It was a goal to grace any game, and Dries Mertens will have to go some to better his finish for Napoli against Lazio on Sunday evening.
The Belgian is a great scorer of goals, but rarely can he have hit a first time shot so sweetly and accurately that it beat Lazio keeper, Pepe Reina, all ends up.
At 3-0 by half-time, the Serie A leaders have a chance to make a real statement to the rest of the Italian top-flight.
Anyone watching the game would arguably have had the same reaction as Reina after that ball flew into the back of the net.
Dries Mertens, that is special! ?
