After a spate of brief and largely barren dalliances with Southampton, Juventus and Inter Milan over the past few months, Dani Osvaldo returned to his native Argentina to sign with Boca Juniors (his fourth club in two years) in early February and, as of time of writing, it would appear that he’s having a happier time of it back home.
Currently still on Southampton’s books, Osvaldo opened his account for the night by scoring Boca’s fourth goal in their 5-0 Copa Libertadores drubbing of Venezuelan side Zamora on Thursday night and chose to immortalise the occasion by getting his teammates to pose for a group portrait over on the touchline…
Osvaldo, who also scored Boca’s fifth and final goal on the night, later revealed that his celebration was inspired by Roma old-timer Francesco Totti, who proved he was still young ‘n’ happening by whipping out his phone and taking a selfie after scoring against Lazio recently.
“We went online and saw Totti’s selfie, although Francesco did it alone,” Osvaldo told Fox Sports after the game. “I wanted to do something similar.”
And do something similar he did, this being the resulting photo…
