Francesco Totti’s rocket blast that beat Juventus

Dirty Tackle

Francesco Totti scored with a lightning bolt/rocket blast/Russian meteor to the top of the net to give Roma a 1-0 win against Juventus and keep Napoli within reach of first place. Totti was set up perfectly by a deflected free kick in the 58th minute and his shot was clocked at 113 km/h (70 mph), which may or may not be fast enough to decapitate a Transformer.

The 36-year-old Roma captain now has nine goals on the season, proving that even with his advancing age, if there is no Totti, there is no party.


Meanwhile, Juventus fans are wondering why there's so much fuss over the Pope leaving.
