Napoli's Gonzalo Higuain caps historic day with beautiful bicycle kick goal

BY foxsports • May 14, 2016

Gonzalo Higuain scored a sensational hat trick for Napoli on Saturday, capping his day with a ridiculous bicycle kick and entering his name into the Serie A record books.

Sit back, relax and prepare to be mesmerized.

The exquisite touch is outshined only by the fantastic finish. With his hatter against Frosinone, Higuain swiped the title of Serie A's all-time leading single-season goal-scorer. Gunnar Nordahl's record of 35 goals scored stood for 66 years, but Higuain managed to best the A.C. Milan legend's mark this season.

And what a way to make history. Let's take another look from a few alternate angles.

Yes, Napoli's season ended in disappointment as Juventus ran away with the Serie A title, but this was a nice way to finish. The win locked up second place, which gives them direct entry into the Champions League group stage. And if this is the last that Napoli fans see of Higuain in sky blue (he's been linked to a move away from the Stadio Sao Paolo) at least he'll be leaving them with a lasting memory.
