[VIDEO PICK: Golazo] Parma's clockwork implementation of an ingenious and devastating free kick routine generated a gorgeous opening goal in its final game of the season, a 3-1 win at Palermo Sunday.

Massimo Gobi came into this game with one goal in three seasons at Parma. The 32-year-old left back scored his second at Palermo on Sunday -- and oh what a goal it was.

A couple bells and whistles precede an unexpected pass setting up this absolute wallop by Gobi to double his goal total at Parma in fine fashion ...
