Federico Dimarco scored an outrageous goal from the season candidate for Inter Milan on Sunday after opening the scoring against Frosinone on the stroke of half-time.
Inter regained their place at the top of the Serie A standings after a 2-0 win, but it was Dimarco’s sensational strike that sent them on their way to victory.
The Italian defender had scored just eight goals in over 100 appearances for Inter prior to his weekend strike, which will easily be the best pick of the bunch.
Dimarco’s opportunistic effort surprised Frosinone goalkeeper Stefano Turati as the long-range strike sailed over his head and into the net.
The build-up to the goal was started by former Manchester United and Arsenal midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan, who, after winning possession in Inter’s half, played a through ball for Dimarco to run onto.

He did just that and after running the ball into the opposition half, he looked up to see the goalkeeper kicking back and decided to unleash an incredible first-time shot.
The 26-year-old watched as the ball sailed over the head of a diving Turati almost the entire half of the pitch and settled into the back of the net, sending the home fans wild.
The home fans went crazy after witnessing the stunning goal, with players and Dimarco himself leading the celebration on the pitch in response.
Inter goalkeeper Yan Sommer looked stunned as he placed both hands on his head and walked around the penalty spot as his teammates gathered at the other end of the pitch.

Meanwhile, Dimarco made his way to one of the corners of the San Siro stadium, where he was mobbed by teammates who were emphatically celebrating.
Social media were amazed by the Italian’s goal, but many reactions tried to explain that the effort was actually an errant cross that was fired into the net.
A critic posting on X said: That’s never been an opportunity! Full on the shins after trying to find the striker who was goal-side at the back post!
Another added: “He definitely tried to knock the ball in behind the defender.”
However, others tried to give Dimarco credit for his brilliant strike with one post simply stating: ‘One of the best goals I’ve ever seen.’
