Bosnian striker Edin Dzeko kicked off the new Serie A campaign by scoring an amazing goal that secured his AS Roma side an away win against Torino. 

The game appeared to be heading for a goalless draw until 19-year-old substitute Justin Kluivert - the son of former Barcelona and Netherlands forward Patrick Kluivert - crossed the ball deep into the penalty area for Dzeko to send a deft left-footed volley into the far corner of the net from a difficult angle.
