Torino’s Ciro Immobile scores volley of the year

Who isn’t a fan of volleys?

Oh, you aren’t? Well, then this video is not for you:

Torino striker Ciro Immobile scored an improbable goal against Roma on Tuesday that will have you questioning gravity and physics and all that nonsense. It also proves not to judge a player by his last name.

Immobile one-timed a high-arching pass from midfield and smashed it perfectly past Roma goalkeeper Morgan De Sanctis for the golazo, which brought back memories Antonio Di Natale’s masterpiece a year ago:

Since that epicness, all volleys have been judged against “the Di Natale.” But after Tuesday, we may have to make “the Immobile” the new high-water mark, even if it doesn’t quite have the same ring to it.

Mario Balotelli was booked during AC Milan’s win against Torino over the weekend…by teammate Sulley Muntari.

Balotelli took his jersey off while celebrating his game-winner in the 84th minute, and as everyone who plays the game knows, that’s an automatic yellow card. So, Muntari he decided to have a little fun with it and grab the card out of the referee’s hand and card his teammate himself!

The ref gave a wry smile, but, being all super official-y, showed Balotelli the yellow once more for good measure.
