It’s safe to say that Ciro Immobile is one of the most natural finishers around at the moment.
The Italian is the top goalscorer in the Serie A so far this season by some margin, notching 24-times ahead of Inter’s Mauro Icardi with 18.
His goals have really helped Lazio’s push for a top four finish this term and he was their hero once again against Caglairi at the weekend, with one of the most genuinely stunning goals we’ve seen in a long time.
Trailing 2-1 as the game went into stoppage time, the Italy international produced a moment of sheer brilliance to salvage a point for his side.
Honestly, we can’t stop watching this.
With time ticking away, Brazilian playmaker Felipe Anderson sent the ball into the box into the direction of Immobile.
The pass was too high for his head but too low for him to simply turn and shoot, so he simply but beautifully clipped the ball into the back of the net with an audacious back-heel, securing the 2-2.
Following horrendous seasons at Dortmund and Sevilla, it’s great to see this guy back among the best goalscorers in Europe.
The real question is, will this be up for a Puskas Award?
