Giampaolo Pazzini does his best Pele impression with a chapeu and volley

Dirty Tackle

Giampaolo Pazzini scored both of Milan's goals in a 2-1 win against Bologna (teammate Philippe Mexes scored the goal for Bologna) and his second was a bit special.

In the 82nd minute, with Milan already up 1-0, Pazzini flipped the ball over a defender's head inside the box with his back to the goal and volleyed it past the keeper for his 10th goal of the season. As 101 Great Goals points out, Pazzini's show of skill was reminiscent of a 17-year-old Pele's famous goal against Sweden in the 1958 World Cup. Have a look...

Yes, Pele was just 17 when he did that. In a World Cup. For what it's worth, Pazzini is 28.
