The rest of the continent watched in amazement as the Atomic Ant put a perfectly placed free-kick in the top corner – hitting the inside of the post – on it’s way to the back of the net. It was the goal that ultimately sent Toronto FC through to the CONCACAF Champions League semi-finals and the moment when Sebastian Giovinco cemented his spot as the best in the region.

Nainggolan back in Belgium squad

Belgium have brought Roma midfielder Radja Nainggolan back into their squad for upcoming friendlies against Mexico and Japan.

He is joined in Belgium’s squad by fellow Serie A pair Jordan Lukaku and Dries Mertens.
