My word, that's a free kick and a half by Wesley Sneijder. With Inter tied 0-0 at Sampdoria with just a little under 20 minutes to play, Daniele Gastaldello turned a fairly quiet situation into a major threat by hauling down Giampaolo Pazzini 25 yards in from of the Sampdoria goal. It was a clear foul, but Gastaldello was rather at odds with the decision, screaming and shouting at the referee for some time before the poor man had no choice but to show the centre half a yellow card. Of course, while Sampdoria were arguing about the free kick, Inter were planning their strike, and with Sneijder over the ball a moment of magic is never far away.
Gianluca Curci was still setting up his wall when the whistle blew, so Sneijder simply clipped it over the startled defenders and into the back of the net, possibly grazing the post on its way past the scrambling goalkeeper and into the back of the net. Curci complained about the quick free-kick, but it was totally legal and probably would have gone in anyway. Just minutes later, Sneijder made friends with the goalpost from a second free kick. All Inter Milan right now as they chase the Serie A leaders.
