Curzon Ashton striker Adam Morgan admitted he would have happily sacrificed his stunning FA Cup hat-trick in order to seal the non-league side's place in Monday's third-round draw.
Morgan looked to have kept the dream alive after sweeping the National League North side into an improbable 3-0 lead over AFC Wimbledon - including a 35-yard screamer with just 30 seconds on the clock.
But three goals in two late minutes from Tom Elliott, Dom Poleon and Tyrone Barnett hauled the Dons back level at the death before Elliott's second sealed an astonishing 4-3 win in the fourth minute of injury time.
Morgan, who has resurrected his career at Curzon after being released by Liverpool three years ago, insisted: "I'd give the three goals back if it meant we could get through to the next round.
"We've proved today that we no way belong in this division - we've got some fantastic players and a fantastic team spirit - but this is going to take a few days to get over."
Former Liverpool striker Adam Morgan hit a hat-trick but it was not enough to save Curzon Ashton from FA Cup heartbreak as AFC Wimbledon hit back from the dead to claim an extraordinary 4-3 win at Tameside Stadium – surely one of the most amazing comebacks in the competition's long history.
The National League North strugglers - three divisions and 81 places below their visitors - looked to be coasting to victory from the moment Morgan fired a stunning 35-yard opener with just 30 seconds on the clock.
Morgan increased Curzon's lead before the break and completed his hat-trick in the 63rd minute - only for the Dons to strike back with three goals in two minutes from Tom Elliott, Dominic Poleon and Tyrone Barnett before Elliott grabbed the winner deep into injury time.
