Mina’s late strike broke an incredible Premier League record.

His 99th minute strike on Saturday saw the relegation-threathened Toffees steal a point at Molineux Stadium after Wolves had taken a first-half lead.
Hwang-Hee Chan scored after 34 minutes for the home side, but Mina managed to find the net in a crowded penalty area after good work from Michael Keane.
According to OptaJoe, Mina’s equaliser (98 minutes 54 seconds) was the latest Premier League goal that Everton have scored on record (since 2006-07, when exact times are available).
It beats Alex Iwobi’s late strike against Newcastle United last season, which was timed at 98 minutes and 19 seconds and proved to be crucial in the club avoiding relegation.
Iwobi’s goal was also the second-latest winner in Premier League history behind Bruno Fernandes’ last-gasp penalty for Manchester United against Brighton, which was timed at 99 minutes and 45 seconds.
Mina, 28, has barely featured this season as former manager Frank Lampard preferred Conor Coady and James Tarkowski as his centre-back pairing. However, despite making just six appearances all term, new boss Sean Dyche has started the Colombian in their last three games.
Questions will be asked about his future at the end of the season, as his current deal is set to expire this summer and the club will have to wait to see if they can secure their Premier League status before making any transfer decisions.
