Nc6!, yes.

Bc2? is a BAD move. White should have responded 10. Bd2 with this possible continuation Bxb3 11. bxc3 Bc5 12. axb3 and most of the advantage is gone. Black still wins, but not as fast.

The correct move for the black was: 9... Nxa2! with this possible continuation: 10. Qxb4 Nxb4 11. f3 Nc2 12. Kf2 Nxa1
