Hernani Scores in Extra Time, Porto in Semifinals of Portugal Cup

LISBON – Hernani’s 118th-minute extra-time goal saved Porto from second division side Leixoes on Tuesday and sent them into the semifinals of the Portuguese Cup, where they will face Braga next.

The visitors seemed to be on course to win the match with an 11th-minute goal from Mexican midfielder Hector Herrera, although Leixoes, the only second division team in the quarterfinals, managed to draw 1-1 in the 78th minute with a goal by Brazilian Paulo Pinto.

The 1-1 draw ended normal time and, when it looked as if the semifinals would be decided on penalties, Hernani, who had come out on the pitch in the 99th minute, scored in the 118th minute and completed the hosts’ elimination.

The players coached by Sergio Conceiçao will now face Braga for a place in the final of the Portuguese Cup, who previously eliminated reigning champions Desportivo das Aves with a Wilson Eduardo brace.
