Portuguese club Porto find themselves right where they need to be in the middle of March, in the thick of the Premeira Liga title race. Things did not look so rosy on Saturday, when Porto were tied with lowly Uniao de Madeira nearing the full-time whistle. Then Jesus "Tecatito" Corona said "lol nope" and won the game for Porto.
Coronal wasn't the only Mexico international to score for Porto Saturday. Hector Herrera put Porto up 2-0 in the 51st minute with a nifty goal.

At that point, it looked like Porto had the thing sewn up and all they had to do was see the game out. Then Madeira put Danilo Dias in, he scored two quick goals and the game was back on.
It looked like it would end in a draw and Porto would drop valuable league points. Then, as previously mentioned, Tecatito remembered that he's good at soccer so he did a good at soccer thing.
