WATCH: Roma midfielder stuns Barca with unbelievable strike

By Stephen Barry

It doesn’t look like any of the Premier League clubs are about to do anything special in the Champions League, so where can we turn for some football inspiration?

Barcelona are usually a good bet but it was Roma, their opponents, who produced a goal for the ages.

WATCH: Roma midfielder stuns Barca with unbelievable strike

Well, we say Roma, but this goal was all about Alessandro Florenzi.

Unbelievable Joey!
