DTotD: Pablo Osvaldo’s disallowed overhead stunner

Brooks Peck
Dirty Tackle

Well, this isn't a tackle, but it probably hurt Roma's Pablo Osvaldo more than a two-footed lunge to the kneecap. With Roma already up 2-1 late in their match against Lecce on Sunday, Osvaldo pulled off a brilliant overhead kick for what should have been his sixth goal of the season had the linesman not ruined it with his dubious offside call.

You can see in the replay that Osvaldo was definitely onside. Teammate Aleandro Rosi was, however, in an offside position, but not interfering with the athletic perfection on display.

So, Osvaldo doesn't get official credit for that goal. Thanks to YouTube, that doesn't really matter, though.
