Watch Gianluigi Buffon Get Beat By The Only Shot He Hasn't Seen In His 22-Year Career

You've got to hand it to AS Roma's Stephan El Shaarawy. We've never seen a shot make Gianluigi Buffon look all of 39 years of age, but he accomplished it with this absurd effort in Roma's 3-1 victory over Juventus on Sunday. The goal ended up being the match-winner and kept Roma's fading title hopes alive. El Shaarawy has been in fantastic form for his side after scoring a great goal against AC Milan last weekend.
We all know that Buffon has been between the sticks since time immemorial, but the Italian winger made him look as though it was his first time. That's probably because on first viewing, and every subsequent viewing, your first thought is "There's no way in hell that's going in." That's a low-roller for the ages.
