Low and to the corners. That's what coaches always preach.

Michael Bradley has probably heard the mantra hundreds of times, having a pretty famous coach for a father. And that's precisely how he scored his first Serie A goal for Chievo Verona in a 3-2 victory over Catania this weekend.

As if he was making a crisp pass to the right post, Bradley knocked in Cheivo's first goal of the match in the 6th minute on a perfectly placed, 15-yard shot past the diving goalkeeper. Bradley became the first American to score in Italy's top league since Alexi Lalas (Padova) during the 1994-95 season.

Bradley's accomplishment is almost as cool as Chievo's nickname: The Flying Donkeys. See the clip below:
