Real Sociedad striker Haris Seferovic was on target with just 23 seconds left on the clock to convert Ricardo Rodriguez's cross on the counter attack and make it 2-1 on Sunday.

Ecuador had taken the lead in the first half when Enner Valencia headed his team in front after some poor defending by Switzerland, however the Swiss equalised right at the start of the second period.

And after a Josip Drmic effort was wrongly ruled out for offside, they will feel justice was done when Seferovic's added time strike gave them all three points in a tight Group E clash.

Question : If a penalty taker strikes the post but quickly slams home the rebound, is it a goal?
