On the day of his 30th birthday, Genoa’s Rodrigo Palacio (he of ‘abysmal rat-tail/Jedi bog chain’ horror hair fame) scored against Lazio on Sunday with an absurdly deft, over-the-shoulder flick at the near post that lobbed over the flapping Federico Marchetti and in at the far post.
Question is, did he mean it? Have a butcher’s and see what you think…
Did he mean it? Not in a month of Sundays, the jammy so and so! For our money, you can definitely file this one away under ‘speculative near-post flick-on goes incredibly well for Señor Palacio’!
For the record, Genoa won 3-2.
