Mario Balotelli is capable of doing things that make spectators' jaws drop. On Friday, he added to his collection.

Balotelli's 86th-minute wonderstrike from long range lifted AC Milan to a 1-0 win over Bologna at San Siro, while surely landing himself on highlight reels for the remainder of the week (And season. And his career).

With no defenders closing down, Balotelli lined up a shot from about 35 yards, swinging his right leg through the ball and coaxing it to the far upper 90. Most players might celebrate that goal as if they've just won the World Cup. Not Mario. Balotelli essentially dropped the mic on Bologna, putting his hands on his hips and walking toward his elated teammates, who congratulated him with enthusiasm.

What makes the strike even more incredible was that it came in the waning minutes of a scoreless game, which Milan -- mired in a terrible season by its lofty standards -- needed to win to spark a potential ascent up the table.
