Lodi climbs free-kick ladder

Francesco Lodi has jumped up the Serie A free-kick goal standings after his latest masterpiece for Catania.

The playmaker netted his side’s winner in the 3-2 win over Genoa on Sunday after again underlining his dead-ball skills.

The strike was his sixth free-kick in the Italian top-flight and saw him move to fifth in the rankings amongst Serie A’s active players.

Lodi is now level with Sebastian Giovinco of Juventus and Siena’s Gaetano D’Agostino.

Ahead of that trio are Palermo’s Fabrizio Miccoli [7], Antonio Di Natale of Udinese [7], Roma’s Francesco Totti [12] and Juventus magician Andrea Pirlo [17].
