Alessio Romagnoli Scores Another Last-Second Winner For AC Milan

Defender Alessio Romagnoli produced a striker's finish to score for AC Milan and help his side beat Udinese 1-0.

The Italian club broke on the counter-attack in injury time and looked certain to mess up the opportunity when they passed it to one another as more Udinese players backtracked.

But like a true leader, the Milan captain charged into the box, asked (or demanded) for the ball and stroked in an absolute peach of a strike.

Check out the 23-year-old centre-back's finish below.

What a hit, son! Take a bow.

The scenes after it were equally as memorable, with the players charging over to the away fans to celebrate.

AC have moved into fourth place in Serie A after eleven matches and are level on points with fifth-placed Lazio. Gennaro Gattuso's side are four points behind Napoli and Inter Milan, along with ten points behind league leaders Juventus.

I Rossoneri will be looking to finish this season off strong and fight for a coveted Champions League spot for next season.

Former striker Zlatan Ibrahimović has been linked with a move back to the San Siro, while another former striker, Alexandre Pato, has refused to rule out a return to Milan.

"We'll see at the end of the year," he said. "I'm very happy that Leonardo [Araújo] and [Paolo] Maldini have returned to Milan, for them and also for the fans who needed people to be the face of Milan.

"I've spoken to Leo a few times and, of course, there were some jokes about my possible return to Milan.

"Joking aside, though, I have a year on my contract here in China and we'll see what happens.

"I receive so many comments every day from Milan fans on social media, from Italy and around the world.

"That makes me happy, and it makes me think that despite some years having passed since I left, the affection from the fans has never gone away.

"Who would I like to play with at Milan? That's a question I'd ask the fans: with whom would you like to see me play in this Milan?"

Can Milan qualify for next season's Champions League?

Let us know in the comments.
