LITERALLY FIRST POINT OF THE SEASON

Serie A newcomers Benevento, in their first ever season in the top flight, set a record (in Europe’s top five leagues) by losing their first 14 games of the season. On Sunday, that streak ended with a 2-2 draw against AC Milan in a most spectacular fashion, with Juventus loanee Alberto Brignoli scoring the late-late equalizer in added-on time. Brignoli is the first goalkeeper to score in the Serie A since 2001, when Massimo Taibi did it the season after his failed spell at Manchester United.

Here’s Brignoli’s goal, celebrated as if they had just won the World Cup.

The sky’s the limit now!
