With time ticking down in Rangers' UEFA Europa League campaign, United States international midfielder Maurice Edu delivered.

In second-half stoppage time, Edu ran onto a cross from the right, slid and tapped home the goal that sent Rangers past Sporting Lisbon and into the Europa League final 16. Sporting had gone ahead 2-1 (3-2 on aggregate) just minutes earlier with an 83rd-minute tally, but Edu's goal leveled the score and gave Rangers the edge on away goals. 

Rangers will face PSV Eindhoven in the next knockout stage.
