Goals are fun. Everybody adores the goalscorer. They are the lifeblood of football. Sometimes however it’s what comes before that that’s what counts.
The San Siro might not be the most formidable place to get a result these days but there’s still something to be said for turning up at a rival stadium and silencing the home fans. It took Napoli all of six minutes to open the scoreline, Lorenzo Insigne’s finding the net after a whirlwind of a break. A few minutes later and Callejon’s tight angle finish all but had the game wrapped up. Both goals had a touch of class about them in the finish but neither would exist without the dead eye vision and technique of Dries Mertens.
Having seen this, we can’t wait for the next time he and all of the other incredible players Belgium have at their disposal underpeform massively.
