Goal of the year? Crazy, instinctive, entertaining. Fantastic.

Something special by Roma’s Florenzi against Barcelona this week. Standing ovation from 58,000 spectators. Note that he is a defender (they shouldn’t be taking chances, right?) and he did this against Barcelona in the Champions League, the premier global soccer event. This is what top soccer is about. Let’s encourage our youth to take some risks and try some crazy stuff, folks! You don’t try something like this if you grow up playing a risk-averse game.
