Leon Osman equalizer for Everton against Norwich

Typical Ossie goal too

For long periods of this Capital One Cup Fourth Round game between Everton and Norwich City it looked like the Blues would be lucky to get a goal. Midfielders Leon Osman and Darron Gibson in particular had come in for a lot of stick because of how slow and off the pace they looked.

So it was ironic in a way that the ageing Osman, who rarely moves faster than molasses rolling downhill on his best day, overcame that obstacle to place a nifty shot past the Canaries' goalie into the far post with just about ten minutes left to play and tie the game.

The goal marked a momentum shift as the Blues pressed forward for a winner, but it was actually Toffees goalie Joel Robles who made an astounding save in the 90th minute to push the game into extra time.
