Leeds vs. Norwich: All the 2s

Leeds' dramatic penalty shootout victory over Norwich in the EFL Cup proved to be a real game of numbers -- well, make that one number in particular.

For starters, the two sides managed to hammer out a 2-2 draw in normal time, which was watched by a crowd of 22,222 at Carrow Road.

Are you starting to see a theme develop here? Well, just to cap it all off, the full-time whistle was recorded at 22:22pm.

Of course, we're specifically talking about the whistle that signalled the end of extra time here, not the shootout itself, but why let minor details like that spoil such a fortuitous numerical yarn?

Chris covers the funny side of the game for ESPN FC in the Toe Poke blog.
