AC Milan's Philippe Mexes tries a return and scores during their Champions League Group C soccer match against Anderlecht in Brussels Reuters

It happened in AC Milan’s Champions League Group C soccer match against Anderlecht in Brussels last week: as Milan defender Philippe Mexes scored on a bicycle kick. I’m no soccer expert, but that looks pretty amazing. It looked even better to Italian soccer commentator Tiziano Crudeli.

From what I gather, Crudeli is the Don Cherry of Italian soccer, if Cherry drank a gallon of Red Bull. Or as Awful Announcing describes him:

Nobody does “crazy old guy soccer fanatic” quite like Tiziano and his fame across the pond has even led to starring roles in commercials for gambling website Ladbrokes.  

We don’t have video of the actual goal, but we do have it of Crudeli’s reaction. It’s priceless.
