Video: David Luiz’s goal for Chelsea vs Roma
Chelsea defender David Luiz scored from outside the penalty area during tonight’s Champions League game against Roma at Stamford Bridge.
The Brazilian centre-back tried to play the ball in to star striker Alvaro Morata. When his pass was cut out, Luiz took matters into his own and simply fired a curling shot past Roma keeper Alisson and into the net instead.
