Quaglia doesn't score ugly goals

Juventus striker Fabio Quagliarella has made no secret of the fact he only likes scoring beautiful goals, even admitting that he isn't a fan of taking penalties.

The 27-year-old Italy international almost had a hat-trick against Catania on Sunday evening. However, his second goal was still memorable.

Quagliarella latched on to a loose ball and rifled the ball into the net from distance with considerable aplomb.

Asked if he can remember scoring any ugly goals, he said: "Not many come to mind. Maybe one with Torino when the goalkeeper tried to dribble past me and lost the ball.

"Unfortunately, these kinds of pieces of luck don't happen often to me.

"The ball has never once hit me in the face and gone in the goal. It usually ends up on the bar instead or when it goes over the line no one sees it…" he joked, referring to the hat-trick that got away.
