Amateur side Cannes can’t stop beating Ligue 1 clubs in the Coupe de France

Belkacem Zobrini's 119th-minute goal broke a scoreless deadlock and gave amateur fourth division club Cannes a stunning 1-0 extra-time win over Ligue 1 side Montpellier in the Couple de France's round of 16. That's an impressive enough feat right there, but considering Montpellier beat mighty PSG in the previous round and Cannes beat Saint-Etienne (who are currently fourth in Ligue 1) in the round of 32, you couldn't blame Cannes supporters for thinking they're in dreamland as they head to the quarterfinals.

Cannes, who won the Coupe de France in 1932, started the careers of players like Zinedine Zidane, Patrick Vieira and, er, Gael Clichy. The club's last taste of the first division came in 1998, but the last time they reached this stage of the Coupe de France was way back in 1992.

Once the pitch invasion party died down, Cannes continued their celebration in the dressing room. Have a look...

So far, 2011 Coupe de France winners Lille and second division club Angers are the only others to reach the quarterfinals.
