Sebastian Giovinco completed a surprising move to Toronto FC in 2015. Despite being just 27 years old, the diminutive Italian left Serie A giants Juventus to sign for the MLS side.
However, it was a decision that can’t be questioned anymore with the ‘Atomic Ant’ scoring 67 goals in 109 matches for the Canadian side, whom he helped to lift MLS Cup last season.
On Tuesday night, Giovinco scored a fantastic free-kick in the CONCACAF Champions League quarter-finals to knock out Mexican side Tigres.
Fans on Twitter were just in awe of his sheer brilliance:
The praise for the Toronto forward just continued to escalate…
The plaudits swiftly went from a continental level to worldwide… with some supporters even comparing Giovinco with Lionel Messi!
Sometimes, Twitter just takes things too far and that’s when you know you’ve got to log out and call it a day…
