Giovinco became the all-time leader in free kicks scored (10) four weeks ago today, a tally which he’s already increased to a dozen as of halftime of Sunday’s 401 Derby clash between Toronto FC and the Montreal Impact, thanks to this beauty which left Evan Bush standing in place, wondering how his life got to this point.

With David Villa back in the Spain squad this week, perhaps the path has been paved for Gian Piero Ventura to consider bringing Giovinco back into the Italian fold as well.
