Result: Sporting Kansas City stage miraculous comeback win over Vancouver Whitecaps

Paulo Nagamura inspires Sporting Kansas City to a miraculous 4-3 comeback victory over the Vancouver Whitecaps in their MLS clash.

Sporting Kansas City scored three goals in the final 10 minutes of the match to record a miraculous 4-3 comeback win over the Vancouver Whitecaps.

The visitors took the lead in the ninth minute when Kekuta Manneh fired them ahead as he managed to slot an effort beyond the reach of Tim Melia.

Manneh doubled his tally for the evening and his side's advantage after he latched on to a cross into the box from Steven Beitashour to head past Melia from close range.

In the second half, Sporting got back into the game when Soni Mustivar lifted a cross into the box which was steered past David Ousted by Kevin Ellis.

Pedro Morales restored Vancouver's two-goal cushion when he curled a free kick from the edge of the box into the top corner to put his side on the brink of victory.

However, Kansas City came back once again as Dominic Dwyer stooped down low to head Krisztian Nemeth's cross past Ousted at the back post.

The home side levelled the scores in the 87th minute when Chance Myers squared the ball for Paulo Nagamura inside the box and the forward maintained his composure to bury his strike into the net.

Sporting capped their miraculous comeback by securing the three points in the dying seconds of the game when Nagamura notched his second goal of the match by heading Mustivar's cross beyond the reach of Ousted.
