Danielle De Rossi’s move to Boca Juniors was one of the more unexpected transfers of the summer. He was a legend in Roma but was allowed to move on.
He’s been hailed as a hero since arriving in Argentina and did that reputation no harm as he scored a thumping header on his debut.
What’s even more impressive is the noise and passion in the celebration from the Boca faithful:

Unfortunately they went on to lose the game on penalties but we shall brush over that for now and hope the Italian inspires a few more big name European players to make the move to South America
