Giovinco joins exclusive club

Sebastian Giovinco has joined an exclusive group of players to have scored in three elite club competitions.

Giovinco scored the winning goal for Al-Hilal as the Saudi side defeated Esteghlal FC 1-0 in the AFC Champions League group stage on Tuesday.

He netted in last year’s CONCACAF Champions League Final, when Toronto FC lost to Mexican club Guadalajara on penalties after they drew 3-3 on aggregate over two legs.

The 32-year-old, who only joined Al-Hilal in January, managed a total of four goals for Toronto in the CONCACAF Champions League.

The attacker also scored two UEFA Champions League goals for Juventus against Chelsea and Nordsjaelland in the 2012-2013 group stage.
