Italian winger Federico Bernardeschi left fans and opponents alike stunned with a rare and sensational goal in Toronto FC’s recent Major League Soccer (MLS) match against Charlotte on Saturday. Bernardeschi scored a direct corner kick that curved over the goalkeeper’s reach and into the far corner of the net, putting Toronto FC in the lead.
Such goals are a rare sight in football, and Bernardeschi’s superb curling effort was no exception. The 29-year-old’s technical ability and precision were on full display as he executed the perfect strike.
Despite Bernardeschi’s heroics, Toronto FC could not hold on to the lead, and the match ended in a 2-2 draw. Nevertheless, Bernardeschi has quickly become a fan favorite in Canada, having joined the team from Italian giants Juventus last summer.
Bernardeschi had served Juventus for five years before making the switch to MLS. Since his arrival, he has been a star player for Toronto FC, even in the presence of his fellow countryman, Lorenzo Insigne.
Bernardeschi’s wonder goal is undoubtedly one of the highlights of the MLS season so far and will be remembered for a long time by fans who witnessed it. With Bernardeschi in their ranks, Toronto FC will hope to climb up the league table and achieve success in the upcoming matches.
