Watford F.C. beats Leicester on miracle penalty kick save and goal score, move onto playoff finals (Video)

We posted some miracle finishes here on Outside the Boxscore but this play from the second playoff aggregate match between Watford F.C. and Leicester is one pretty incredible one.

With the score tied at 2-2 based on that aggregate and the game going into the 97th minute of injury time, it appeared that Leicester was going to have a good shot to take the lead with Antony Knockaert getting a penalty kick.

Then all hell broke lose...Watford goalie Manuel Almunia made two saves on the penalty which lead to Watford regaining possession of the ball and ultimately winning the game in the final moments on a rebound goal by Troy Deeney:

Watford moves onto the finals to play for a spot in the Premier League.
