Amiens SC was staring at a 1-1 draw and another season in French’s Ligue 2, the second tier. That is, until it secured promotion in the most dramatic fashion ever.
Sitting in sixth place in the live Ligue 2 table prior to free kick in the last seconds of stoppage time, Amiens was given the gift of promotion from Emmanuel Bourgaud, whose kick on the final whistle of the season allowed the club to leap four others with a stunning 2-1 win over Reims.
Amiens’ bench cleared immediately after the goal, with teammates and coaches mobbing Bourgaud, while the visiting supporters were thrown into a frenzy–much like the broadcaster who called the action for TV.
