There are many reasons to watch MLS, but the main one is to watch former Juventus forward Sebastian Giovinco take free-kicks for Toronto.
After a frustrating nine years in Juventus’ first team, in which he was loaned out twice and failed to truly nail down a place in the starting XI, Giovinco joined Toronto in 2015 and has enjoyed a hugely successful spell.
In his maiden campaign he was named the league’s MVP, while last year he helped the side win a domestic Treble.
The 31-year-old has caught the eye on many occasions thanks to his remarkable ability to convert free-kicks, which he summed up succinctly after scoring yet another against Tigres in the CONCACAF Champions League.
And we’ve rounded up 13 of Giovinco’s best free-kicks to show why he is quite possibly the best dead-ball expert in the world.

Jozy Altidore scores, tries to head a beer thrown at him, Giovinco picks up the beer and drinks out of it. Amazing https://t.co/lM8l0sYPJU

Only the post denied us a ludicrous goal.
A throwback to Moussa at his best.
Who would win between Arsenal 04 and Man City 18?
Jose is pretty passionate in his response.
The most joyous player in the Premier League.
There’s a total of 20 to get.
Including a couple of notable sons.
You’ll be hearing a lot more about Allison.
Of course he meant it. He meant everything.
The second half of an epic challenge.
