Martin Palermo scores incredible long range header

Perhaps now Martin Palermo will be remembered for something other than missing three penalties in one game.

Fresh from scoring a brace for the Argentina national team in a friendly win over Ghana last week, Palermo settled a 3-2 victory over Velez Sarsfield last night with a 40-metre header that sent La Bombanera wild.

For good measure it was Palermo’s 200th goal for Boca.

(Roman Riquelme’s second in the same game wasn’t bad either.)
