed touch punishing the defenders for their failure to clear the area in the 87th minute.
Three minutes into the second-half stoppage time Garces proved worthy of Simeone s trust as he drew his team level on a close range shot.
