Goal Of The Season In Italy


The football season is drawing to a thrilling close all over Europe but a late contender for goal of the season has come from an unlikely source.

Serie A strugglers Atalanta gave their chances of avoiding relegation a huge boost with a win over mid-table Sassuolo on Sunday and it included an absolute stunner of a strike from German Denis (who is, confusingly, an Argentine), which put the Bergamo-based side into a 1-0 lead.

It featured a backheel flick, a backflicked header and finally a scissor kick, sending their fans wild. We've done this loads of times over the park but there's never a camera around to capture it. We promise.

Sassuolo later equalised, but Denis' second goal of the match - a penalty - sealed the points, putting them 7 points clear of the drop with 8 games left to play.
