Alessandro Florenzi can not believe the goal he just scored

A.S. Roma will be losing Michael Bradley, but they still have one of the game's best up-and coming attackers among their ranks.

The Romans were reminded of that on Sunday when 22-year-old academy product Alessandro Florenzi scored one of the goals of the season in Serie A thus far, an acrobatic overhead kick that nestled itself perfectly in the bottom corner and past Genoa goalkeeper Mattia Perin.

A great goal for sure, but my favorite part might be the hands-on-head, I-can't-beleive-that-worked, aimless running celebration afterward.

That goal set the standard for Roma, who would go on to score three more in a 4-0 rout. But even with the win Roma remains eight points back of league-leaders Juventus, who won 4-1 against Cagliari.
