MOSCOW, Russia: 17-year-old defender Ilya Skrobotov scores a dramatic injury-time winner for Zenit against Dynamo Moscow to create history by becoming the first player born in 2000 to score in Russia.

Skrobotov came on after 80 minutes and scored the crucial goal three minutes into time added on as Roberto Mancini's team boosted their chances of a Champions League spot with a 2-1 home win.

Skipper Domenico Criscito gave Zenit the lead in the 57th minute from the penalty spot after Dmitry Poloz had been fouled in the area. 

Bosnian defender Toni Sunjic pulled the scores level with just two minutes to go before Skrobotov's dramatic winner.
