Dries Mertens redefined “impact sub” on Wednesday as Napoli fell short in its bid to advance to the Coppa Italia Final for the first time in three years.

Juventus led 2-1 and 5-2 on aggregate when Mertens came into the match for Arkadiusz Milik.

He jogged onto the pitch, accelerated, and just kept going as he took the ball off of fumbling Juve keeper Neto and deposited in the goal.

Sadly, Napoli entered the game in a two-goal hole from the first leg and its 3-2 second leg win was not enough.
