Zaidu Sanusi broke down in tears after his dramatic stoppage time winner against bitter rivals Benfica crowned FC Porto champions of Portugal.
Zaidu, whose future at Porto was uncertain at the beginning of the season, finished off a quick counter by his team to smash home the historic winner in the 94th minute.

He had had to endure harsh criticisms from Porto as not good enough only for him to hand them the team’s 30th league title at the death.
It was Zaidu’s second championship medal with Porto.
It was also a sweet victory for the Oporto club as they went to defending champions Benfica to get the result they needed to be crowned kings of Portugal.
They have now recorded an unassailable 88 points from 33 matches, six points clear of closest rivals Sporting Lisbon with only one round of matches to the end of the season.
Benfica are third in the standings.
