Dairon Mosquera emerged as the unlikely hero with his injury-time goal lifting Santa Fe past Internacional 1-0.

The Copa Libertadores quarter-final first-leg fixture was petering out for a draw at the Estadio Nemesio Camacho until Mosquera headed home powerfully from Omar Perez's corner in the 92nd minute in Bogota, Colombia.

Mosquera, who had not scored for Santa Fe this season, found himself unmarked inside the penalty area as he headed low past Internacional goalkeeper Alisson in the second minute of additional time.

Santa Fe, which has won its past three home matches in the Copa Libertadores, will travel to Porto Alegre for the return leg next week.
