Fabio Quagliarella scored a thoroughly delicious flicked goal during Sampdoria’s 3-0 drubbing of Napoli at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris on Sunday.

The 35-year-old scored his wondrous volley late on, after a Grégoire Defrel brace had put Samp 2-0 up against Carlo Ancelotti’s side.

Quagliarella managed to produce a perfectly angled back-heel from inside the box which left ex-Arsenal ‘keeper David Ospina with no chance…

An utterly magnificent wonder-strike from a supremely gifted player still producing the goods well into the autumn of his fine career.

It should perhaps be noted that Quagliarella is from Naples, and both supports and used to play for the Partenopei. No wonder his celebrations were muted.

The win sees Samp move up to 13th in the table, with Napoli dropping to fifth.

Juventus stay top, courtesy of their 100% start to the new campaign.
