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.

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

Perfection.

That put them back on level terms with Barca AND it got the Joey Barton seal of approval!

Unbelievable Joey!
