Jose Callejon worms through Sassuolo defense to score equalizing goal

Napoli are level thanks to this wonderfully intelligent run from Jose Callejon.

It's been a long season for Jose Callejon. He's done excellently for Napoli in the Europa League, but his form has been up and down in Serie A action, and he failed to score a single league goal in the first half of the season. Now that the second half of the season is underway, though, he broke his duck in a big hurry.

That goal equalized for Napoli against Sassuolo after going down to an early penalty, and it took some highly intelligent work from Callejon to score it. With Lorenzo Insigne coming down to the end line to his left, Callejon recognized his need to work through the line, so he just turned his shoulders and cleverly snuck right through to get to the end of Insigne's little chipped cross. One header later, and Napoli were level.

That's the kind of thing Ziggy can do when he's healthy and rested and motivated. Hopefully we see a whole lot more of the same the rest of the season.
