Ovelar, 14, scores in SuperClascio

Ovelar, born January the 6th in 2004, scored the opening goal for Paraguayan top-flight team Cerro Porteno in their Superclasico against arch-rivals Olimpia.

The historic derby goal came a week after he made his senior debut for the 32-time Primera División champions.

Nestor Camacho, who scored Olimpia's equaliser in the 2-2 draw, is 31 - more than double Ovelar's age.

The game ended in dramatic fashion - Marcos Acosta putting Cerro in the lead with a 95th-minute penalty and Jorge Ortega equalising with a penalty of his own in the 103rd minute.

This after both teams had a player sent off in a fiery derby encounter that saw Olympia maintain their seven-point lead at the summit of the table.

Ovelar is officially the youngest player to have featured in Paraguay's top division.
