Kalidou Koulibaly's left peg is lethal. Really, really lethal.
The Senegalese international, who's right-footed, pinged in a absolutely insane shot during Napoli training. Time to gawk:
PICK THAT OUT!
The 27-year-old continues to attract interest from around Europe. He's one of the most sought-after defenders following his defensive heroics.

A host of clubs are reportedly keeping tabs on him including Manchester United. it's believed Jose Mourinho is eyeing him up ahead of tabling a huge summer bid.
Talking of the Koulibaly, who can forget his defensive brilliance to combat Paris Saint-Germain ace Kylian Mbappe?!

The struggle is real when Kylian Mbappé is facing you with a ball at his feet :tired_face: pic.twitter.com/qN2YUAWe1k
With the score at 1-1 in the 75th minute, the French teenager had the ball on the right and recognising that Marco Rui was too far away him, Koulibaly literally shoved his teammate so that he was closer to the PSG No.7, who was then forced to concede possession.
The whole thing was something you'd expect on a mucky playing field at 9 am on a Sunday, not in Europe's premier competition.
But as bizarre as it was, you have to say it worked a treat as a potentially dangerous attack was eventually thwarted. Maybe a few other players will adopt the same unusual approach.
