Sebastian Giovinco puts Italy back ahead

This is one of the most insane games in recent memory, and it's not over yet. Italy turned a 2-0 deficit in to a lead in 13 minutes, then conceded an equalizer, then took the lead again before the end of the match. With the score tied up at 3-3, Sebastian Giovinco netted what looks like it could be a winner for Italy, though counting either team out in a 4-3 game seems utterly ridiculous.

His goal couldn't have been any simpler.

This is heartbreaking enough for Japan on its own, but it's especially heartbreaking in light of what happened just two minutes earlier, when Japan invented a new way to not score by improbably striking the woodwork twice in one second on different shots by different players.
