Leeds United Under-23s forward Kun Temenuzhkov has taken to Twitter with his post-match thoughts following the Whites' last-gasp 3-2 win over their Millwall counterparts in the Professional Development League North.
Carlos Corberan's charges began the defence of their national PDL title at home to the Lions on Monday and were on the verge of having to share the spoils, only for a set-piece winner in the sixth minute of injury time giving Leeds all three points.
Leeds opened the scoring five minutes before the break at Thorp Arch, Ezgjan Alioski beating his man and cutting the ball back to Pascal Strujik who slammed a powerful effort into the back of the net.
The Elland Road side doubled their lead in the second half when Eddie Nketiah claimed a close range tap-in, but Millwall bounced back with two goals through George Alexander and Billy Mitchell, and so it stayed as the injury-time minutes ticked by.
In the sixth minute of added time, Leeds won a free kick on the edge of the Millwall penalty area and Mateusz Bogusz stepped up, his effort taking a deflection and flying into the back of the net for a dramatic late victory.
Temenuzhkov, who played the full 90 minutes and had a chance on 82 minutes with an effort from on the edge of the box, said the following on social media, with some fans responding, both on his performance and to his apparent resemblance to a former Elland Road ace:
