We have witnessed some brilliant cameo appearances down the years, but can you name a better super-sub than Ajax youth team goalkeeper Daan Reiziger?

With Ajax locked at 0-0 against Atletico Madrid in the UEFA Youth League and with the contest heading to a penalty shootout, the Eredivisie youth side opted for a late change that would end up making all the difference.

Manager John Heitinga substituted Reiziger on in the 93rd minute just for the penalty shootout and it more than paid off as his heroics sent Ajax through to the quarter finals of the competition.
