* The 2007 MLS Cup. The New England Revolution scored 8 minutes into the second overtime to go up 1-0, but since it was not sudden death like many sports, the Houston Dynamo had time to score the tying goal - and did, just over a minute later. The Dynamo eventually won on penalty kicks.

* Probably more common in Rugby than you'd think - Since after the 80 minutes passes, play doesn't end until the next stoppage (and even then not if it's a penalty), a well disciplined team trailing by a narrow margin always has time to launch a final attack.

* Probably more common in Rugby than you'd think - Since after the 80 minutes passes, play doesn't end until the next stoppage (and even then not if it's a penalty), a well disciplined team trailing by a narrow margin always has time to launch a final attack. Case in point: trailing 29-32 to South Africa by the 79th minute of their opening pool game in the 2015 Rugby World Cup, Japan twice rejected taking an easy 3 points with a penalty kick, instead going for the win. Two penalties, one rolling TMO (due to an inconclusive rolling maul) and a couple of reset scrums later (resulting in a total of one lineout and ''four'' 5 metre scrums), substitute Karne Hesketh touched down in the corner with his only touch of the game in the 84th minute to seal an improbable victory.

* The 2012 Canadian Grand Prix was the longest race in F1 history, as various stoppages for poor weather stretched its duration out to 4 hours, 4 minutes. Jenson Button, who had been last when the final stoppage occurred, put in an astonishing performance after the restart to climb his way up to second by the start of the final lap. With a few corners to go, and Button closing in, reigning world champion Sebastian Vettel made an uncharacteristic error and span wide, allowing Button through to win and seal one of the greatest performances of his entire career.

* The 2004 Copa America Final between Brazil and Argentina. The score was 2-1, but Brazil managed to score a goal at the ''last second''. This is made even more dramatic, because Brazil and Argentina are the biggest rivals in the history of football. Brazil then won at the penalty shoot out.
* Liverpool were 3-0 down against AC Milan at half-time in the 2005 Champions' League final. Milan were considered to be possibly the best team on the planet, while Liverpool had lost their star striker to Real Madrid the previous summer and wriggled into the final via luck, [[{{Determinator}} a never say die attitude]] and a few moments of magic from their [[TheCaptain Steven]] [[TheAce Gerrard]]. Fifteen minutes into the second half, after three goals in six minutes, the score was 3-3. A double save from Liverpool's goalkeeper Jerzy Dudek against Andriy Shevchenko (then one of the best players on the planet) that was voted the greatest Champions League moment of all time took it all the way to penalties, which Liverpool won.

*** In fact, Manchester United did this ''so often'' under Alex Ferguson (later Sir Alex) that the phenomenon was dubbed "Fergie Time". Indeed, moments before the equalizing goal in the aforementioned Champions League Final, English commentator Clive Tyldesley lampshaded it, remarking, "Can Manchester United score? They always score!"

* Jimmy Glass. The fate of Carlisle's attempts to avoid relegation out of the Football League (and probable folding due to the subsequent finances) has come down to the fourth minute of injury time in the last game of the season, when Glass, [[DesperationAttack their (on loan) goalkeeper, comes up for a corner]].

* The 1995/1996 season of the Danish Superliga, saw Brøndby IF (THE top dog of the league) and Aarhus GF (fielding perhaps their best squad of the past 25 years) locked in a hard-fought duel for the title. In round 30 (of 33) the two faced each other on Aarhus' homefield, Brøndby leading the table with 1 point. In the dying moments of 1st half Peter Møller pulled Brøndby ahead 0-1. After 75 minutes, Aarhus, with an outstanding performance (speaking as a Brøndby fanatic), had a comfortable lead of 3-1! Under normal circumstances this would be the end of Brøndby. A late goal brought some hope, and with 1½-2 minutes again Brøndby got a corner kick. On a whim Brøndby goalie, Mogens Krogh, decided to move into the Aarhus' penalty field (losing the match would spell the end for Brøndby's title aspirations, later Krogh admitted he didn't had the approval of coach Skovdahl to make this move) in order to disrupt their defensive play. In a frantic play, Krogh managed to make the equalizer, with 90 seconds to go. The match ended 3-3. At the season end, Brøndby secured the title with 67 points against Aarhus' 66.
** Years later, Brøndby was fighting a battle to avoid relegation (it would have been its first ever, since reaching top flight football in 1982). As it happened, in the last round of matches, they would be playing away against AC Horsens, it's main contender in the relegation battle. Thanks to a curious win the week before, Brøndby only needed a draw to stay up. However, the match was incredibly dirty, with the referee quickly losing control of the match, refusing to penalise very hard tackles made by AC Horsens players, while penalising Brøndby players at random. One tackle injured Brøndby's main striker, and when a Brøndby player complained to the referee, he recieved his second yellow card and was sent off. With Brøndby down to 10 men, AC Horsens came closer and closer to scoring. That is, until 3½ minutes into overtime, when [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3U1Q9qQnAZs this happened]]

Then, in the second leg, Mirandés were 1-1 in the last injury time when a last minute free kick got them 2-1 and into the Semifinals on away goals.
* The 2012 English Premier League Championship was won in the last match of the season by Manchester City over Manchester United with two goals in stoppage time. United needed to beat Sunderland to stand a chance of overcoming City in the final standings, while City faced Queens Park Rangers. Both matches were played simultaneously; United scored against Sunderland after twenty minutes, putting the pressure on City. City scored against QPR after 39 minutes, retaking the title provisionally. Then QPR equalised after half time and with sixteen minutes remaining sensationally went ahead, leaving City needing two goals to win the Championship. They got the equaliser right on full time and had five minutes of stoppage time to get another. At the same time United vs. Sunderland finished 1-0 in United's favour, leaving United looking like the champions until City's Sergio Aguero fired in a winner right at the death.

However, just 2 minutes before the end of the match and on the injury time, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WSqzb5id71c this]] happened.
* Champions League 2014 final game. Minute 93. Atlético de Madrid is are winning 1-0 against Real Madrid. Atlético fans are already saboring savouring the title (which they have never won). Then, Real gets a corner kick... and Sergio Ramos heads it into Atlético's goal, literally tying the game in the last minute. The morale shock was so high that Real proceeded to curb-stomp Atlético in overtime extra time to win 4-1.

Added DiffLines:

* As of 2016, the Stanley Cup has been won on an overtime goal 17 times. The most famous image of such a feat is Bobby Orr of the Boston Bruins, who fell over as he scored on the St. Louis Blues' Glenn Hall, and was immortalized celebrating with his arms up as he was flying in front of the crease.
** The 1999 Stanley Cup Finals ended on a highly controversial overtime goal scored by the Dallas Stars' Brett Hull on the Buffalo Sabres' Dominik Hasek. It's still a [[BerserkButton sore point]] for Buffalo fans, so [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgment the less said, the better.]]
** As of 2016, only two Cup-clinching overtime goals have ever come in a deciding Game 7. Both of those goals were scored by the Detroit Red Wings: by Pete Babando in the 1950 Finals against the New York Rangers, and by Tony Leswick in the 1954 Finals against the Montreal Canadiens.

* Super Bowl XLIX (2015) ended with the Seattle Seahawks trailing the New England Patriots 2824 during the final two minutes of the game, needing a touchdown in order to win the game. Quarterback Russell Wilson started the drive by completing a 33-yard pass to Marshawn Lynch. Then after another 11-yard first down, Wilson threw a long pass that was tipped by Patriots cornerback Malcolm Butler, but ended up in the hands of wide receiver Jermaine Kearse who was lying on his back; Kearse somehow managed to keep the ball from hitting the ground, placing the Seahawks at the Patriots' 5 yard line with a real shot at winning the game. But after a Lynch 4-yard run put the ball on the 1, Wilson's pass to Ricardo Lockette with 20 seconds left was intercepted by Butler, crushing any hopes Seattle had of winning.

However, the game [[HopeSpot wasn't over just yet]], as the Pats were backed up in their own end zone, and Tom Brady didn't have enough room to take a knee without risking giving up a safety, which would've given the Hawks one more shot. However, Seattle's defense lost its discipline, incurring consecutive penalties which gave Brady more than enough room to run out the clock.
