Chievo’s Marcolini Shows Some Range With 45-meter Goal (Video)
It isn’t often that a misplayed ball just inside your own half of center turns into a goal less than two seconds later, but then again, there aren’t many players with the accuracy and range of Chievo’s Michele Marcolini.
During yesterday’s Italian Serie A action, Marcolini was on the receiving end of an errant pass from a Bologna player, when he decided to give it a go from 45 meters away from goal. That decision would prove to be a good one, as he delivered a perfect ball over the goalkeepers head and into the top corner of the net, giving Chievo the late 2-0 lead. They would hold on to win by the same score.
Here is a look at Marcolini’s goal from long range.
