Veron's nickname is "la Brujita" (the little witch), for his magic on the field, as well as a tribute to his father, who played soccer with the nickname "la Bruja". This play was an example of pure magic. A corner kick by Veron, against Verona - the direct kick curved into the net untouched - goal Lazio!
