The name Ante Palaversa might not be a household name just yet but it’ll be hallowed in one home from now until the end of the time. The Croatian under-19 international netted the final goal need to scoop one SportNation punter £50k from a £400 stake last night.
One of football five selections in his five-fold, the rest of which were as follows:
FA Cup 1st Round replay – Oxford City v Tranmere - over 1.5 first half goals (9/5)
National League North – Blyth Spartans v Stockport - over 1.5 first half goals (6/4)
Euro U19 qualifier – Belgium v France - over 1.5 first half goals (13/8)
Euro U19 qualifier – Bulgaria v Greece - over 2.5 goals (15/8)
Euro U19 qualifier – Croatia v Czech Republic - over 2.5 goals (11/8)
Sides from such glamourous spots such as Blyth and Tranmere did the business for this newly-minted punter as well as the Croatian youngster, who is from the somewhat more picturesque locale of Split according to some hasty Wikipedia work.
Georgia Wilson of www.SportNation.Bet said: “An otherwise quiet night of matches from Blyth to Bulgaria has turned into one our lucky winner will never forget.
With the first three selections in the bag by the halftime whistle, up stepped an unlikely hero in the shape of Croatian youth player Palaversa with his goal at the death sealing one of the most obscure accumulators in history.”
