Italian striker Fabio Quagliarella has scored what could well be the goal of the season to pile on the misery for Napoli.
The Italian striker who is known for scoring quite a number of beauties, had earlier provided an assist for Gregoire Defrel before stamping his authority on the match with an unbelievable strike in the 75th minute.
There was a cross from defender Bartosz Bereszynski and Quagliarella was on hand to redirect the ball with so much power with his back to goal. He delivered a backheel of such power and precision that Napoli’s David Ospina had no hope of getting a hand to it.
Quagliarella has been a bit of a journeyman in his career having turned out for 8 different Serie A clubs, most prominently with Juventus with whom he won 3 Serie A titles.
It’s not enough to just speak about it, check out the goal and the reactions below

This is goal embodies Quagliarella. He loves to score goals out of the ordinary. Extremely underrated striker, who has been through so much, and just wants to play football. pic.twitter.com/3COEsQHFtQ

There are so many beautiful things going on after Quagliarella’s goal, which is obviously the highlight but then afterwards, the reaction of the crowd, his teammates and then at the end when he apologizes to the keeper? I love this game so much (📹:@ESPNFC)pic.twitter.com/wuSPDafAPp
