Field-goal kicking practice pays off for Pjanic?
[VIDEO PICK: Golazo] Miralem Pjanic, Roma's Bosnian midfielder, visited a Denver Broncos practice and took a crack at field-goal kicking before
Roma's game against Manchester United at Sports Authority Field that leads us to believe it inspired him to take the 65-yard shot that resulted in this incredible goal.
Roma was down 3-0
when Pjanic launched the shot from his own half in the 75th minute that beat Man United goalkeeper Ben Amos.
Francesco Totti scored a second for Roma in
the 89th minute, but the EPL club held on for a 3-2 win in front of 54,117 fans.
